Cisitalia – 202 Pininfarina

It was the first car to be permanently on display in a Museum of Modern Art, the MoMA in New York; it was manufactured on a limited basis (about 170 units, including convertibles) for Cisitalia at the Stabilimenti Farina (Corso Trapani, Turin).


Vehicle Overview

Unveiled in 1947 at the exhibition of Coachbuilders at the Milan Triennale. It won the first prize at the Villa d’Este Concours d’Elegance (Cernobbio, Como) in 1947, Villa d’Este Gold Cup. A design that combines the volumes harmoniously. This 2-seater Berlinetta, possibly the most  famous post-war Pininfarina car, with its synthetic shape, said by Arthur Drexler in 1951 to be “a rolling sculpture”. Its shapes are the finishing point of all the previous research: simple essential front; full volume roof panel, with clearly designed rear window. On a tubular chassis, Pinin built a Berlinetta with aluminium frame welded to a skeleton of fine sheet steel.
