Peugeot 404 Coupé Pininfarina

The Peugeot 404 Coupé designed by Pininfarina.

Vehicle Overview

The Peugeot 404 Coupé emerged from a fruitful collaboration between Peugeot and Pininfarina, crafted with precision in Pininfarina’s esteemed San Giorgio Canavese factory near Turin, Italy. Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1962, this elegant coupé showcased sleek and sophisticated styling, meticulously overseen by Pininfarina. Reflecting Peugeot’s longstanding tradition of coupé excellence, dating back to the type 21 in 1898, the 404 Coupé boasted a harmonious blend of French flair and Italian craftsmanship. Its distinct body lines, characterized by a graceful body crease after the door, set it apart as a true automotive masterpiece. A testament to the success of the collaboration between Peugeot and Pininfarina, the 404 Coupé represented a departure from conventional production practices. Unlike previous models, Pininfarina assumed complete responsibility for the fabrication of the coupé’s body in its Turin factory. These bodies, adorned with Pininfarina’s discreet logo, were then shipped to Peugeot’s factory in Sochaux for final assembly, ensuring the highest standards of quality and precision. Alongside the Coupé, a Cabriolet variant was also developed, featuring the same meticulous design and craftsmanship by Pininfarina. This Cabriolet echoed the elegance of the Coupé while offering open-air motoring enjoyment. Over its production span, the 404 Coupé underwent subtle revisions, reflecting the evolving tastes and preferences of automotive enthusiasts. Updates to the front turn signals in 1966 and a slight facelift in 1967 further enhanced its allure, solidifying its status as a timeless classic. Despite its limited production numbers, the Peugeot 404 Coupé left an indelible mark on automotive history, celebrated for its exquisite design, meticulous craftsmanship, and enduring appeal. Today, it remains a cherished icon among collectors and enthusiasts, symbolizing automotive excellence and the collaborative spirit between Peugeot and Pininfarina.
