Pinin Farina Ferrari 410 Superfast (#0483SA) at Paris Motor Show.
Completely new from this versatile Italian coachbuilder is a coupe on a 4.9-litre V-12 Superamerica Ferrari chassis. The windscreen is pillarless and offers extremely good visibility combined with a fine aesthetic appearance. On the car exhibited, the screen is of plexiglass due to the short time available for manufacture, but its shape could be reproduced easily in glass. In the absence of screen pillars, the roof is of cantilever construction and the canopy would appear to gain considerable torsional rigidity from, its depth of section and domed outline. It is another example of how this ingenious Italian designer pioneers ideas for the future.
