12 1:43-scale models of Pininfarina's most famous cars will be shown as part of the International Toy Fair in Nuremburg.
Fans of the carrozeria will get the chance to reflect on some of the most beautiful cars of the modern era in miniature form in the ‘Special Cars by Pininfarina' exhibition.
"I have personally chosen the models that now form part of the ‘Special Cars by Pininfarina' collection to give to car fans like myself the chance to live the Pininfarina legend to the full," said Pininfarina Group chairman Paolo Pininfarina.
The Collection will include the Cisitalia 202 of 1947, the Lancia Aurelia coupé PF200 of 1952, the Lancia Aurelia cabrio PF 200 of 1954, the Lancia Florida II of 1957 and the Sigma Grand Prix of 1969.
Tthe Modulo of 1970 is another piece sure to attract a lot of attention, as is the Ethos of 1992, the Enjoy of 2003, the Birdcage 75th of 2005, the Sintesi of 2008, the 2uettottanta of 2010 and the Cambiano of 2012.
As an added incentive, Pininfarina also announced that he will invite the first ten collectors who complete the set to a ‘Pininfarina Fan Day', when the carrozeria will throw open its doors to give the lucky few a chance to experience "our world, our history, our cars, products and the men who have made our name great," he declared.
