Pininfarina Extra, is part of Pininfarina, the internationally known design house, whose history dates back to 1930 when it was founded by Battista Panin-Farina, who began the most famous car designer of his age. La Cisitalia 202 (1947), for example, was the first and the unique car to enter in the permanent collection of MoMa in New York in 1961. Moreover, until today, more than 100 produced Ferrari were designed by Pininfarina.
