A 1967 Ferrari 365P Berlinetta Speciale “Tre Posti,” the last vehicle bodied by Pininfarina for a private client,
will replace the 1966 Dino Berlinetta 206 GT Prototype in April 2021.
“With its commitment to elegant, aerodynamic design and small-scale production, Pininfarina has created
some of the most innovative and revered car designs in the history of the automobile,” said Petersen
Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “The new exhibit will provide visitors with a
behind-the-scenes look at the company’s design history while paying homage to its innovation through
these four rarely-seen vehicles.”
“We are honored that a prestigious museum such as the Petersen is dedicating an exhibition to our
anniversary,” said Chairman of the Pininfarina Group, Paolo Pininfarina. “The models on display perfectly
represent our identity, which today is the same as in the 1930s: the centrality of design, an aesthetic sense
capable of creating timeless beauty, the obsession with quality, the force of a tradition that combines
industry, technology and stylistic research. Pininfarina has built up 90 years of innovation in compliance
with these values”.
The exhibit will join several other Pininfarina-designed vehicles currently on display throughout the museum.
On the Otis Booth History Floor, the vehicles on display include a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT Interim Berlinetta,
1985 Ferrari 288 GTO, 1989 Ferrari Testarossa, 1991 Ferrari F40 and a 2004 Ferrari Enzo as part of the
“Supercars” exhibit. In The Vault presented by Hagerty, there are additional Pininfarina-designed vehicles
available for viewing including a 1953 Nash-Healey Roadster, 1954 Nash-Healey Le Mans Coupe, 1972
Ferrari 365 GTC/4, 2001 Ferrari 550 Barchetta, 2010 Ferrari 599 GTO, 2014 Ferrari F12, 2017 Ferrari F12
