The project started life as a reboot of the Fiat Coupe. I used to own a Fiat Coupe 16v Turbo, and whilst it frequently broke down and cost me a fortune in repair bills, I just didn't have the heart to get rid of it. I still turn my head every time one drives past me. The Pininfarina styling inside as much as outside just oozes Italian flair and really was, and still is different to anything else on the road. Some people have referred to it as a "baby Ferrari". So I began sketching out ideas for a Fiat Coupe for 2012. After roughing out the body in 3d I changed my mind and decided that I wanted to build something that was more of a luxury rather than a budget sports car and wondered what a car that was designed by Pininfarina, but under its own badge rather than for Fiat or Ferrari might look like, and so it evolved from there. The result is the Pininfarina Coupe. A front-engined, rear wheel drive luxury sports car that captures the essence of the Italian thoroughbred. Clean, unfussy, elegant and fast!
