MARANELLO, Italy - A new exhibition showcasing the work of car designer Sergio Pininfarina will open in October 2012 at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy.

The displays will be spread over three halls containing race cars, Ferrari-Pininfarina concept models and 11 road-going Ferrari models which were designed by the maestro, who died in July 2012 aged 85.

Pininfarina, born Sergio Farina, was responsible for many notable car designs for many automakers.

BB PROTOTYPE ON DISPLAY

Exhibits in the race car section will include the Le Mans-winning 250 LM, the 250 SWB, which legendary British driver Stirling Moss drove to victory in the Touring Trophy, as well as Pininfarina's experimental F1 Sigma.

The line-up of Ferrari-Pininfarina models will include the BB prototype originally shown at the 1971 Turin motor show.

The exhibition will be open to the public from October 27 2012 to January 7 2013.
