HONOURING A LEGEND: The Ferrari museum pays homage to the late designer Sergio Pininfarina with a special exhibit in October 2012.

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.

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

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.
