Pininfarina: best designer of the year 2009 by L’Automobile Mazazine

Pininfarina has been considered the best designer of the year 2009 by the jury of the French magazine L’Automobile Magazine.

The 2009 Trophée du Design was awarded to Pininfarina thanks to its work in the development of two of the most appreciated cars of this year, the Ferrari 458 Italia and the Maserati GranCabrio.

According to the magazine, the award was the recognition of Pininfarina’s merit of creating in 2009 two models that “takes our breath away”, “the most beautiful rebellion signs that Pininfarina could give us: even more than the diversification realized along the years (prototype construction, study centre, engineering laboratory, collaboration with Bolloré for the development of an electric car), the 458 Italia and the GranCabrio prove that Pininfarina has no intention to turn over a new leaf”.

Pininfarina had already been awarded the Trophée de Design in three previous occasions. The first was in 1992 when it received the Super Trophée for the ecological value of the Ethos prototype and for the technical and stylistic contribution given to Ferrari. In 1998 received the award as the best coachbuilder in the world in recognition of its creations of the last twenty years. Finally, in 2005 the Trophée d’Honneur was awarded to Sergio Pininfarina – currently Honorary Chairman of the Group – recognizing his activity and the 75 years of the Company.
