A new exhibition showcasing the work of car designer Sergio Pininfarina for Ferrari opens on Saturday at the Museo Ferrari in Maranello - home of the Prancing Horse marque.

The displays are spread over three halls containing racing cars, Ferrari-Pininfarina concept models and 11 roadgoing Ferrari models whose distinctive silhouettes were drawn by the maestro who died in July, aged 85. Born as Sergio Farina, the star designer was responsible for many notable car designs from Italian and other manufacturers.
