Dave Amantea, Chief Design Officer at Automobili Pininfarina, expressed his pride in the achievement, stating: “Winning the Red Dot Award: Design Concept is a huge honour for the brand and testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team.

Inspired by Iconic Designs

The PURA Vision draws inspiration from several iconic designs of the past. Its low bonnet and high fenders are reminiscent of the 1947 Cisitalia, while the glasshouse design takes cues from the Alfa Romeo Superflow IV. The tri-opening pillarless lounge doors offer unrestricted access to a futuristic and luxurious 2+2 cabin, echoing the pillarless design of the Lancia Florida, styled by Battista Farina in the Fifties. This blend of historic inspiration and modern innovation embodies the PURA design philosophy that Automobili Pininfarina champions.

Attention to Detail

One of the standout features of the PURA Vision is its exterior “jewellery,” which includes a precisely engineered anodised aluminium beltline that elegantly traces an unbroken arc around the vehicle from the windscreen. This level of detail exemplifies the craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail for which Automobili Pininfarina is renowned.
