Classic Italian car designer PININFARINA has launched an extremely limited edition custom-built bike.
Manufactured by 43 Milano, the “Pininfarina Fuoriserie” was inspired by the brand’s 1930s and 40s designs such as the Carrozzeria Pinin Farina.

Featuring a chromed steel frame adorned with a walnut briar-root coating, the bike’s heritage is referenced in the leather-clad handlebars and in the seat, dressed in the same fabric used for the interior of Pininfarina’s limited edition 1936 Lancia Astura Bocca model.
It isn’t all classic throwbacks, though; concessions to modernity include Bike+, a booster system that optimizes the cyclist’s energy through a miniaturized electric engine, allowing the rider to cover longer distances.
There is also an LED lighting system based on a brand-new high performance lamp and a plug connector which recharges mobile phones through the dynamo.
Just 30 of the bikes will be produced and prices start at €6,000 for the “naked” version and €9,000 for the motorized edition.
The bikes are available for purchase at store.pininfarina.com.
