Pininfarina S.p.A. (short for Carozzeria Pininfarina) is an Italian car design firm and coachbuilder in Cambiano, Italy. Founded as Società anonima Carrozzeria Pinin Farina in 1930 by automobile designer and builder Battista "Pinin" ( "baby of the family") Farina, Pininfarina has been employed by a wide variety of high-end automobile manufacturers, including Ferrari, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, Cadillac, Jaguar, Volvo, Alfa Romeo, and Lancia. It also has designed trams in France, high-speed trains in Holland, and trolleys in the USA. Since the 1980s Pininfarina has also consulted on industrial and interior design. At the age of 68, “Pinin” Farina turned his firm over to his son Sergio and his son-in-law, Renzo Carli. and the President of Italy authorized the change of Farina’s last name to Pininfarina.
Officine Specializzate Costruzioni Automobili - Fratelli Maserati SpA (established 1947 in Bologna, discontinued 1967) was an Italian brand of sports car automobiles, usually abbreviated to O.S.C.A., OSCA or Osca. Founded by Ernesto (engineering manager) and his two brothers Ettore, and Bindo Maserati (operations managers) when they left Maserati after their ten-year contract with Adolfo Orsi had terminated. In 1937, the brothers had sold their shares in the company to the Orsi family, who, in 1940, had relocated the company headquarters to their hometown of Modena, where it remains to this day.
