This remarkable car pays tribute to Battista's dream of creating a Pininfarina-branded vehicle, and his influence extends beyond the automotive realm. As the uncle of Nino Farina, Battista played a pivotal role in igniting Nino's passion for motorsport. In fact, he introduced Nino to racing at the young age of 16, sparking a lifelong love for competition. Nino Farina went on to participate in numerous races and championships, leaving an indelible mark on the world of Formula One.
