Shocking news from Turin, Italy.

It is a tragedy! Just a few hours ago, Andrea Pininfarina has died in a motorcycle accident.

The first information from

"The accident took place on via Turin, the gateway to the Italian city, when a car crossed Pininfarina's path just before 8am. According to accounts, Pininfarina was riding his Vespa when a Ford Fiesta driven by a 78 year old man darted out from a road to the right. His view was obstructed by a truck parked on the side of the road, resulting in the violent impact. He died of the resulting injuries. He was 51."

I am impressed... so sudden, unexpected... even stupid death. It is a big tragedy for me, for car-design industry, for all car-designers...

Ciao, Andrea! You are forever in automobile history!
