Set to make its world debut at the British Louis Vuitton Classic, scheduled for 5 June 2004 at Waddesdon Manor (Waddesdon, Great Britain), is the Pininfarina Enjoy, inspired by the concept car of the same name which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2003. This is a dream come true, even if just for the lucky few. Because Pininfarina intends to weigh, through a promotional tour, the interest of collectors and enthusiasts towards a special car which is supposed to be manufactured and sold in only 75 units during 2005 to celebrate the company’s 75th anniversary. And thanks to the Enjoy Pininfarina has started up a new prestigious partnership with the most important luxury brand in the world, Louis Vuitton, which was commissioned to work on the interiors of the vehicle.
The Nido concept builds upon Pininfarina�s grand tradition of continuous investment in research and development programs in each of the Company’s areas - Design, Engineering and Manufacturing - to quickly and methodically tackle contemporary problems as they arise in the automotive industry. For example, during the 70�s energy crisis, the industry looked towards aerodynamics and alternative energy sources to cut fuel consumption. Pininfarina responded by developing the CNR Energetica 1 prototype, an ideal aerodynamic body shape, and the electric powered Ecos. In the 80’s Pininfarina’s pioneering research into lightweight material application bore the Audi Quartz and Lancia Hit prototypes, which explored the use of new light metallic and composite materials.
