Re: Pininfarina dead, killed driving a Vespa

I actually can't find any evidence that he (or even the company) designed the TC though.

Re: Pininfarina dead, killed driving a Vespa

Isn't it the "Chrysler TC by Pininfarina"?

I always thought that was the actual name of the car

Re: Pininfarina dead, killed driving a Vespa

Damn, that is sad. The vespa thing makes me think about to my time in France a few years back. I wonder if the rate of two wheel accidents and fatalities is greatly higher per capita of 2 wheel drivers then here? I remember looking down on the Champse Ellise from the Arc De Triumph and seeing at least a score of near misses from crazy perisians on their Vespas weaving through traffic...and not traffic at a stand still, but traffic going maybe 25-30mph with vespa drivers weaving through and cutting off cars going maybe 35 or 40mph.
