The Pininfarina arrived at my doorstep in with a solid THUMP.
After giving the delivery guy the customary tip (don't eat yellow snow), I picked up the box to carry it inside……..and just as quickly set it back down again. This is one heavy box!
Inside the box, nestled between two heavy-duty pieces of packing foam is the Pininfarina.
