Former Ferrari designer Sergio Pininfarina has died at the age of 85. The Italian was the architect of many of the brand's signature models, including the 1984 Ferrari Testarossa, 2002 Ferrari Enzo and 2004 Ferrari Scaglietti.
Ferrari wasn't his only brand, as Pininfarina extrapolated his career beyond the boundaries of his family-founded company. His father, Gian Battista 'Pinin' Farina, began with construction in 1930. Outside the Ferrari mould, Pininfarina also created designs for Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Rolls-Royce, Chevrolet, Cadillac, Bentley, Volvo and Peugeot.
Pininfarina's career changed in the 1960s when he became the company's CEO in 1961, and chairman after his father passed in 1966. That lasted for 40 years, to become honorary chairman, when he stepped down in 2006.
Famed Porsche designed Ferdinand Alexander Porsche passed on only a few months ago in April, and one of America's most legendary designers Carroll Shelby passed in May.
