1978 Pininfarina Studio CNR

The Pininfarina CNR won the Compasso d’Oro Award 1979 for its Ideal Aerodynamic Shape, the outcome of a theoretical, experimental research project promoted by the National Research Italian Council. The outstanding drag coefficient (CD=0.20) allowed Pininfarina to reduce fuel consumption substantially. It was presented at the 1978 Turin Motor Show.
