You know what I like about getting email from Pininfarina? It could be about anything. It could be about a speedboat. It could be about a zillion dollar limited edition Ferrari Sergio. It could be a total accident. Today it's about a bicycle.

For the money you'd spend on a really nice Cadillac Allante you can buy a significantly more limited Pininfarina Fuoriserie. You'd sacrifice two wheels, an occasional, roof and the ability to tell your friends that your car's body was packed onto 747's and then flown to the US for assembly. Just 30 of the Fuoriserie will be made, each with burl walnut covered top tubes and woven leather grips and seats, an homage to the Pininfarina designed Lancia Astura Bocca.

At it's full €9000 price tag the Fuoriserie boasts an electric assist motor in the hub. Knock off three grand and the Fuoriserie ditches the electric kicker motor, giving that Allante a fighting chance off the line.
