Effeffe: An Italian diva
The Berlinetta is a car with a strong personality, conceived in the mode of the essential, without any superfluous. A beauty inspired from the 50’s era, it combines glamour and nostalgia with modern and reliable performance.
Everything about this car is responsive, it offers the ultimate experience of driving. Each maneuver by the driver provokes a precise and immediate reaction from the Berlinetta, without any inertia.
The Officine Fratelli Frigerio
The autonomy and the manufacturing of the parts within the Officine Fratelli Frigerio, are privileged to ensure total control of the design and the assembly of the Berlinetta. Built by hand with passion, each car is a bespoke project: the true tailor made. The members of the effeffe team are manufacturers and artists with a genuine passion for craftsmanship and cars. They build cars that make sense and get people excited.
The Berlinetta is a car inspired by those few with the courage, audacity, and creativity to live by their own rules. It is a creation in its pure state, between the craft and the work of art. At the prototype stage, the bodywork’s sculptural forms are the result of the coachbuilder’s imagination, and mastery of shapes and materials, without any prior drawing. As a symbol in an era of mass-production, the values of effeffe are craftmanship and independence.
effeffe has always conceived its cars as exclusive creations. Each model is in regular production, crafted by the “Officine” in small series.
For perfect driving precision, the Berlinetta’s suspensions are adjustable for all wheel alignment (toe in, camber and caster). The weight of the car is contained lowest between the axles.
The aesthetic appeal of effeffe cars is more than meets the eye. It is also an expression of their mechanical perfection. Their designs outlive passing fashion trends and always project contemporary beauty.
When owners of an effeffe talk about their cars, they will tell stories about passion, emotion, and affection.
