It all started when Mr. Mahindra tweeted about the Maserati Birdcage, a concept car by Italian car design firm Pininfarina. The Tweet read ‘One cage I wouldn’t mind being imprisoned in. Pininfarina sustains its legendary & pathbreaking designs’. Another Twitter user by the name Siddhant Khanna replied to the tweet that read ‘What stops you from buying it? Go for it’
The Maserati Birdcage Concept
What came as a response to the user was nothing less than a surprise, something that not many people, just like this Twitter user, didn’t know about. Mr. Mahindra tweeted in response ‘We bought the company instead (Pininfarina)’. For those of you who do not know, Mahindra & Mahindra acquired a controlling stake in the Italian car design firm in December 2015.
We bought the company instead…(Pininfarina) 😊 https://t.co/beNzPTLN9t

Pininfarina is not the only firm that the Indian automobile manufacturer owns though. The company also owns a few more brands such as Ssangyong, BSA, Jawa and the scooter unit of PSA/Peugeot-Citroen. What do you think of this episode? Let us know through the comments section below.
