Pietro Frua began his career as a draftsman at Stabilimenti Farina when he was just 17 years old and moved up quickly at the age of 22 as Director if Styling.

His first styled car was a 1946 Fiat 1100c Spyder and from 1950 to 1957, he built 19 Spyders and 7 coupes in three different design series.

In 1963, at the age of 50 and at the peak of his career, Frua designed a range of cars for Glas, Germany’s smallest car-maker. This included the GT Coupé and Cabriolet as well as the larger V8-engined 2600, often called "Glaserati" for its likeness with Frua's Maserati-designs. These were built until 1968 as the BMW GT, after BMW had bought Glas.

He died of cancer in 1982
