In the mid-90s, the firm "Partner für Fahrzeugausstattung" (PFA) developed a new concept for exhibition cars. These cars provide more than just a large space. They also have a high degree of quiet running, comfortable air conditioning, good acoustics, and connections for working equipment. The first of these cars was leased for a representative exhibition of a major manufacturer of pianos and was painted in the world famous design of the firm. Experienced pianists and up-and-coming artists presented the valuable instruments at events in several large cities.
