The Olympic torch was designed by Pininfarina, the same company that creates several high-end designs for clients such as Ferrari. The form of the torch, which was also used in that year's torch relay, is a sleek modern design that combines the shape of a ski and a mountain peak. Unfortunately, weighing in at five pounds, the torch was heavily criticized for being far too heavy.
