description
This sports-racing car is absolutely typical of Italy's entirely charming and engaging Fiat-based racing specials that were produced in very considerable quantity both before and after the Second World War. In relative terms the Italian motor sporting community was huge during the 1930s and '40s, including numerous small-time motor engineers, garage owners and simply enthusiastic amateur special-builders. In the contemporary Fiat 750 and 1100 cc production passenger cars they had a readily available and affordable reservoir of chassis, running gear, engine and transmission parts with which to weave their craftsman magic. The Fiat 1100 engine was particularly responsive to relatively simple modification and tuning, while some specialists actually went far beyond that, even to the extent of casting special cylinder heads and sometimes blocks to accept Fiat internals.

This particular car was based upon a Fiat chassis before Italy entered the global conflict in 1940. The car was sold by the Italian Ministry of Defence in 1948. The chassis is believed to have been modified by Stanguellini. The car was bodied by Carrozzeria Motto, shape, design and style are in fact very similar to the Cisitalia Spyder bodied by Rocco Motto in that period.
The car raced the 1948 MM with the number 395 and the team Achille Pedretti – Giuseppe Alessio.
