Fiat 6C 1500 Superleggera
The Fiat 6C 1500 Superleggera. Born from the wind. –
Stories, form and feeling. That’s what Giovanni was doing right from the start of Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino. And those spirited Italians, after all, can do that very well. Thus was born the Fiat 6C 1500 Berlinetta. One of the first production cars ever made in a wind tunnel. It was presented in 1935 together with other members of the 1500 branch at the Paris Motor Show.
The name 1500 refers to the engine; they are powered by the same engine block, a 1493 cc six-in-line with a partially synchronized four-speed gearbox attached. End result? Silky smooth and for a 1.5, lots of fun! It relaxes, has a sporty edge and breathes craftsmanship.
Our 6C has a fantastic all-aluminium body, provided by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera. Everything was shaped by hand and every body had slightly different shapes or characteristics. So you could say that ours is completely unique. Her crest contrasts beautifully with the split windscreen and the elegant curves. She was registered at Registro FIAT Italiano under the number 919 in 1993. She was christened a “gold standard” by ASI and admitted by the Mille Miglia to the select company . Italian heritage, ready to be enclosed in an enthusiast’s heart. Will we see you soon?
Form and Function meet. They begin a torrid affair. –
