Fiat 1100 S
Launched on the market in 1947, the 1100 S sports berlinetta was the direct evolution of the pre-war 508 C MM. On the outside, its body was adapted to create an aerodynamic two-seater with a modified vertical blade grille and two additional air scoops under the headlights. The main innovation, however, was in the performance it was capable of achieving: 51 HP at 5200 rpm with a top speed of 150 km/h. Fast and modern, the new car was very successful on the race track and turned out perfect for the Mille Miglia: four 1100 S ended the race in 1947 in fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth place in the general ranking. The following year, the car took the third place in the general ranking and in 1949 it won the race in its category. The 1100 S remained in production until 1950 and 401 units were made in total.
