Fiat 1100 TV Trasformabile, 1955

Image ID:

Fiat 1100 TV Trasformabile at the the Cesana-Sestriere race, 1955. Introduced at the Geneva car show in March 1955, the Fiat 1100 TV Trasformabile is a charming two-seater spider designed by Fiat?s Sezione Carrozzerie Speciali directed by Fabio Luigi Rapi. Manufactured to suit the American style favoured at the time, it features chrome grilles, protruding bumpers, panoramic windscreen, fluted classic steering wheel, reclining two-colour seater and tyres with white bands. Endowed with the same mechanics as the 1100/103 TV (Turismo Veloce), it has a powered up engine for brilliant dynamic performance. Furthermore, thanks to its independent front wheel suspensions and stabilizing bar, it guarantees reliable hold and smooth driving. Given its performance, the Fiat 1100 TV Trasformabile has been often used for motor races, including the Mille Miglia. With only 142 cars manufactured, this vehicle is part of the FCA Heritage collection exhibited at the Centro Storico Fiat in Turin.
