|Fiat 1100E Stanguellini Berlinetta by Bertone 1951 LHD|
Chassis n°: 346389.
Italian registration: VA 49845.
How nice to be able to find this very rare and attractive Stanguellini Berlinetta based on the popular Fiat 1100E chassis.
This elegant Berlinetta, modified by Stanguellini on the basis of the Fiat 1100 and coachbuilt by Bertone, is part of a very small series meant to be used as a Competition Berlinetta in the Gran Turismo class.
In the Stanguellini chapter from the book "La Sport" by authors Andrea Curami & Piero Vergnano one can see a photo from the start of the 1951 Coppa InterEuropa disputed in Monza where 2 identic Stanguellini Berlinettas take the lead.
The mechanical preparation by Stanguellini not only looks "the business" when opening the bonnet (nice Abarth inlet manifold with twin Solex carburettor set-up, fitted to an aluminium cylinderhead), but also on the road one notices immediatly the panache of this Berlinetta.
The aerodynamic lines and build quality of the Bertone body complement very nicely the sporty character of this thouroughbred Gran Turismo Berlinetta.
This very rare sportscar benefitted recently from a complete nut & bolt restoration. The general appearance inside-out and underneath is just immaculate. Whatever the future owners plans are (just for fun, participation at concours d'elegance contests, historic competition rallying -perfect Mille Miglia entry! -, etc...), one thing is for sure: this Fiat Stanguellini 1100 will get noticed!
Lots of assets for a very fair asking price of: 135.000 Euro
