Vignale was one of the most important Italian coachbuilders. Defined as "the man who sculpted steel", his success is owed to the designer Michelotti who collaborated with him until 1961. Appreciated by the Vip clientele who created unique Ferrari specimens, in the early 50s, Vignale , he widened his gaze towards the cars best known to the public to create special and unique versions in the "Vignale" style. So it was that after the release of one of the cars, intended for the middle class, the New Fiat 1100 103, Vignale also proposed on the sedan, his proposal, which could not be called anything else other than "Elite", which was well identify the customer target to which this car was intended. Three series of Elite were made, one different for each year: '55 '56 and '57 (which was actually built on the new 103 D). So always designed by the inexhaustible Michelotti, which we recognize for the particular rear tail (which is not that of TV, so to speak), the '56 version has some unique features such as: The front mask, important, with incorporated two fog lamps, which takes us back to more prestigious cars (Ferrari 212 Inter Vignale ed.). The rear tail with a wave above the line of the rear fins reminiscent of the shapes of some American cars. The specific aluminum side trims for the car. The larger rear window. In the trunk compartment we find the spare wheel under the carpet and the fuel nozzle no longer outside but inside the trunk. The backrest folds back to give more space if you need to load special items. It is said that Michelotti had thought of paintings or works of art (editor's note) Naturally, the livery of the two-colored metallics immediately customized these creations, separating them from the standard production cars.

In this case, the first owner, was a textile entrepreneur of Biella (then part of the province of Vercelli), who at 35 years wanted to stand out with an agile but unique car, in fact "Elite".
It seems that falling in love occurred at the Turin Motor Show in 1956, which took place in spring from April 21st to May 2nd and the decision was almost impromptu, so much so that a car belonging to the last 1636 chassis of 1100 103 was chosen ( between Bauletto and TV first series) and registered on June 5, 1956 (frame 255364). In fact from the 257000 frame the second series of the 103 called 103 E will come into production. The vehicle is a matching number, mostly preserved with original plates and documents. Anti-theft Bloster of the time, prepared for connecting mobile phones and / or navigator. The car has always been kept running and is equipped with an electric petrol pump and is in order with the periodic revision until January 2020. Change and new clutch. No suspension noise, differential ... A show! It is not a TV, but being a 103 of 1956 can aspire to be registered with the Historical Mille Miglia. The production numbers of this Elite Vignale are not known. What we know is that you can hardly find another one, at a gathering like this. A car for many, but not for all ... Precisely "d'Elite".
