Introduction



Any car design that obtains the honour of being displayed at the New York Musuem of Modern Art is surely the penultimate in collectable cars.

For the time, the Cisitalia could obtain incredibly high end speeds from a relatively small capacity engine (a donor Fiat 1100 engine producing 50bhp).

This was mostly due to the wonderful aerodynamics of the car. Variants of the design were made by Vignale, Frua, Stabilmenti Farina and Pinninfarina.

A short lived marque in automotive history, Cisitalia was facing bankruptcy in 1949 after plans to develop a Porsche-designed grand prix car.

Piere Dusio, the founder of the company, migrated to Argentina and it was only the creditors able to keep the company afloat until its ultimate demise in 1965.
