A not very well known treasure: Fiat 8V.

Jan 07, 2022,17:08 PM
 

This car was unveiled in 1952 / 1953. Designed by Fiat, but also by Ghia and Zagato, it has a lot of charm, not to say personality. 












The interior also has a lot of personality. 





The dashboard is original, almost futuristic...



A small 8 Cylinders ( 2 liters ) , hence the name 8 VU, gives life to this car. 

Less than 120 were made. I never saw one on the road. 

Enjoy.

they don’t make these kind of cars anymore that evoke emotion (and lots of it).

Sigh.

...so much style. Makes me want to be a really rich guy tooling around the French/Italian Riviera circa 1960. Wearing a white suit and smoking an unfiltered cigarette, of course : )

Or Cerruti. ;)

You have great taste Amanico. You're always showing us the best classic cars. And the best future classic cars.

Very sensuous, for sure.
