When a brand creates a unique car in a moment of time, this, with time ends up becoming a work of art. The model that we bring to you today is, perhaps, the model is most unlikely that Fiat has manufactured ever. The Stanguellini was a one-off that the firm produced in Italy, but rather to premiere in Europe, presented it at the motor show in Buenos Aires.
The full name of this work of art is Fiat Stanguellini 1200 Spider America and it was manufactured in the distant past of 1957. From the beginning it was conceived as a vehicle unique and unrepeatable as evidenced by its design and technical features (as denoted their chassis number 121166 and mechanical 121670). As we have already said, he made his debut in public on the ill-fated Car show in Buenos Aires and its design left half the world with the mouth open.
The reason of such a surprise is because lines similar to those of a flying saucer. In it, the designers of the firm laid out how they could be the cars of the future, which at that time could have imagined. Its designer was the fantastic Franco Scaglione creator of masterpieces as the Maserati 3500 GT coupé Bertone or the Apollo GT.
After the presentation of this model, stayed permanently in the country. The reason is that the problems I had with the customs amounted to much the cost of transportation. For this reason, firms decided that once exposed to the models were sold to customers in the country and subsequently donated the money to charity. The Fiat Stanguellini 1200 Spider America was no stranger to this situation and was sold to the highest bidder.
the life of The model after its sale in Buenos Aires was spent between halls of classic cars and visits to exhibitions such as the Contest of Elegance of Pebble Beach. However, his leap to the news is that the current owner of the model has decided to put it to auction using the signature RM Acutions Sothebys in Amelia Island (united States).
The price that could reach in this event could be around three hundred or four hundred thousand dollars. Will have to see what is your final price and the new destination of this impressive car.
