1947 Cisitalia 202 Coupe By Pinin Farina

Consorzio Industriale Sportiva Italia (Cisitalia) was one of many small Italian firms that built specialty sports cars on Fiat parts during the immediate postwar period. After its successful one-seat racing cars, the firm introduced the road-going 1947 Cisitalia 202 Coupe, a Pinin Farina-designed grand touring fastback with a modified Fiat engine.

Considered one of the most attractive cars ever built for its taut lines and graceful proportions, it was featured in MoMA’s 1951 exhibition 8 Automobiles, which helped establish automobile coachwork as a legitimate art form akin to sculpture.
