Fiat 1100-103 Coupé Allemano

The Fiat 1100 TV Coupé Allemano designed by Michelotti.

Vehicle Overview

The Fiat 1100 TV Coupé by Allemano, unveiled at the 1953 Turin Auto Show, is a remarkable example of mid-century Italian automotive design. This special model, based on the Fiat Nuova 1100, was crafted by Carrozzeria Allemano and featured a distinctive design by Giovanni Michelotti. One of the standout features of the car was its ‘shark-nose’ split grille, which later inspired Giorgetto Giugiaro’s iconic design for the Ferrari 250 GT SWB Bertone coupe. Michelotti’s design garnered significant attention and acclaim, with numerous articles highlighting the innovative and stylish elements of the Fiat 1100 TV Coupé. Following its debut at the Turin Auto Show, Serafino Allemano showcased the cabriolet version at the 7th Concorso d’Eleganza in Cortina d’Ampezzo. The car’s design excellence was recognized, winning the first-in-class prize, a testament to its exceptional aesthetic and craftsmanship. During 1953, Allemano built a limited number of these bespoke vehicles: two coupes and five cabriolets. Despite the small production run, the Fiat 1100 TV Coupé and its cabriolet counterpart left a lasting impact on automotive design. Today, only one coupe and two cabriolets are known to exist, making them highly sought-after by collectors and enthusiasts. The Fiat 1100 TV Coupé by Allemano represents a fusion of Italian design elegance and engineering precision. Michelotti’s visionary approach, combined with Allemano’s skilled craftsmanship, resulted in a car that not only stood out in its era but also influenced future automotive designs. The car’s success at the Concorso d’Eleganza and its enduring legacy highlight the significance of this collaboration in the history of automotive design. This rare model continues to captivate the imagination of car enthusiasts, embodying the spirit of innovation and excellence that defined Italian coachbuilding in the 1950s. Its limited production and surviving examples make it a treasured piece of automotive history.
