The Fiat 1100 TV Boano Coupé designed by Michelotti.

Vehicle Overview

The Fiat 1100 TV Boano is a rare and distinguished example of mid-20th-century Italian automotive design. This particular model features a handmade aluminium body, steel doors, and a perspex rear window, showcasing the craftsmanship and innovative materials used during its creation. The car was designed by Giovanni Michelotti, a notable figure in automotive design, and it stands as the only remaining known example of the 10 cars produced, making it exceptionally rare. Under the hood, the Fiat 1100 TV Boano is powered by a 1247 cc engine, which was finely tuned by Giannini Automobili S.p.a., a renowned tuner based in Rome, Italy. This tuning increased the engine’s output to 65 horsepower, a significant enhancement for its time. Originally priced at 1,600,000 Lire in 1956, this car represents a significant investment in luxury and performance. Felice Mario Boano, a master coachbuilder, played a crucial role in the creation of this vehicle. Between 1955 and 1957, after his tenure at Ghia and before he joined Centro Stile Fiat, Boano founded his own company, Boano Lavorazioni Speciali. During this period, Boano produced several unique and iconic cars, including the Ferrari 250 low roof, Abarth 208 A, Lincoln Indianapolis, and the Boano Nardi Corsair. Among these masterpieces, the Fiat 1100 TV Boano stands out as a particularly exquisite model, built on the Fiat 1100/103 TV chassis. This car remained in Italy until 2014, when it was fully restored during 2013 and 2014, ensuring that its historical and aesthetic value was preserved. The restoration process likely involved meticulous attention to detail to maintain its original specifications and design features. This restoration, combined with its rarity and historical significance, makes the Fiat 1100 TV Coupé Boano a highly valuable and cherished collector’s item in the world of classic automobiles.
