Fiat – 1500 B Berlinetta Touring

The Fiat 1500 was a six-cylinder car produced by Fiat from 1935 to 1950. It was one of the first cars tested in a wind tunnel. The sleek style allowed an aerodynamic efficiency unique in a touring car and disproved the idea that aerodynamic vehicles would not sell well. 

Vehicle Overview

Between 1935 and 1948, Touring built the 6C Berlinetta Superleggera on FIAT 1500, FIAT 1500 B, C and D chassis. According to Carlo Felice Bianchi Anderloni and Angelo Tito Anselmi’s Touring Superleggera: Giant Among Italian Coachbuilders, several prototypes for the Fiat 1500 Touring Berlinetta were produced, but the limited run of cars produced resulted in combining the trim and design details of all of them. However, the basic shape remained the same: a fluid, elegant coupé, along with the lines of Touring Berlinetta’s grand design for the Alfa Romeo 6C. Fewer than a dozen survived.
