Fiat 850 Dart

Fiat 850 Dart by Vignale: the baby Miura

Vehicle Overview

The Fiat 850 Dart emerged onto the automotive scene in 1969, courtesy of Carrozzeria Vignale, debuting at the prestigious Turin Motor Show. Designed under the creative direction of Virginio Vairo, its aesthetic bore striking resemblances to the iconic Lamborghini Miura, reflecting a deliberate attempt, perhaps by Alfredo Vignale, to capitalize on the wave of success generated by the Miura. Crafted atop the Fiat 850 platform, the Dart was envisioned as a compact sports car, poised to capture the hearts of enthusiasts with its sleek design and spirited performance. However, despite its promising debut, the Dart failed to gain traction in the market, ultimately remaining a solitary creation. While the Dart may not have achieved commercial success, its significance lies in its status as a unique and captivating example of automotive design. The fusion of Italian craftsmanship and innovative styling cues borrowed from the Miura contributed to its allure, making it a noteworthy footnote in automotive history. Today, the Fiat 850 Dart stands as a testament to the creative vision and ingenuity of Carrozzeria Vignale, serving as a reminder of the bold experimentation and pursuit of excellence that defined the golden era of Italian automotive design. Though it may have been a fleeting presence on the roads, its legacy endures as a symbol of innovation and aspiration in the world of automotive design.
