Fiat – 1100 B Vignale
This Fiat 1100 B was produced in a limited series and few specimens (two, perhaps three) in 1948. The car was built by Carrozzeria Vignale starting from a Fiat 1100 B chassis and designed by Giovanni Michelotti. Unveiled at the Salone Internazionale dell’Automobile di Torino in 1948 it was built largely in aluminium, excluding the front. Like all the great coachbuilders of the time, Vignale participated in concourse d’elegance: a personal showcase, thanks to prestige, visibility and prizes. Advertisements and articles of the era report that this car was awarded in both big and small concourse d’elegance: the 1100 B by Vignale was a winner at the Gran Premio d’Europa at Juan Les Pin, Gran Premio di Firenze, Gran Premio di Alassio.
