The 208 S is a model of automobile manufactured by SIATA between 1952 and 1954.
Launched in 1952, the 208 Sport had a sporty lightweight bodywork of spider design, crafted from aluminum which wasdesigned by Giovanni Michelotti (Bertone). Mechanically derived in part from the Fiat 8V, with whom it shared the powerful V8 engine at 70° of two liters of displacement, which developed 140 hp. The power allowed her to reach 200 km/h.
The engine was housed in a tubular steel frame. Unfortunately, the high price (5400 U.S. dollars) decreed failure despite the cars talents.
Only 56 cars were made.

The Siata 300BC Barchetta Sport Spider was a car manufactured between 1951 and 1954.
The ravishingly beautiful racing body was designed by Mario Revelli de Beaumont and built by Nuccio Bertone.
The cars were fitted with a 750cc or 1000cc Crosley engine. Some were fitted with 1100cc Fiat engines.
Only about 40 cars were produced, of which approximately 25 are known to have survived.
The Siata Amica was the company’s first production model being produced between 1948 and 1952.
It was powered by a Fiat 500cc engine capable of producing 22 horsepower. A 750cc unit was also available, raising horsepower slightly, to 25. Production of the Amica began in 1948 and continued through 1952. There were two bodystyles available, a two-seater convertible/spider and a coupe.
In 1948, a specially prepared Amica won the Italian Championship. The car was outfitted with an engine that produced a little over 40 horsepower and was mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
