This wonderful Stanguellini 1100 berlinetta Bertone is a very rare find. Discovered in Germany, but part of a large collection of cars belonging to a Russian investor and classic car collector. This car has it’s complete history of the former owners, and was ordered in 1951 by mr. Mario Torti in Milan (beloning to the Angelo family). The bodywork and the engine of this Stanguellini are in perfect shape and very original. All the original parts are there and they all function very well. This car is fast! Very fast! It is fitted with the Fiat 1100 engine with two webers and air filters made by Abarth. We think that the car is tuned by Carlo Abarth in that time. The Bertone bodied Fiat 1100 Stanguellini was a true sports tourer and it went in production in 1948. It was a major public succes in elegant society as well in its motto racing category. It participated off course in the Mille Miglia several times. The car introduced numerous innovative features, both on the structural and aesthetic fronts. The meeting between Nuccio Bertone and Vittorio Stanguellini gave birth to a succesful series of sports tourers derived from the Fiat 1100, as well as some Fiat 1500s and Lancia Aprillias. Designed by Luigi Rapi (Fiat 8V!), the 1100 Stanguellini introduced the “ponton”sides, that ran from the nose to the rear end of the car at belt-level. Its low weight of 725 kg helped the car to numerous motor sport successes during the period. The sound of the engine is fantastic! This car is eligible for the Mille Miglia and will be welcome entry. We are still working on its history at important sport events in its time.
