Footnotes

  • Premiered at the Paris Salon in 1953, the 'TV' (Turismo Veloce) was the higher-performance version of the newly introduced FIAT 1100 Berlina (saloon). Introduced at the Geneva Salon earlier that same year, the 1100/103 featured unitary construction of the body/chassis and was powered by an entirely new 1,089cc overhead-valve four-cylinder engine. Saloon and station wagon models were offered. For the Turismo Veloce, power was raised from 36 to 50bhp, giving the TV a top speed of 135km/h. A single spot lamp on the centre of the radiator grille was a distinguishing feature of the TV, which featured additional exterior chrome trim and could be ordered with two-tone paintwork. A trasformabile (convertible) TV was added to the range in 1955. The TV was raced extensively by FIAT's more sporting customers, its most prestigious victories including class wins at the Mille Miglia in 1954 and 1955.

    Carrozzeria Pininfarina offered its own two-door coupé on the 1100 TV platform. The car was first displayed at the 1953 Paris Salon, and the famed Italian coachbuilder would go on to build some 780 examples over the next three years. From around 1955 Pininfarina's graceful and well proportioned TV coupé featured a wraparound rear window (as seen on this example) similar to that found on some of the Carrozzeria's Ferraris of the time.

    This charming little coachbuilt FIAT was purchased circa 2000 in the USA by rally driver and motoring enthusiast, Roberto Vanarelli. According to information obtained by Mr Vanarelli from the FIAT Registry, this car is (possibly) the 14th of the 2nd series. Mr Vanarelli kept the FIAT for a short while before selling it to collector Giovanni Clemente (deceased four years ago) and the car then passed (in 2009) to an Italian Army general in Treviso. It then went back to the USA and recently arrived in Switzerland in the hands of the current owner. Described by the vendor as in generally good condition, the car is offered with a US Title and a Swiss 13.20 document. Importantly, the Pininfarina 1100 TV coupé is eligible for the Mille Miglia and thus represents a relatively inexpensive means of participation in this prestigious historic event.

    Please note this motor car is subject to the reduced local import tax should it remains in the EU.

    Bonhams is the guarantor of the customs duties and taxes clearance: consequently, this motor car cannot be released to the buyer or his transporter immediately after the sale.

    •Une des 780 voitures construites
    •Anciennement dans la Collection Giovanni Clemente
    •Éligible à la Mille Miglia

    Dévoilée au Salon de Paris 1953, la « TV » (Turismo Veloce) était la version à haute performance de Fiat 1100 Berlina récemment lancée. Introduite au Salon de Genève plus tôt dans l'année, la 1100/103 se distinguait par sa structure monocoque et son tout nouveau moteur culbuté à quatre cylindres de 1 089 cm3. La nouvelle Fiat était offerte en berline et en break. Pour la Turismo Veloce, la puissance portée de 36 à 50 ch permettait une vitesse maximale de 135 km/h. Un unique phare à longue portée placé au centre de la calandre distinguait la TV dotée par ailleurs d'ornements chromés additionnels et disponible en deux tons. Une TV transformabile (décapotable) fut ajoutée à la gamme en 1955. La TV fut très utilisée en compétition par les clients les plus sportifs de Fiat, ses plus prestigieuses victoires comprenant des premières places de catégorie aux Mille Miglia 1954 et 1955.

    Carrozzeria Pinifarina proposa sa propre version coupé deux portes sur la plate-forme de la 1100 TV. La voiture fut exposée pour la première fois au Salon de Paris 1953 et le réputé carrossier italien allait en produire environ 780 exemplaires en trois ans. Vers 1955, le coupé TV de Pininfarina élégant et bien proportionné reçut une glace arrière enveloppante (comme sur cette voiture) semblable à celle qui équipait certaines Ferrari de la Carrozzeria à l'époque.

    Cette charmante Fiat hors-série fut achetée vers 2000 aux états-Unis par le pilote de rallye et amateur d'automobile Roberto Vanarelli. Selon des informations obtenues par M. Vanarelli du Registre Fiat, cette voiture est probablement la 14e de la deuxième série. M. Vanarelli ne conserva pas longtemps cette Fiat et la céda au collectionneur Giovanni Clemente (décédé il y a quatre ans) et la voiture passa en 2009 aux mains d'un général italien à Trévise. Elle repartit aux états-Unis et revint en Suisse récemment aux mains du propriétaire actuel.

    Décrite par le vendeur comme étant en bon état général, la voiture est accompagnée de son titre de circulation américain et du document suisse 13.20. Point important : le coupé 1100 TV Pininfarina est éligible à la Mille Miglia et représente un moyen relativement abordable de participation à cette prestigieuse épreuve historique.

    Veuillez noter que si cette voiture reste dans la Communauté Européenne elle sera soumise à une taxe d'importation au taux réduit de la TVA à l'importation locale.

    Bonhams restant le garant des droits et taxes douanières, cette voiture ne pourra donc pas être récupérée par l'acheteur ou son transporteur immédiatement après la vente.
