Cisitalia 505 DF (Ghia), 1953
Иллюстрации: Automobil Revue
Only 10 of the beautiful Cisitalia 505 DF's were built and the DF stood for "derived from Fiat".
In the early fifties, Cisitalia had developed excellent contacts worldwide with the best engineering companies and car designers. The new 505 was based on
an improved Fiat 1900 chassis and drivetrain and was considered as a very early example of pure personal luxury cars.
The stunningly clean design was in fact a compendium from ideas authored by Ghia Torino employed designers Michelotti, Boano father and Boano son and Savonuzzi and the designers from Virgil Exner's US studio.
Thunderbird, Riviera, Hawk, Grand Prix, Charger, Monte Carlo... you name all of them and they are unmistakingly present in the 505' spirit.
Presented at the 1953 Geneva salon this classy, sleek and elegant Cisitalia 505 coupé was the perfect car for the then-current Concours d'Elegance show circuit.
