You can see for yourself why the automotive critics were enthralled with this car, when Fiat presented it at the Paris Show in 1953. They were thrilled by the sophisticated “Supersonic” design and surprised the was a Fiat, better known for mass produced cars for the common man.
Here was a powerful sports car with advanced overhead-valve V8 engine, Siata-fabricated chassis and independent suspension.
Actually the car concept began as an Alfa Romeo. A gentleman driver from Switzerland asked Virgilio Conrero of Alfa to build a special car for the 1953 Mille Miglia. Conrero brought in his friend Giovanni Savonuzzi (the guy behind the Cisitalia design) who now headed Carrozzeria Ghia.
Savonuzzi created the *Supersonica* shape. Low waistline, long bonnet, low roof, rear lights mirroring a turbine jet engine, and a bold arrow that darts from above the front wheels across the length of the car.
When the Alfa version got damaged during the Mille Miglia, things were up in the air. But the design was still hot! So Ghia and Fiat partnered up, based in large part that Fiat had just come up with a V8 that provided jet-like thrust.
Acclaimed Ukraine modeler EMC has chosen to replicate this car universally celebrated for its design. Each version is in highest quality resin at 1:43 scale. Each version is limited to only 50 pieces.
