Three special “Corsa” coupes have been prepared by Cisitalia for the Mille Miglia and Targa Florio races in 1948. Dante Giacosa, who helped Piero Dusio start Cisitalia, states in his autobiography “I miei 40 anni di progettazione alla Fiat” that these cars were the prototypes of the later 202 coupe, and built by Stabilimenti Farina. These early cars have a chassis tag that reads “TIPO D46 SPORT,” being an evolution of the D46 “monoposto” racing cars to “biposto” configuration. After production increased, the tags were changed to “TIPO 202” on the later coupes.
We'll tell the story of this model on the occasion of its anniversary or when it will reach a sufficient number of cars.
