Description

French registration Engine 110F 000 - n°2581815 - Authentic Giannini 500, just 5000 made - Beautiful restoration in 2013, with the engine prepared After passing through the hands of only four owners, this Fiat Giannini was purchased in 2006 by its current user. In 2013, it was the subject of a restoration by the Giannini workshop in Rome: painted a midnight blue with burgundy inside. The mechanicals and the body were completely redone: the box is completely synchronized and the engine was prepared by the son of Claudio Tani, who was the Giannini preparer in Rome. The capacity was increased from 499 to 652cc, with forged pistons, a reinforced crankshaft and a big carburetor, the power reaches 50bhp and top speed is over 140 km/h: a real bomb indeed! The engine has covered 1,200km since its preparation and inside, the upholstery has been completely restored. It comes with beautiful and rare original Melber rims shod with Yokohama tyres. Accompanied by a certificate of identity from the ASI, this 500 TV ("Turismo Veloce") is the first sports model produced by Giannini to compete with Fiat-Abarth in the Italian championships. Cheerful and handy, it is more than worthy than its more famous competitor, this car promises pure driving pleasure.
