History

The Fiat 1500 was a six-cylinder car produced by Fiat from 1935 to 1950. The streamlined styling had an aerodynamic efficiency that was never achieved before in a touring car. It was introduced at the Salone dell'automobile di Milano (Milan Motor Show) in 1935. For the first time on a Fiat, there were independent Dubonnet suspensions at the front.
