Description

The Fiat Tipo 2, also known as the 15-20 HP was produced between 1910 and 1920 and was based on the previous successful Tipo 1 design. In total 10.000 examples were made in two separate series (1A and 2B) making it the most successful Fiat model of the 1910's.
Moved by a robust 2612cc inline 4 engine producing 20 horsepower capable of reaching a top speed of 70 kph, it was the first car ever used in a conflict, due to the fact that it was adopted by the Italian Royal Army in the Italo-Turkish war of 1911-1912. The initial asking price for the Tipo 2 was 18.000 lire, which was delivered from the Factory as a rolling chassis, already fitted to the mechanical parts.
The second series, the 2B produced 28 hp thanks to its bored out engine, totalling in 2815cc in total displacement and was capable of reaching a 75 kph top speed. The first generation, the 1A is the rarest as it was produced only in the first year of production, where a total of 908 were made.
