GHIA SUPERSONIC

GHIA SUPERSONIC

With a two-liter V8 engine, the Fiat 8V was introduced at the 1952 Geneva Auto Show designed to take-on competitors in the two-liter racing classes. Only 114 8Vs were built; those made by body-builder Ghia, and built on the 8V chassis, numbered just eight copies and were called "Supersonic" with the jet-craziness of the times in mind. This is an extremely rare example of an Italian automotive masterpiece and a great addition to any Concours.
