BIANCHI S8

Saloon, sports saloon, limousine, various specials.

Looks immensely classic, especially the short-wheelbase 'sports' model (1933-34). Apart from a dry sump system fed by twin pumps, it's pretty conventional, with five mains, semi-elliptic springs, mechanical pump feed, and mechanical brakes. Some pretty English bodies listed, but top speed always in the low 70s. No recent reports of survivors.
