FIAT 508CMM

Coupé.

Prototype of the famous 1100S with lead-bronze bearings (ergo higher revlimit) and hc head giving 42bhp, a good recipe for 95mph on a 3.5 axle, plus nearly 40mpg at a steady 60. Some of Savio's bodies had stock grilles, others something like the post-war TB14 Alvis, only prettier. Rust and nil rearward vision are minus points.
