We are all used to thinking of Italian cars in the “Sport” category as well as beautiful barchettas built specifically for racing: this is partly true.
The part that is not true, or at least not always true, is that these cars are all beautiful. The primary objective of these cars was to win races whatever it takes (within the regulations, of course), often sacrificing the aesthetic aspect as is evident in the case of this Fiat 1100 BLT built, immediately after the Second World War, by the brothers Aldo and Piero Benedetti from Florence, Italy.
We say exactly what the seller claims because we cannot confirm or deny the history of this car that we see for the first time (being a unique specimen, it does not surprise us at all); it is still in the process of being restored (almost completed) and it seems that between the end of the 40s and the beginning of the 50s it competed obtaining also good results.
