Fiat 500 TV Giannini 1970 (H) White
This FIAT 500 incorporates various performance enhancing products made by Giannini. Founded in 1920 by the Giannini brothers - Attilio and Domenico - the company began tuning the little FIAT 500 Topolino in the 1930's and secured 12 world speed records with one of its modified cars.
In the early 1960s the original company closed, the brothers going their separate ways to found new enterprises. Attilio's new design company lasted only until 1971 but that founded by Domenico - Giannini Automobili SpA - survives today as part of the FIAT Group. In 1963 Giannini Automobili began modifying cars and selling tuning kits. That same year it introduced its own modified version of the baby FIAT - the 500TV - and throughout the decade and into the 1970's Giannini-tuned cars battled with those of its rival Abarth on the racetracks of Europe. In more recent years Giannini has specialised in the production of limited-edition versions of FIAT production models.
This highly collectible Giannini 500 TV (Turismo Veloce) was manufactured in February 1970 and first registered in July 1970 in Italy. After a high quality restoration, it has just been imported to the UK and we have just MOT'd and registered the car which now has the period number plate FAH 138H.
It is finished in its original colour scheme of White with Black trim and it is a 'matching numbers' car. The 499cc Engine has been rebuilt and it produces around 23 bhp at 5200 rpm thanks to the Giannini modifications which included a modified cylinder head and camshaft, special exhaust and a Weber carburettor.
The car is in A1 condition throughout and drives superbly and these little cars have now become very collectible and should therefore make an excellent future Investment!
