History[edit]

In 1947 Ilario Bandini, developed the project of a car that was suitable for everyday life but also to the races.

The prototype was fitted with an engine derived from a Fiat 1100 to which Bandini adapted cutting a head DOHC from Alfa Romeo 8-cylinder. The distribution, compulsorily amended as well as camshafts, it was a chain and gears.

The production of a small lot of this model provided by contrast, the use of engines and exchange Siata 1500 cc but, in fact, stopped a few examples.

This was the second Bandini to cross national boundaries. Tony Pompeo, importer italoamericano, bought one, at the end of 1940s, rigorously painted red, which led to New York City to run it in the category FM League SCCA (Sports Car Club of America).
