Established in 1922 in Turin, Viberti built its reputation on an exceptionally complete and vaste production of both civilian and military transport vehicles, supplied, among the others, during the WWII to the Italian Armed Forces and to almost all transport companies that were starting regular service in Italy and abroad. A few years later, Officine Viberti forcefully became the Italian market leader in the construction of trailers and half-trailers and after the end of the WWII the company continued its growth until it achieved an absolute market leadership in Europe. In the fifties, the company also enters the market of two-wheelers under the brand Vi-Vi. But these were the boom years for the public transport in Europe and Viberti captured large parts of the market. One of the most interesting product of the late ‘50s was the Fiat-Viberti 2472 CGE, a model of articulated trolley buses. It was a 18 meters long with jointed-wire, four folding doors, manufactured by Fiat with bodywork by Viberti and electrical apparatus by CGE. In 1961, on the occasion of International Expo Italia '61, the Viberti built specifically for the ATM (the public transport company of Turin) 12 special bus with 2 floors and 3-axis. The cooperation with Fiat (now IVECO) constantly characterized the almost 80 years’ life of the historic brand Viberti. The company, now part of the group Acerbi-Viberti Spa, has two production plants for a total of 350,000 m². The largest of the two production sites located in Nichelino (TO), while the second is in Castelnuovo Scrivia (AL).

It's the Golden dolphin bus, realized by Viberti with the Monotral patented technology and equipped with a Fiat 400HP gas turbine and a hydro-mechanical rear wheels drive. The basic idea was to produce a luxury 18 seats commuter for the international touring or the fast travel connections. It had been introduced to the 1956 Geneva motor show.
