It's the 1946 Cisitalia 202 CMM 1.1-litre - the car that allowed Vignale to set up his own carrozzeria

When Giovanni Savonuzzi designed the Cisitalia 202 CMM (Coupe Mille Miglia), he had in mind the fighters of the '40s. In 1946 he built a model two feet long, he sprinkles it with oil burned to mark the flow aerodynamic and takes it to the wind tunnel of Politecnico di Torino.
Vignale, then, simply follows the instructions to the letter of Savonuzzi, which also decides the color of the prototype: red, in honor of the red arrow of the Mille Miglia. But the participation wasn't lucky, Piero Taruffi withdraws before Cattolica, when fourth overall. The second attempt is a year later with a silver 202, which has no air vents on the roof (changed to improve the aerodynamics), side vent grilles are no more oval, but rectangular and a improved 1200cc engine . The Cisitalia 202 CMM red switch to a Roman driver that driving in some minor races and then sold to an american collector.
This car back to Italy in the late seventies, was restored in Turin and sold to a passionate in Venezuela. Forty years later, in the wind tunnel, the 202 CMM shows a Cx of 0.29, a specific exception for a car at the time.Now is owned by a japanese collector, who uses it in recalling events.
Traveling with this car is an adventure. Savonuzzi not worried comfort: inside is a terrible heat, tempered only by two holes with a flip open roof and sliding windows. The noise is very strong because, obviously, in 1946 not taken any precaution noise. Then there are the vibrations, because to save on weight isn't mounted any seal that is not absolutely necessary. In return, the car has a weight of 680 Kg only, 50 Kg less than the Cisitalia Nuvolari spyder, a result achieved thanks mainly to the bodywork and the frame of aluminum tubes from the aeronautics industry.
Discomfort, heat, pain, but an unquenchable charm. "I remember the thrill of Savonuzzi in Turin in front of this car, before the restoration," said Nino Balestra, that day is there in the company of Carlo Dusio, son of Pietro, founder of the Cisitalia: "The car was complete, the original engine was on the floor, to be reviewed. The damage had been done to the fins, the most distinctive part of the car, cut and who knows when for some reason. Savonuzzi watched the stumps in silence, then took a piece of cardboard and redesigned the fins free hand, so a craftsman could rebuild them faithfully. "

I didn't know the Cassone was still alive, although with some modifications.
Here two period pics from 1947 Mille Miglia.

The Box Berlinetta startet a Cisitalia D-46 and was later converted to the 202 Prototype with Vignale Body. Then rebodied as Spider and under Japanese ownership, a new Cassone Body was built.

Just to make clear something: the ing. Savonuzzi designed all the 202MM berlinetta. Motto bodied the first, which raced in the 1947 1000miglia, and Vignale the others (with the fintails).
