Specially built for Felice Bonetto ?


No, designed by Bonetto. This is the only one car built by Vignale which Michelotti didn't design, there is also a very similar Alfa 1900C.

Out of my league, but this also seems to be a 1951 Vignale Aurelia?


Yes, this is the Ginevra coupè exhibited at the 1951 Geneva motor show.

In several sources, there is mentioned that its sibling, the Alfa Romeo 1900, is designed by Michelotti???

If you refer to Bonetto, I assume you mean the designer Rodolfo and not the racing driver Felice.

I can confirm you. I spoke with the Michelotti's son some times ago, his father never designed the Lancia and the Alfa by Vignale with 3 front lights.
The designer was Rodolfo Bonetto.

Those photos were taken at a dismantler nearby NY 45 years ago. I know the last owner, he tried to buy back the car, but unfortunately when he arrived in NY the car was already disappeared. It was one of the 5 one-off cabriolets based on the B52 chassis built by Vignale.

I would say Bertone...
1949 Aprilias by Vignale were a little different

Yes, this is the Fiat 500 sport hand-made by Bertone himself to race. The young Nuccio Bertone is behind the steering wheel.

Introduced at the 1956 Turin motor show during the launch of the Appia II series: the Gran lusso 2 doors sedan on the left and the Sport coupè on the right.
Allemano, Boano Pininfarina and Zagato introduced their models. I lost the traces about these cars, except for the Zagato.
