An extremely unique and distinctive design by Giovanni Michelotti, built by Vignale and based on the famous Fiat 8V. Michelotti demonstrated his creativity and inventiveness with this one-off Démon Rouge (Red Devil) at the Turin motor show in 1953.
The semi-circular, vertical rear window under the extended roofline is one of the most striking details. It was an aerodynamic trick intended to keep the rear window clean and dry during heavy rainfall. The roof itself is largely made of Plexiglas, to give the impression of an open car. (carstyling.ru)
