The Cisitalia 202 was one of Europe’s first pontoon-bodied cars, and was the ancestor of the Gran Turismo-class luxury touring coupe.
In 1947 the Cisitalia 202 was presented at the Villa d’Este Coppa d’Oro in Como and then at the Paris Motor Show. At the same time as the roadsters, several coupe variants designed by Giovanni Savonuzzi were also on sale.
The first two examples of the Cisitalia 202 CMM, built in aluminium atelier Vignale, were aviation-style: they had elongated rear wings with streamlined tail fins and metal wheel flaps, four rectangular holes in the front wings, an oval grille in the form of a jet air intake, a V-shaped windscreen and a tapered sloping roof with an opening rear window.
Between 1947 and 1952 between 150 and 200 examples of the Cisitalia 202 were produced.
