1954 Fiat 8V Supersonic Coupé by Ghia
Italian automobile designer, Ghia, produced a limited run of Fiat cars named ‘Supersonic’, with special ‘jet age’ bodywork. Only eight were completed, after mechanical issues ended the project. Several of the cars were purchased by Americans; some were heavily customized and received engine transplants. An original un-restored car sold at a Scottsdale, Arizona Gooding and Company auction in January 2011 with a gavel price of US $1.55 million ($1.7M including buyer’s premium).
