CISITALIA 33DF VOLORADENTE: DELAYING THE END
In 1954 Cisitalia attempted to continue the production of sports cars with the new 33DF Voloradente
The mid-1950s was a turbulent period for the Italian company Cisitalia, as it was facing a financial crisis.
To revive the fortunes of the historic car factory Carlo Dusio, son of the founder Piero Dusio, developed the heir of the iconic 202, the 33DF Voloradente.
Based on a ladder frame covered with an aluminium coupè bodywork, the car design was a work of Aldo Brovarone, former designer at Pininfarina.
The engine, a four-cylinder 1.1, was managed by a four-speed manual gearbox that allowed the car to reach the maximum speed of 170 km / h thanks to a power of 69 hp.
Produced in just over 7 specimens, it did not succeed in reviving the fortunes of the company which stopped shortly after producing cars concentrating on the creation of special bodyworks.
The Voloradente is simple and elegant and perhaps would have deserved more luck, but what do you think?
