303DF by Pininfarina





Cisitalia was an Italian sports and racing car brand. The name "Cisitalia" derives from "Compagnia Industriale Sportiva Italia", a business conglomerate founded in Turin in 1946 and controlled by the wealthy industrialist and sportsman Piero Dusio. The Cisitalia 202 GT of 1946 is well known in the world as a "rolling sculpture".

The following year Cisitalia introduced the hugely influential 202 Gran Sport Coupé which, with its elegant lines and integrated all-enveloping coachwork, set the pattern for every Gran Turismo that followed. Based on that first competition car, the 202 was expensive to produce, prompting the introduction of the 303 DF (DF standing for 'Derived from FIAT'), which used the FIAT 1100E chassis to cut costs. Even this was not enough to save Cisitalia, which had spent a fortune on its abortive Grand Prix car project, and production of the Tipo 303 ceased after approximately 12 had been made.
