Daina Sport 1,8 litre by Bertone





Siata (Societa Italiana Auto Trasformazioni Accessori in English Italian Car Transformation Accessories Company), was an Italian car tuning shop and manufacturer founded in 1926 by amateur race car driver Giorgio Ambrosini.

Siata initially sold performance parts to modify and tune cars manufactured by Fiat. After World War II, the company began making its own sports cars under the Siata brand until its eventual bankruptcy following the first Arab oil embargo in the mid-1970s.

The Daina two-passenger coupe and cabriolet, introduced in 1950, was the largest of those, using a steel box-section frame. The Dainas used the suspension, steering, and drivetrain of the popular Fiat 1400, along with its overhead-valve engine. The Gran Sport, introduced at Geneva in 1952, featured steel coachwork by Stabilimenti Farina with an aluminum hood. However, when Stabilimenti Farina closed its doors the following year, production of the coupe, convertible, and Gran Sport ceased. Production of the Daina was then handed over to Bertone, who built their own version of the coupe, called the Sport. Regardless, the lightweight and agile handling of the Dainas made both versions attractive for competition in both Europe and the United States. No more than 50 were built—perhaps as few as 30.
