Designed by Pinin Farina and Giovanni Savonuzzi
Cisitalia founder Piero Dusio gave the following instructions to his engineer Giovanni Savonuzzi: "I want a car that is wide like my Buick, low like a grand prix [racing car], comfortable like a Rolls-Royce, and light like our single-seater D46." The talented Savonuzzi sketched out the 202 coupe, and the project was then given to Pinin Farina. The production design was so well received that in 1951, only four years after first coming to market, the Cisitalia 202 entered the Museum of Modern Art. It remains part of MOMA's permanent collection.
