FIAT mod. Zero

(Italia 1912)

The Zero was the first Fiat runabout. More than 2000 were manufactured in a torpedo and a spider version between 1912 and 1915. The coachwork with its simple, rugged and reliable mechanicals was devised by the Farina works with the direct involvement of Giovanni Battista Farina (1893 – 1966), who eventually incorporated his nickname “Pinin” into the new family name Pininfarina. The price of the torpedo (8.000 lire) was a real bargain in those days.
