Dagrada-Giannini Fiat 750 Sport 1949 LHD This typical siluro sportscar was, as were many Italian etceterini sportscars in those years, in 1949 derived from the Fiat Topolino by Angelo Dagrada. Power came from a Giannini engine which was developped just a little bit more by fitting a Siata cylinderhead. Giannini had proven to be the king in this 750 category by establishing with a Giannini, a very similar Topolino derivate as this Dagrada, a new record in this category during the 1949 Mille Miglia (average speed of 94 Km/h during 1.600 Km between Brescia and Rome and back to Brescia again. Over the Apenines along the roads of the immediate postwar Italy!). Mr. Dagrada owned this sportscar himself and tested his creation first at the 1949 Tre Ponti event in Teolo, where he obtained 1-st in class. Some months later he sold this well sorted sportscar to the famous WWII aviation heroe Franco Bordoni, who entered his new racing car into the: - 1949 Susa Moncenisio (7-th in his category) - 1950 Mille Miglia. - 1950 Coppa Toscana - 1950 Parma Poggio - 1950 Circuito Collemaggio in LAquila - 1951 Circuito Citta di Castello in Teramo (1-st in his category). - 1951 Gran Premio Pietro Cidonio in LAquila - 1951 Circuito Ascoli Piceno - 1951 Gran Premio Circuito di Modena - 1952 Circuito di Senigallia - 1953 Varese Campo dei Fiori (3-rd in his category) In 1962 this Dagrada-Giannini changed hands once again and from then during 50 years no more... In 2013 the specialist classic car workshop Strada & Corsa in Holland took care of the preparation for this years Mille Miglia to which this historic Mille Miglia car was immediately accepted. This Dagrada-Giannini didnt miss a beat and brought pilot and co-pilot safe from Brescia to Rome and back. Interested to experience the Mille Miglia in 2014 yourself?
