Turin, Italy – Hidden inside the heart of Mirafiori is the historical Fiat output plant, FCA Heritage. The section that discounts with interaction and promotions of FCAs activities on the background of the Group’s makes, launched the Heritage Hub exhibition.

Located in the initial building developed in the mid-1960s to home mechanical workshops devoted to the manufacturing of transmission components, the exhibition handles 15,000 m2 of space showcasing around 250 motor vehicles made by the Fiat, Lancia and Abarth models, some of them never ever viewed in community prior to. And trust me, there are few pieces that basically never ever remaining the R&D section.

Amongst all these autos, 64 are shown in eight “transversal” theme regions, every single of which consists of 8 designs from diverse manufacturers and intervals:

  •  Small and Harmless: homes a variety of models that mixed greatest protection with minimum amount dimensions. In this area you will locate some early but initial automotive study for enhanced driving basic safety like the Fiat City Taxi (1968), a car or truck for public use with an unconventional asymmetrical lateral flank, and the ESV 1500 and ESV 2000 products, both of those specially made to review basic safety and resistance in the celebration of a collision. (rubber was nevertheless regarded the very best security in a collision).

  • Eco and Sustainable: Right here you will obtain exciting concept scientific tests centered on reduced intake or low emissions. Some examples are the 1999 Fiat Ecobasic outfitted with an impressive a 1.2 diesel engine or the Fiat Panda Aria (“Air”) demonstrating off some extravagant polycarbonate transparent physique panels but outfitted with a very effective and clean dual gasoline (ethanol+hydrogen) 900cc 2 cylinder engine.
  • Style Marks: exhibits a collection of “milestones” that remaining their visible mark on the background of motorcar style.
  • Archistars: eight technical masterpieces that released important improvements in motorcar architecture, in terms of performance and manufacture like the Fiat 500 Topolino A designed by Dante Giacosa to the 600 – the spouse and children car or truck par excellence in the several years of the Italian economic boom and up to the Fiat Panda and Uno, two of the most crucial present day utility successes.
  • Concepts and “fuoriserie”: distinctive collection and extremely-scarce versions, some exceptional just one-offs, some utopian dreams. This thematic island therefore offers some incredibly diverse examples but two vehicle definitively acquired my awareness: the Abarth 2400 Coupé Alemanno by Carlo Abarth (his pretty private car or truck) and the precious Lancia Flaminia Coupé Loraymo
  • Documents and Races: the famous racing cars and trucks with the most prestigious triumphs, file-breakers and heroes. Sure here all over again Lancia still left its marks, on the Tarmac this time, with two Endurance race champions: the Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo and the LC2. A further car that worth mentioning is the Fiat Abarth 750 Document that in ’56, on Monza circuit, set the history above the 24-hour length but also collected other 5 records in the adhering to times on the 5,000 km, 5,000 miles and 10,000 km length and 48 hrs and 72 hours length.

Remarkable time vacation, no question! But a large question come up now, can I take a look at this location? Very well not at the moment… We haven’t been knowledgeable about an correct day however, but there is a superior possibility the museum will be open up to the general public quickly and all the concealed goodness will be shared with all FCA manufacturers fanatics.
