Then they has placed it wrong, this is one of the late Cisitalia, and the design was taken over by Abarth when he brought the rest cars from the Cisitalia estate

Yep. You're correct. The pictures show clearly that the car described as 1950 Abarth 205 Abarth Vignale Berlinetta is the car in question. Interesting background on the Cisitalia/Abarth transition.

NOPE, the car is not a Cisitalia, it's an Abarth 204/205 coupe bodied by Vignale...a "two-off"

Cool, so where do I find the other one? I'd probably donate minor organs for that car!

Another photo actually shows an engine with a head clearly showing 'Cisitalia' ...

This car was shown in the 2005 Concorso with the Alfa Romeo's, that is why I was confused. It is absoultley beautiful.

I'm quite sure that car was restored by Scott Emsley some time ago. That's Scott in the picture with the car. Beautiful car.
