Cette exceptionnelle voiture à moteur électrique date de 1958. Dessinée par Giovanni Michelotti et conçue par SILA (Turin), elle utilise des matériaux et des technologies jusqu’alors peu ou pas développés sur des jouets… 2 places côte à côte, copie réduite de la Ferrari 166 MM Barchetta.

Mue d’un moteur électrique l’emportant à10 km/h, cette voiture est équipée de phares fonctionnels, klaxon, quatre freins à tambours, suspensions, frein à mains, marche avant et arrière, pare-brise… bijou parmi les plus onéreux de son époque. Longue de 1,70m, sa coque fibre est montée sur un châssis en aluminium. Le tout est posé sur un ensemble de pneumatiques gonflables Pirelli, d’origine.
