Franco Scaglione had previous bodied the Alfa BAT series the Alfa Sprint Speciale and the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale all stunning examples of Italian styling at its best. Abundant power was supplied with new 302 Ford Shelby Mustang engines transmissions and rear axles shipped directly to Italia in Turino and so Italia s/n48185311 is powered by an ultra-dependable 302 V8. Thanks to a light clutch the Italia Torino is user-friendly easy to drive and certainly has no lack of power. While the Italia was easily capable of the supercar performance levels of the Ferrari Daytona Spider and the Maserati Ghibli spyder the Italia Torino was also known for its drivability at both low and high speeds as well as its predictable balanced and forgiving handling characteristics attributable to near-perfect weight distribution and a low center of gravity. The lightweight small block Ford 302 was mounted deep in the chassis permitting the low hood line while a stiff suspension ensured that the tires would not foul wheelarches.SN 48185311 IS ONE OF 133 TORINO ITALIAS BUILT IN 1968.
