SIATA (Società Italiana Applicazioni Tecniche Auto-Aviatorie) was an Italian automobile company that operated from 1926 to 1970. The company specialised in the production of sports cars and racing cars and was based in Turin, Italy.
Founded by Giorgio Ambrosini and Sandro Mazzini, SIATA began as a small company engaged in the production of accessories and parts for aircraft engines. Later, the company shifted its focus to car production and started building sports cars.
In the 1940s and 1950s, SIATA was a popular choice for racing teams and private owners looking for high-quality sports cars. The company also produced some very rare and unique cars, such as the 1953 SIATA 208S, known as one of the most valuable and sought-after cars among collectors.
In 1951, SIATA introduced the Daina Sport, a sports car with bodywork built by the famous coachbuilder Stabilimenti Farina. The Daina Sport was based on the chassis of the Fiat 1400 and was powered by a 1.5-litre engine developed by SIATA. It was a beautifully designed car with streamlined bodywork and striking chrome details.
The SIATA Daina Sport was intended to be a luxury and high-performance sports car that could beat rivals like Ferrari and Maserati. The car was used successfully in races and rallies, winning several awards, including the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1952.
The car was ordered in 1951 by Bruno Ferrari, who had the car built specifically to participate in the legendary Mille Miglia in 1952. Unfortunately, Ferrari decided to resell the car to a Mexican owner within six months. Fortunately, all documents, including the sales agreement and correspondence between the previous owners, have been preserved, so the full history of the car can be traced and recorded. The car is special not only because of its history, but also because of its rarity and concours condition. It is an original coupe with the original colour and a nut and bolt restoration that has ensured that every part is numbered and documented. Moreover, the car comes with the original tool kit and licence plate.
The SIATA Daina Sport has driven the Mille Miglia twice, in 2019 and 2022, and the organisers love it. The car drives great and has a super sound.
