SIATA 1936





Siata (Societa Italiana Applicazioni Trasformazioni Automobilistiche) was founded by Georgio Ambrosini in Turin in 1926 to manufacture tuning accessories for Italian cars. Their cylinder heads with overhead valves (for the 500A) were particularly successful, and they also used superchargers for some applications. One of these, with a body by Zagato and driven by Piero Dusio won its class in the 1936 Mille Miglia.
