Provenienza

The model
The Fiat 514 was a medium-range car produced by FIAT from 1929 to 1932. It replaced the Fiat 509, and it was considered the first compact car ever built, as it was 4 meters long. Designed by Tranquillo Zerbi, it was a tremendous commercial success and was widely exported to foreign countries. It was available also in a Taxi version, the “514 L”. Three sports versions were built, all with elegant finishes, the “514 S”, the “514 S MM” as Mille Miglia and the “514 CA” as Coppa delle Alpi. The car was equipped with a 1438 cc four-cylinder in-line engine with a power output of 28 hp, a 4-speed gearbox and rear-wheel drive. The ignition was battery-powered. The standard “514” reached 80 km /h. The 514 S was also equipped with the 1438 cc engine, but with power increased by 25% - reaching 35 hp - and could exceed the "magic" 1930s limit of 100 km/h.It was built in 36,970 units and was marketed in several body versions: two and four-door sedan, two-door spiders, two-door coupes and two and four-door convertibles. It was also manufactured in Spain by “Fiat Hispania” in a factory purchased by Hispano-Suiza, located in Guadalajara. The factory was destroyed in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War and was never rebuilt. In 1950, Fiat invested substantial capital for a new production plant in Barcelona, in the “free zone”, creating the SEAT.The Fiat 508 Balilla will then replace the Fiat 514.
