This car is one relic of the endless number of prototypes built in Italy during the fourties and the fifties. This particular car can boast two important name of the business: Gilco and Zagato. In 1949, Gilco produced the 205MM type chassis, with the intention of fitting barchetta coachwork in order to race at the Mille Miglia. This project was later changed as the prototype of a small series of 50–100 cars all to be produced in a spider form. Eventually, only one chassis was produced and was bodied by Zagato in the form of a lightweight spider, powered by the reliable Fiat 1100 engine.
