Chassis: 04
Completed by Abarth in 1950, this 204A has several unique features, including the bracket-supported front fenders. It was with this chassis that Tazio Nuvolari competed in and won his very last race. Various other drivers raced the car for Abarth in 1950, including Luigi Valenzano, who scored a class win in the Gran Premio di Pergusa. The car re-appeared in 1953 in the hands of Ernesto Ferri, who raced for a year throughout Italy at events that included the Targa Florio.

Chassis 04 then followed Cisitalia founder Dusio home to Argentina. Here its racing career continued with the now ten year old car making appearances as late as 1958. It was subsequently used by the Asociacion Argentina de Automoviles Sport as a training car for racing drivers. The current, Argentinian owner eventually acquired the car in 1978. A marque expert, he has since had the ex-Nuvolari machine meticulously restored to its original condition. At a rare outing, it is seen here during the 2012 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
