Cisitalia identification help

Does anyone know anything about this Cisitalia model? Year? Model? Carroseria? I want to say Fissore, but that is purely a guess bases on the location of the carosseria emblem at the bottom of the door. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

all I can think of is a rebodied 204 or a 205 that managed to stay under the radar. The picture looks pretty recent, so eventually the story will come out. Do you knwo where it was taken?

A few competition cars were also built, such as the 202 MM spyder and 202 SMM spyder.

Could it be one of those Fiat 1100 based coupes that Cisitalia was building in the mid 50s?

It's a 1954 Cisitalia 33DF Voloradente 1100cc coupe

Solved: Near Mint – solved by many!
There's one on this page, so this is either restored or there's at least one other one out there.

This Japanese site has a shot from the back and the full name. According to this site, they made 12-14 cars, so there's a chance we'll see another in the future.

It looks awfully Zagato-esque in the rear windows, almost like an Abarth 750 Zagato with a much better looking (in my view) front and rear end. I haven't found any story behind it yet.

That's nice, I am sure Alemano, who posted the "puzzles" in your link, would have eventually shown up here to tell us what the car is all about. And the other derelict cars are fantastic too...

and the Lancia Fulvia in your second link already made an appearence on the Techno Classica this year, so hopefully the Cisitalia may head this way too.
