Chassis: CS058
First shown at the 1953 Brussels Salon, chassis CS058 was one of the very last cars clothed by Stabilimenti Farina. It was one of six cars to receive the very low competition 'Berlinetta' body that was most likely penned by Giovanni Michelotti. In 1955 Siata turned the car into a roadster to lengthen its competition career. A year later the now unique Stabilimenti Farina Spyder was entered in the Giro di Sicilia and the Gran Premio di Napoli.

For many years the 208 CS Stabilimenti Farina Spyder was on display in Peter Kaus' fabulous Rosso Bianco Museum. In 2006 the collection was sold in its entirety and the CS058 has since been acquired by the current owner. Beautifully restored, it is seen here at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it was awarded 'Best in Class' in 'Postwar Sports'.
