Chassis: 106*000042
Amidst the run of iconic Supersonic bodies, Ghia fitted one Fiat 8V with this more conservative design. Penned by company owner Mario Boano, the two-door coupe did feature several typical Ghia style elements like the slightly in-board mounted headlights and the 'kickup' in the rear wing. Chassis 000042 was completed by Fiat in July of 1953 and then ended up at Ghia, either directly or possibly through a dealer.

The unique car's early history is not entirely clear but it ended up in the United States before the end of the decade. There it changed hands many times before it was painstakingly restored in California during the late 1990s. The Ghia Coupe was subsequently shown at Pebble Beach and entered in The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering. In 2007, it returned to Europe where it was entered in the 2008 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
