1953 BAT 5

Each year between 1953 & 1955 at the Turin Auto Show, Bertone & Alfa Romeo presented a BAT concept car - a study in advanced aerodynamics which produced cars of breathtaking beauty. Three such cars were built under the Berlinetta Aerodynamica Technica study - BAT 5 here was the first. All were based on the contemporary Alfa Romeo 1900 saloon floorpan and achieved staggeringly low coefficient of drag values from Franco Scaglione's extravagant bodywork.
