New Italian car shrine opens in Turin

FCA Heritage Hub

A treasure trove of Fiat, Lancia, Abarth and Alfa Romeo cars is about to open its doors to the public.

Set in the former Officina 81 site in Via Plava, part of the huge industrial area of Mirafiori, more than 250 vehicles are on display, including rare concepts, race and rally cars – some never exhibited before.

The Heritage Hub celebrates the heritage of FCA (FIAT Chrysler Automobiles is the parent company of the iconic Italian brands).

The central area features eight thematic exhibitions, each of which highlights eight cars from different eras and brands – the oldest dating back to 1908, and the most modern to 2008.

Highlights include the Fiat Campagnola AR 51 that drove the length of Africa from Cape Town to Algiers in 1952 in a record 11 days, the Lancia Fulvia HF 1600, which won the 1972 Monte Carlo Rally and the Lancia Flavia, the first Italian model equipped with front-wheel drive and disc brakes on all four wheels.
