This is either from a book or magazine but I can't remember where I got it. Anyone have any ideas?

It's a Cisitalia D46 by the way.

Er, dunno, DD. But by jingo you're clearly a dab hand with Photoshop. Lurve the drop shadow! :up: :up:

I remember I saw something slightly similar in Porsche Museum in Gmund, Austria a few years ago...

Could it be from Dante Giacosa "40 years of Fiat design"? I could check tonight...

I do not have it here, but I'd try at Norman Smith's "Case History".

It would have to be from a book or magazine that I own. I'll check Case History.

Long-time lurker finally able to help out!

It's on page 48 of Doug Nye's "History of the Grand Prix Car 1945-65", and is actually the "proposed 1953 'Indy'-style 375" Ferrari. The D46 is the pic above it in the book.

Chris

That explains why the D46 drawing in Giacosa's book didn't really match with the picture above...
