Built by S.I.L.A. in Turin, Italy and styled by the famous Italian auto designer Giovanni Michelotti, these wonderful child's cars were based on the open Ferrari spyder of the day, with a shapely sculpted fiberglass body, electric motor, and working lights - what more could a kid ask for? Imported into the USA by Ferrari, Inc. of San Francisco. Period advertising in this country proclaimed them as 'A Real Car - for pre-teen men and women of distinction'.
