Draughtsmen clike Michelotti and Frua prepared projects for Ghia who had the bodies completed by Aigle in Lugano. Together Ghia-Aigle intended to equip Jaguar, MG, Panhard, Ferrari and Bugatti frames.
The half-compartments and convertibles based on the Alfa Romeo 1900 in particular allowed Ghia-Aigle to affirm its style. A model identical to that presented here, on the basis of frame MG, was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1952.
This particular example was displayed as part of the ‘100 years of Swiss coachwork’ display at the 2005 Geneva Auto Salon.
