A remarkably sharp-edged concept is typical of Boneschi’s ‘Linea Tesa’ (knife-edged) style. In 1960, coachbuilder Boneschi started a collaboration with the industrial designer Rodolfo Bonetto which gave birth to several futuristic concept cars with the “linee tese” design language. One of those was the Fiat 1500 Spider.
Undoubtedly unusual and eccentric for that time, but we can say that Boneschi somehow anticipated the styling and the squared lines that we later found in the 70s and 80s. This particular car was presented at the 1960 Turin Motor Show.
