Vehicle Description

– Siata Spring, exotic roadster, completely unrestored and original
– even the underbody has not been welded
– four owners from new, all in Germany, one of them held this car for 38 years
– very low original mileage of 37,200 km, as the car was mostly used as showroom eye-catcher
– brought back into running order in 2016, new fuel pump and brakes
– incredible state of preservation for a 47 year old unrestored vehicle
– it will be difficult to find a Siata Spring in equally original condition
– German registration documents, valid technical approval until 07/2018 and historic plates


The Siata company was founded in 1926 by Giorgio Ambrosini, and specialised originally in modifying and tuning of Fiat cars. Production of their own Fiat-based sports cars commenced in 1948. For a brief two years, 1959-1961, Siata cooperated with Abarth. In the 1960s, the company was best known for elegantly styled coupé and roadster bodies. The Siata Spring, presented in 1967, was a bit of a breach with this tradition. It is best described as a retro-styled fun car. While taking styling cues from old-school British roadsters, such as swept wheel arches, running boards and separate headlights, it was no precise replica of any existing car. The large upright radiator grille was strictly ornamental, the engine being located in the rear as the underlying Fiat 850 technology postulated. The somewhat quirky little roadster was quite a success, but it could not prevent the Siata company from going bankrupt in 1970. The assembly line of the Spring was sold to a newly founded company in Sardinia named Orsa, and production was continued from 1973 to 1975 which minor improvements. Today, the Siata Spring is a very rare sight indeed, the surviving examples of this unique and likeable car are mostly held by a committed fan base. Owing to the ready availability of Fiat 850 spare parts and a well-organized club scene, the Siata Spring’s future looks bright.
