In November 1934, the company SIMCA (Société Industrielle de Mécanique et de Carrosserie Automobile) was founded. The Italian car manufacturer FIAT had a large share in it. The company was very successful, under the direction of Henri Théodore Pigozzi, with the production of the Simca 5, a licensed version of the Fiat 500 Topolino. During a visit to Turin, Pigozzi noticed a convertible designed by Michelotti. The Cisitalia 202, which was later adopted as the first convertible for the Ferrari 166 and presented at the Geneva Salon in 1949. Impressed by the great success, he began production of the Simca 8 Sport, as a coupé and convertible, in March 1950. However, the production volume at Farina in Italy was very limited, and import duties were also high. Facel-Metallon, Paris, then produced the vehicle in small series, mostly by hand, under Farina licence. With its 50 hp, the Simca 8 Sport achieved a top speed of 135 km/h. Which was still considered sporty in the early 1950s. The F1 drivers of the time, Maurice Tritignant and Jean Behra, celebrated great successes with it at the Monte Carlo Rally. The Simca 8 Sport was considered the most beautiful French car at the time.
At 920,000 francs, the convertible was twice as expensive as the Simca 8 saloon.
