AERMACCHI CHIMERA

The chimera (in ancient Greek: Χίμαιρα, Chímaira, in Latin: Chimaera) is a mythological monster with parts of the body of different animals. According to the Greek myth it is part of the progeny of Typhon and Echidna, together with the Hydra of Lerna, Cerberus and Ortro.

Alfredo Bianchi and the former pilot Marco Ravelli, designed this bike / scooter in the 50s, a few decades ago on the streets you could see this masterpiece of design.

I believe that if we were to see it today we would be able to define it as “modern”, “innovative”. All this didn’t allow her to be a success in sales, I think she was too modern for those times, too “ahead”, despite having been proposed (also) with two 175 and 250 cc engines.

Only 119 specimens were produced for the 175 and 177 for the 250, today the Aermacchi Chimera is very rare.

 

AERMACCHI CHIMERA WITH GIORDANI WHEELCHAIR, 1956.
After World War II, the Macchi Air Force decided to expand the activity by adding to the production of aircraft that of motorcycles. In 1956 the company produced one of the most fascinating motorcycles of the Italian motorcycle industry: the Chimera, designed by Mario Revelli of Beaumont. It was the perfect synthesis of the most advanced technical and stylistic requirements. Too original and elegant at the time, it did not achieve the success it deserved.
ACCESSORIES AND CURIOSITIES: the friezes recall the aeronautical origins of the house. The buggy, not standard, is inspired by Giordani’s “Reactor” toy, very popular in the 1950s.

508 – Balilla

FIAT

 

The 508 Balilla was a compact car designed and developed by Fiat in 1932. It was, effectively, the replacement of the Fiat 509, although production of the earlier model had ceased back in 1929.

It had a three-speed transmission (increased to four in 1934), seated four, and had a top speed of about 50 mph (80 km/h). It sold for 10,800 lire (or 8,300 2005 euro).

About 113,000 were produced.

The car was also assembled by Walter Motors a.s. in Czechoslovakia, in the Centralne Warsztaty Samochodowefactory in Poland, by NSU-Fiat in Germany and by “SAFAF” (rebranded in 1934 as “Simca-Fiat”) in France.

When the challenge is taken to the extreme…

ASTRA

Some loads are too heavy, or too big, to be transported on a standard truck.

Turbines, boilers, bridge beams and other architectural or industrial components are huge – and indivisible. In order to move them, special vehicles are required, powerful enough and equipped for hauling or hoisting large items. We do such vehicles.

ASTRA extra-reinforced steel structure provides unparalleled loading capacity to satisfy the most demanding requirements of towing missions. Our HD9 offers an ample range of traction solutions, from the simple (and strong) 6×4 to the ultra-stable 8×6 and 8×8 versions – all of them rigid or tractor, with single, double or sleeper cab.

HD9 engines offer a maximum power output of up to 560 hp, and can be equipped with increased-size radiators and additional cooling systems for hot climates. The versatile and robust driveline includes torque converter gearboxes and extra-strong driving axles (up to10 t front, 20 t rear).

Trucks can be specified with extra-wide tires, special towing hooks, reinforced cross members and high-capacity fuel tanks.  Tailor-made transformations are performed directly in our factory to guarantee the highest quality standards.

Everything is designed to perform well (and last) with high-haulage vehicle combinations up to 400 t.

 

When the challenge is taken to the extreme, then ASTRA comes into play.
