Sports car class entry adds new twist to the 30th Anniversary event's 'The Best of Detroit' theme

The futuristic, Ghia-styled 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic, one of only eight aluminum-bodied examples equipped with a 115-horsepower 2.0-liter overhead-valve 70-degree V8 Fiat engine, is among the exciting entries in the Sports Car class at the 30th anniversary Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance on August 2, 2009 in Rochester Michigan.

The 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic, celebrated by the press at its 1953 Paris Motor Show debut, came to market later that same year for a handsome sum of $3,100. The limited-production Supersonic was purchased by Detroit manufacturers of the day interested in studying its spectacular design and engineering.

'We are ecstatic that David and Ginny Sydorick have added Meadow Brook to the list of prestigious concours events at which to showcase their superb 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic,' said Larry Moss, Director, Car Selection Committee – Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance. 'The recent alliance between Chrysler and Fiat makes this entry especially relevant to our event's local audience as we all look to the formation of a vibrant 'new' Chrysler and its continued contributions to the best Detroit has to offer.'

Other Sports Car entries include:

- 1967 Ferrari P3/4 (chassis 0846)

- 1964 Cobra 427

- 1966 Ghia 450 SS

- 1967 Morgan Super Sports
