The Fiat 508 “Balilla” was the most popular car produced in Italy in the 1930's. In June 1937 the new “Balilla” 508C, equipped with a 4 cylinder engine, had been introduced on the car market. Furthermore, the new 508C has been used as platform for the development of vehicles for military applications such as Fiat 508 CM “Coloniale”.
Characterized by a 2-wheel drive traction, a length of 3.6 meters and the reliable 1.100cc 4-cylinder engine the Fiat 508c was capable of delivering 32 hp that allowed it to reach 90 Kph.
The Fiat “Coloniale” was especially used for the mobility of officers and for HQ operations in North Africa. However, the overall strength of the vehicle, the bigger size of the tires, and the good mechanics reliability, had made Fiat “Coloniale” suitable for advanced reconnaissance duties in off-road terrain.
