The Siata 208 CS Spider was presented at the Brussels Salon in 1953. It was designed by Siata (the acronym identifying the “Società Italiana Auto Trasformazioni Accessori” since 1949), a small car manufacturer founded in 1926, which specialized in special features and sports cars based on Fiat models until it shut down in 1970.
