Fiat 1100 BOAT-CAR CARROZZERIA CORIASCO | 1953

This 'boat on wheels' is definitely not seaworthy. The Turin bodywork manufacturer Coriasco built this striking Fiat 1100-based vehicle in the 1950s to make publicity for a sailing school in Bologna, the Scuola Nautica Scarani. Coriasco applied all sorts of nautical details to the car, such as portholes, lifebuoys and a varnished wooden deck; the mudguards represent the water and waves.

and if someone just happened to drive it into the water, it would sink, as jeremy clarkson would say, like a church?

Would you mind if I used this as a reference for my Attempts series of drawings? I would link back to the original image in my finished drawing.

Does it handle like a jet ski, or like a barge? ;)

The base is a Fiat 1100. The Turin bodywork manufacturer Coriasco built this boat body for the car as an advertisement for a sailing school in Bologna.

Is this only cosmetic or will it float? It's so awesome!

It wasn't meant to float. Tha car (a Fiat 1100) has been given a boat body by Coriasco as an advertisement for a sailing school in Bologna.
