|The 508 Balilla was a compact car designed and developed by Fiat in 1932. It is 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 Samochodowe factory in Poland, by NSU-Fiat in Germany and by "SAFAF" (rebranded in 1934 as "Simca-Fiat") in France.

Bom dia Gianfranco,
I enjoyed immensely this mix of photorealism and geometrism.
This is an admirable photo

I like the tight crop and focusing on certain features of the car and the reflection on the number is great
