Carrozzeria Vignale was an Italian automobile coachbuilder company. Carrozzeria Alfredo Vignale was established in 1948 at Via Cigliano, Turin by Alfredo Vignale in Grugliasco, near Turin.
The first body on a Fiat 500 Topolino base was made in 1948, followed by a special Fiat 1100. Most customers were Italian firms such as Cisitalia, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat, Maserati, Lancia.
In 1952, Vignale collaborated with Briggs Cunningham to jointly produce the Continental. In 1968, Vignale designed the body of Tatra 613.
Vignale designed and built cars, usually low volume variants of the main production cars of these automobile manufacturers. Amongst them were 850, Samantha, Eveline and the Vignale Gamine, based on the Fiat 500.
A close cooperation was maintained with Michelotti. Vignale was taken over by DeTomaso Automobili (owned by Ford) in 1969 and ceased to exist in 1974.
