Long Description:
The placard accompanying this car in the Museo Nazionale della Scienza y della Tecnologia Leonardo Da Vinci informs us:

"Nel 1901 Edoardo Bianchi progetta questa elegante autmobile. La carrozzeria e modellata su legni pregiati e fogli de alluminio che poggiano su un robusto telaio composto da una struttura rettangolare in tubo di acciaio. Un secondo telaio,
all'interno del primo, permetteva in casa d'urto di salvaguardare le parti meccaniche, il motore e il gruppo del cambio. Il veicolo era dotato di freno a mano per le ruote posteriori e dispositivo antirinculo. L'accensione era a manovella. Quando e stata presentata nel 1903 costava quasi 10,000 lire. Nel prezzo venivano incluse due giorni di scuola guida per i piloti inesperti e una trousse di accessori con chiavi inglese, rotolo di nastro adesivo e pompa d'aria."
