O.S.C.A. (Officine Specializzate Costruzioni Automobili) was founded in 1947 in Bologna by the Maserati brothers Ernesto, Ettore and Bindo. The brothers left Maserati after they had sold their shares to the Orsi family and their ten-year contract with Adolfo Orsi had terminated. The new workshop for O.S.C.A. was established at San Lazzaro di Saveno outside Bologna.

The OSCA pictured here is a one-off sports coupe built for racing driver Clemente Biondetti (some sources mention Felice Biondetti), with the help of Zagato. The car has an OSCA 4500cc V12 engine. The body no longer exists as the car was rebodied to be a spider.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
