The Specialissima was born in 1956, when the Bianchi team already had quite an award collection and Fausto Coppi – whose name would forever be connected to the company – had already won five Giro d’Italia and two Tour de France. The company, established in 1885, had been the leader in the Italian market for decades.
Throughout the 1960s, the Specialissima – replacing the famous “Campione del Mondo” model, so similar in the frame profile but so different in the components – would become the top-ranking Bianchi racing bicycle. The Specialissima: a superlative that was not uttered with haughtiness or arrogance, but with well-grounded pride.
