Little Cisitalia Abarth for the last victory and Cisitalia Grand Prix for the last dream

He was back behind the wheel in 1950, with his final races. He was at the Giro di Sicilia/Targa Florio (1.080 km long!) but had to retire due to the broken gear box after a few kilometers.
On April 10th, he raced at Palermo-Montepellegrino hill climb, arriving 5th overall and first in his class.
His car was the Cisitalia 204 Spyder Sport elaborated by Abarth. Although he never announced his retirement from racing, this was to be his last win and his last drive, too.
Then he was seen less often, becoming increasingly isolated. His health declined and he died on August 11th, 1953, in his bed and not (as he had so frequently chanced – and what could have perhaps wished for him) at the wheel of a car. Ferdinand Porsche said then that Nuvolari was «the greatest pilot of the past, the present and the future».
