HistoryEdit

The company history began in 1849 when Carlo Castagna bought the Ferrari coachbuilding business. Carrozzeria Castagna built the first coach automobile with a combustion engine (Benz quadricycle).[citation needed]

Later the company worked with larger car manufacturers, including: Isotta Fraschini, Duesenberg, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and Mercedes-Benz.[1]

The original company ceased in 1954.[2] The company name was revived twice in the 1990s.[3] The latest works of the company include the Mini (BMW).[1]
