Vignale was an Italian automobile coachbuilder company. Carrozzeria Alfredo Vignale was established in 1946 by Alfredo Vignale (born 1913) in Grugliasco, near Turin (Torino).


The first body on a Fiat 500 base was made in 1948, followed by a special Fiat 1100. Most customers were Italian firms such as Cisitalia, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat, Maserati and Lancia. In 1968, Vignale designed the body of Tatra T613. Vignale designed and built cars, usually low volume variants of the main production cars of these automobile manufacturers.

A close cooperation was maintained with Michelotti. Vignale was taken over by Ghia in 1969 and ceased to exist in 1974. Aston Martin produced a concept car called the Lagonda Vignale at the 1993 Geneva motor show. Aston are owned by Ford who in turn also own Ghia which is how the name came to be revived.
