The Bianchi Specialissima is undoubtedly one of the most iconic racing bicycles which the Milanese brand has ever produced. Unmistakably Bianchi for the famous "Celeste paintwork", the Specialissima has been developed in different versions which stick out for a unique manufacturing and attention to details. Just as the Bianchi Specialssima X3, a rare model released in the early 1980s and sold for a short time. The frameset was built with Columbus tubes and differed from other models for a few, refined details:
- a sloped fork crown
- aero-shaped seat stays
- "V" shaped brake bridge
The Specialissima X3 frameset was then subsequently used as the base from which the Bianchi Centenario model was developed. The very typical fork crown, rear triangle and brake bridge of which were basically adopted from the X3.
