I am a huge fan of Cinelli! Is this a respray? If so did it previously have chrome lugs? I would love to see some close-ups.

I gather that these frames can still be bought new? Do you or anybody know anything about that and if they are any good compared to the older ones, better maybe or exactly the same?

I friend of mine has one from the early nineties in yellow and I've always liked it and quite like the idea of buying one myself and putting modern 11 speed Campag Athena alloy group set on it.

Yep, Supercorsa's still can be bought new as frame & forks only for a shade under £1700 and a 3 month wait.

Here's the official Cinelli page:

.
I always fancied one of their XCR frames if my numbers came up. I'll just have to stick with my Unica until then which has the same geometry as the Supercorsa and handles like a dream.

no,the paint is an early 80's original one,whit a monocoluour new logo and no chrome lugs.
this frame was made for american criterium,mr Serafino Tomi,the Cino Cinelli last chief mechanic,told me the story of this frame.
