  1. This is Autobianchi A112. a supermini produced by the Italian automaker Autobianchi. It was developed using the mechanicals which subsequently underpinned the Fiat 127.

  2. That is an Autobianchi A112, later facelift model (original had chorme bumpers back in 1969 – this must be from the late 70ies). Btw., that was lending most of it's technology to the Yugo šŸ˜‰

  3. Easy! Autobianchi A112. This was the high priced, sofisticated citycar from Fiat, in the 70's and 80's (while the Fiat 126 was more for the average people). They also built an Abarth version of the A112, with 70 hp. That engine, combined with the very light weight of the chassis, made that car very funny to drive, but also quite challenging (nicknamed "flying coffin", for that reason…).

  4. That's an Autobianchi A112. I think the small hood scoop suggests that it is the Abarth version.

    Fantastic little car … not sure about the reliability though!

  5. Hi, it's an Autobianchi A112 also marketed as the Lancia A112 and they were built from'69 (Autobianchi)-'86(Lancia)

  6. It's an Autobianchi A112 Abarth Mk 3. I had the same when I was yound in the midle of the eighties. its engine was a four cylinders with 1050 cm3 and 70 HP, gearbox with 4 or 5 speeds, max speed : 160 km/h or 99 mph . It was a small ( 3.28 m x 1.48 m ) but a wonderful car

  7. Ok, all these are too easy for European people.

    It's the Autobianchi A112, famous for it's Abarth version.

    For me it's the real successor of Mini. It even looks simmilar to Isigonis archetype.

    It carried the mechanics of the legendary Fiat 127 that appeard later. Like Fabia is nowdays introduce us to every next generation VW Polo platform.

    Rumor has it that when the new global mini by Fiat arrives, replacing Palio, we might have it as an Autobianchi in Europe.

  8. not positive of this one, but i think it's an Autobianchi. not familiar with particular nomenclature though.

  9. Definitely Autobianchi as others have noted but I'm guessing from later than 1970's; note its use of heavier bunpers and headrests that came later to much of Europe than the US.
