Autobianchi A112 Abarth

Autobianchi A112, the story of an urban with aspirations.

Practical, economical, modern, elegant and agile, it was the adventure companion of many young people in the 60s, 70s and 80s. In the 60s of the last century, the little Mini managed to overcome customs barriers and began to be marketed across half the continent. The engineer Dante Giacosa, father of the Fiat 500, took on the task of designing a rival to the height of the British vehicle. The Autobianchi presented at the Turin motor show in 1969, which immediately received a warm welcome from the public, was one of the first models that included front-wheel drive and a transverse engine, with just over 900 cm3. It delivered 44 hp, combined with a four-speed manual gearbox. The A112 was basically a fun car to drive, capable of transmitting sporty sensations despite its small size. The engine increased the displacement to 982 cm3 and the power reached 57 CV. Thanks to this, the car was capable of reaching 152 km/h and reaching 100 km/h from a standstill in just 13.0 seconds.
