vintage: Autobianchi A112 | drive it

Small, cute and agile - those are the attributes that helped the Autobianchi A112 lay the groundwork for a new model segment.When it was introduced in the fall of 1969, car lovers got more than just an Italian version of Britain's Mini. Produced by Fiat subsidiary Autobianchi, the A112 was the first truly driveable supermini. We hit the road with an A112 with a 44 horse power, transversely mounted four-cylinder engine.

Only six years later she the millionth mini was handed over personally by designer Alec Issigonis. The success of the mini was down to its ingenious technological design.

vintage: NSU RO 80 | drive it!
It was Europe's Car of the Year when it was introduced, and a flop with car buyers. But in many respects, the innovative NSU Ro-80 was years ahead of its time.When NSU, traditionally a maker of small cars, introduced the Ro-80 in 1967, the company hoped to establish itself in the market for up-scale mid-sized cars. The Ro-80 was powered by a 1-liter rotary engine that produced 115 hp. It had front-wheel drive, four-wheel independent suspension, disc-brakes on all four wheels, and a clean and distinctive aerodynamic shape. Unfortunately, the rotary engine initially had major reliability problems and the car was never a success. Even so, its timeless design and many innovations make it a true milestone in automotive history.
