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.

Vintage! Porsche 911S | drive it!
The 911 is THE iconic sports car and the raspy note from its air-cooled engine became its trademark.Two years after the 911 hit the showrooms, Porsche came out with the even more powerful 911S. Under the hood was a 2 liter motor pumping out 160 PS. It was enough to take car and driver to a top speed of over 220 km/h. The original design from 1963 was the work of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who was just 28 years old at the time. The car's timeless silhouette still catches the eye today and provides the blueprint for all 911s that followed.

Slideshow Part5 Kaufdorf car graveyard Spring 2010
Kaufdorf Autofriedhof - Switzerland's vintage car graveyard. It was the biggest graveyard of its kind in Europe -- a vast metal jungle of more than 1,000 rusting vintage cars including forgotten British Wolseleys, "sit up and beg" Ford Prefects, rotting Porsches and even the wreck of a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. The collection of decaying old-timers, which go back to the late-1920s, sits in makeshift corrugated iron garages and among trees on the edge of Kaufdorf some 10 miles south of Switzerland's capital Bern. After surviving for 75 years, the authorities have declared that the collection is an environmental hazard and decided to clear it by court order. But the plan has provoked uproar among concerned Kaufdorf locals and more than just a few other Swiss residents. A campaign to preserve the site was started when an open day was held. The organisers expected about 50 people to attend, but 10,000 turned up. Franz Messerli, whose father founded the car cemetery, said: "We never expected such interest. Our aim is to preserve it for posterity as a national work of art." Mr Messerli's father, Walter, opened what was originally intended as a vehicle breaker's yard in 1933. A part-time racing driver and scrap-metal dealer, he was fascinated by cars and even taught himself to be a mechanic. At its peak, his collection numbered about 2,000 vehicles.

1972 AUTOBIANCHI A112 ABARTH 58HP GROUP 1 RALLY/RACE/HILLCLIMB CAR
We have for sale this little pocket rocket of a rally car. £9,950. An ex 'Trofeo Abarth' Series 2 Autobianchi A112 prepared to Group 1 specification. Armed with a potent little 982cc Abarth engine that has been very well prepared. The eager Abarth engine coupled with the sharp handling ensures these little beasts will happily eat up the competition in the 'Up To 1000cc' catagory. This particular A112 started life as an early Series 2 Elegant. It was originally prepared for competiton by Francesco Bacci, who's company, Bacci Romano now make some of the best race and rally gearboxes in historic racing. After Mr Bacci, the car was next used in anger by Alberto Borghi, the very same racing driver that built the little green Gr.1 Abarth 70hp we sold earlier in 2013. In 2008 Mr Borghi prepared the car and fully rebuilt the engine for Group 1 competition under Homologation Form Number 5518, and thus obtaining the FIA Historical Technical Passport. The car was subsequently raced by Alberto in numerous Hill Climbs throughout Italy, winning many events and notching up a fearsome reputation in events such as Camucia Cortona, Coppa Del Cimino and the Coppa Del Chianti Classico amongst many others. It then passed hands to a long term friend of Mr Borghi, Mario Mazzolenis. Mario made further preparations with the addition of a new rally suspension set up, sump guard and rally spotlights. These alterations were made in order to compete in historic rallies as apposed to hill climbs. The next event, which happened to be the last, was in 2011 at the Rally Elba Storici on the schedule of the 2011 Trofeo A112 Abarth competition. Now it's in stock here at Targa Florio Classics. This Gr.1 Autobianchi is just itching to get dirty and earn it's stripes on a forest stage somewhere with the kind of flat-out driving it's been built for. All the while being egged on by the Banshee like scream of a genuine Abarth engine at high revs. SPECIFICATION: Valid FIA Historical Technical Passport.
