    When designer Marcello Gandini presented a seemingly wacky concept car called the A112 Runabout Barchetta on the Autobianchi stand at the 1969 Turin Auto Show, little could he have guessed that two decades later the road car it begat would just be going out of production.


    Not only was the show car’s basic shape set to endure, but the Runabout’s racing-boat-inspired wedge profile and razor-sharp lines hinted at a brave new world in automotive design, one that had the potential to shake the mainstream sports car establishment to its core.


    It just needed a visionary to realise it.


    Classic & Sports Car – Fiat X1/9 at 50: celebrating Italy’s miniature supercar


    That the fundamental shape remained unchanged over the X1/9’s 17-year lifespan reaffirms the soundness of Marcello Gandini’s original design
    Fortunately, that person was just around the corner.


    Autobianchi had been subsumed into the Fiat empire the year before the Runabout was unveiled, and, while the concept was initially sidelined, when company chief Gianni Agnelli was shown the project in 1971, he immediately saw it as a perfect successor to the ageing, Bertone-built Fiat 850 Spider.


    What’s more, the mid-engined concept car was already powered by an all-new Fiat engine, Aurelio Lampredi’s 1116cc overhead-cam ‘four’ that had recently been fitted to the company’s first front-wheel-drive model, the 128 saloon.

    *Marchionne, Elkan, Andrea and Juve
    "John prefers Andrea not to enter the company, so he gave him a toy with which to have fun and distract, let's hope he doesn't make any mess".
    The sentence is from the late Sergio Marchionne, then fresh "savior" of Fiat, during a little dinner at his mother's place where he was cooking smoking and telling little anecdotes about his new life at a very high level.
    Sergio in those years was a bit the rabbi of John Elkan, the true heir of his grandfather, the Advocato Agnelli, and Fiat.
    He had promised Palmacchio Di Iulio, Giorgio Beghetto and above all me not to disclose his confidences.
    Today, four years after his premature disappearance, after Andrea Agnelli’s resignation from Juve’s presidency, I would like to reveal that the famous toy was really Juve.
    Without saying it openly Sergio was implying that Elkan preferred to keep his cousin away from important decisions and felt that managing Juve would be a tough match for Andrea.
    The facts for 12 years proved him right - 9 championships in a row - then the current patatrac that, however it ends, certainly did not do the reputation of the sports club well, an important part of the international company Stel floor.
    The money “Andrea/Juve” has come to complicate an already complicated period of Elkan’s life.
    Since the beginning of this month, in fact, the process for Marella Agnelli's inheritance has resumed: 2.4 billion euros between Margherita and her children John, Lapland and Geneva. A war that has been going on for twenty years and that would have repercussions even on Ferrari’s management.
    John Elkann found himself in the span of 12 hours, from 21.30 on Monday 28 November to 9.45 on Tuesday 29 November, managing the resignations of Andrea Agnelli as president of Juventus Football Club and Mattia Binotto as Scuderi team principal a Ferrari.
    A double revolution for Exor's most promising sporting realities, who are experiencing two moments of crisis.
    Speaking of the Red, Sergio used to love Ferrari, went to all the GP's, particularly cheered for Felipe Massa.
    When asked what he would do when he quits Fiat, he immediately answered: Ferrari's president.
    It’s a shame he could do it for such a short time, otherwise today Ferrari would certainly have a few more world titles.

    1953 8V Supersonic is a spectacular example of a sports car with the streamline jet-age styling which defined the automotive sporting culture of the 1950s. This is one of just 15 Fiat 8V Ghia Supersonics that were built, the Supersonic design was penned by Giovanni Savonuzzi for an Alfa Romeo 1900 that raced in the 1953 Mille Miglia, and its beautiful styling has been captivating people ever since.

    The Fiat 15 is a light military bus, manufactured by Fiat Vehicles Industriali for the Royal Army in the Italian-Turkish War in World War I. Manufactured under license by the Russian ZIL as an F-15.
    In 1909 the Regio Esercito requested a multi-use light bus, for transporting personnel and materials. Carlo Cavalli of Fiat Industrial Vehicles designed the Fiat 15. The bus entered service in 1911 and was heavily used in the Italo-Turkish War. In 1911 the Fiat 15 bis version came into production, also called Libya because it was destined for employment in this colony, replaced in the same role, in 1913 by the Fiat 15 ter. This version was manufactured under license by the Russian AMO/ZILin 6,285 copies, which named it the F-15. During World War I, its production for the armed forces was accompanied by the Fiat 18.
    The civilian bus frame was used, among the countless custom settings in many other bodies, such as buses and self-pumps for firefighter bodies.
    The frame is on 4 race wheels, the front steering and the rear motor are twinned. The engine, front, is on the Fiat 15, a Fiat Brevetti 15/20 3053 cm3 petrol cylinder frames, innovative for the presence of a fuel pump instead of gravity power supply. The Fiat 15 bis maintains the same drive, while the Fiat 15 ter mounts a more powerful 4398 cm3 Fiat 53A petrol engine, with a speed from 35 km/h to 40 km/h and steel disc wheels.

    FIAT 500 Cabrio heavily placed in season finale of 'She Hulk: Attorney at Law'

    Not sure if anyone saw it, but the Fiat 500 Cabrio is HEAVILY featured in the season finale of Marvel's 'She Hulk: Attorney At Law' (Episode 9) on Disney+
    So heavily, I'm thinking it must have been a paid product-placement. But why do that for a car that hasn't been available for three years in the U.S.
    Here's a site with a few GIFS from the episode - but watch the episode instead, it really does some off as a 500 commercial
    Scroll to the bottom of the page...

    2017 500 Abarth, manual trans, NAV, Beats, Sunroof, 17" wheels, everything. But no mods. None, nada.
