Autobianchi Bianchina

The Autobianchi Bianchina is an automobile produced by the Italian automaker Autobianchi, based on the Fiat 500. It was available in various configurations: Berlina (saloon), Cabriolet (roadster), Trasformabile (convertible), Panoramica (station wagon), and Furgoncino (van). The car was presented to the public on September 16, 1957 at the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.

Initially, the car was equipped with the smallest Fiat engine, air-cooled 479 cc producing 15 hp (11 kW). In 1959, the engine power was increased to 17 hp (13 kW) and in 1960, the cabriolet version was launched.

In the same year, the Trasformabile, whose engine cylinder capacity was increased to 499 cc (18 hp), was made available in a Special version with bicolour paint and an engine enhanced to 21 hp (16 kW). In 1962, the Trasformabile was replaced by a 4-seat saloon. The engine and chassis were the same as in the Trasformabile.

In 1965, a minor facelift was made.

In 1970 Bianchina went out of production, replaced by the more modern A112.


The Bianchina was produced from 1957 to 1970, for a total volume of approximately 275,000. From 1970 to 1977, the model name was Giardinera, which only existed in station wagon and van variations.
