1960 Autobianchi Bianchina Trasformabile
Italian automaker Autobianchi’s debut model was the Fiat 500-based Bianchina, named after Edoardo Bianchi’s first-ever automobile. The Bianchina debuted as the “trasformabile” coupe, with a full-length folding sunroof and plentiful chrome trim. Positioned up-market from the Fiat 500, which had been designed as basic transportation for the masses, the Bianchina was marketed as a fun second car or luxurious recreational vehicle.
For this EVO version, I intermixed some modern Fiat 500 parts plus opened up the fender openings and modified the body in subtle spots. It would make for an interesting EV-based platform for about town fun.
