Some cars are able to leave their mark an era, their names written indelibly not only on the history of four-wheel transport, but also the much more significant trends and culture of their time. Among them are the Fiat 500 and the Volkswagen Beetle, but also the unforgettable Mini. The small, revolutionary car designed by Alex Issigonis and presented in 1959, was produced right through to the next millennium by a number of manufacturers (Austin, Morris, Innocenti) in so many different versions. This book tells the industrial, technical and sporting story – including the giant-killing Monte Carlo Rally victories – of this authentic milestone of the 20th century.

CITROEN DS - Serie "Le vetture che hanno fatto la storia"

ON THE OCCASION OF THE 60th ANNIVERSARY
Among the all-time masterpieces in the history of automobile design and technology, the absolute top place certainly goes to the Citroën DS. When the car first appeared at the Paris Motor Show 60 years ago, it suddenly made all the others that went before it seem obsolete. The author of a book on the Citroën 2CV, in this volume Giancarlo Catarsi covers the technical, stylistic and sporting stories of this true icon which, from the moment it was first unveiled, distinguished itself for its excellent comfort, habitability, driving visibility, handling and stability. It became the absolute in comparison with all the other manufacturers, as well as yet another model of excellence in the history of this prestigious French marque.

AUTOBIANCHI PRIMULA e A111

Finally following up on a project he had had in mind from the time of the Topolino, in the autumn of 1964 engineer Dante Giacosa was able to launch the first front wheel drive Fiat. In reality it wasn’t a Fiat at all but an Autobianchi, the satellite marque based at Desio. As well as for its “all up front”, the Primula also stood out due to another courageous and unusual decision: the 3-door body with a hatchback. Unveiled to a rather cool reception from the marketplace, in part for its not exactly competitive price, the Primula declined into a series of almost infinite bodies: 2, 4 and 5 door and a coupé. In the mechanical area, the old engine was derived from the 1100, but that was replaced by a new power unit from the Fiat 124. A year later, the car joined the A111 and then replaced it, with the mechanics of the Primula and a much more conventional, three-volume body. It was a saloon more sought after than the Fiat models of the day, but it left the market in the autumn of 1972. Unpublished colour pictures, detailed technical specifications and a section on restoration tell of the genesis and evolution of these two unique Autobianchis, not expressly conceived and designed as utilities.
