Produced by Autobianchi (a firm started by a former design director of FIAT), the Stellina was a small rear-engine barchetta^ car that was produced for just two years until 1965.
Based on a FIAT 600D, this car designed by former FIAT and Zagato design director Fabio Luigi Rapi had a fibreglass body that sat on a steel frame. What was unique about this car was the fact that this was the first Italian car to have a fibreglass body that people (then) perceived it as luxury. At the rear was a small 750 cc engine that gave a power output of 29HP.
With a price tag of 1 million Italian Lira, it was beyond the reach of the common public and so only 500 cars rolled out until production ended in 1965.
^ an automotive design style in which a 2-seater sports car has a removable/non-removable open-top. Barchetta, in Italian also means 'small boat'
