1981 Autobianchi A 112 Abarth
After the success of the Autobianchi A112, the Fiat group dealt a severe blow to the supremacy of the Innocenti Mini in the rich market segment of small luxury cars for young people and women. In particular, the latter appreciated the new Autobianchi model for its ease of driving, the elegance of the finishes and the versatility of use, also determined by the tailgate.
The process of "civilization", which began with the 4th series, became even clearer and was symbolically underlined by the disappearance of the Abarth scorpions on the sides. All the updates of the 5th series, presented in July 1979, were aimed at improving driving comfort, neglecting any sporting innovation or increase in power.
Apart from a few aesthetic adjustments, the most important innovations concerned the adoption of the 5-speed gearbox and electronic ignition. The standard equipment became particularly rich, including the rear fog lights, the external mirror adjustable from the inside, the heated rear window, the athermic windows, the rear window wiper and the split rear seat.
The car was offered in single-color racing red, sea anemone red, Lancia blue, saratoga white, ardent amaranth, black, Morocco beige and light or dark metallic gray.
