Spot of the Day: Autobianchi A112 Abarth

Hey Guys
I'm spending some Days in the beautiful Italy right now and this little Italian caught my attention yesterday evening - the Autobianchi A112 Abarth with 70 HP and will replace the "Car of the Week" today.

The first Abarth Version sof this A112 were introduced in 1971 with a 982 cc engine with 58 PS (43 kW; 57 bhp).
In 1975 this one was replaced by 1,050 cc one with now 70 PS (51 kW; 69 bhp) at a weight of only 700 kg (1,540 lb)
Through these characteristics it was often used in Rallye series all over europe and even had and own one-make trophy.

Up from 1982 it was badged outside Italy as the Lancia A112. In total more than 1.2 million A112 were produced between 1969 and 1985.

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
