I spotted this Autobianchi Bianchina Trasformabile on the west side of Munich a few weeks back. It’s a tiny Italian two-door convertible based on the Fiat 500. The ~500cc air-cooled inline two-cylinder engine makes only about 15 horsepower, but that’s probably enough for a machine with four forward gears and a curb weight of just 1,200 pounds. Look at all the chrome; check out the suicide doors; behold the mirrors on the fenders — wow, this little car just drips with soul.
