Fiat 126

Fiat 126 was launched at Turin Motor Show in 1972 as a direct successor to the Fiat 500 (never matched its fame, though). Both cars followed the same formula, which can be summarized as "small, underpowered, economic". You can add to it something more technical like the same wheel base, rear engine and rear-wheel drive. The 126 was initially powered by the 594 cc straight-2 with 23 PS and 4-speed manual transmission. 0-100 km/h acceleration took about 36 seconds (or ages) and the top speed was 106 km/h (if you dared). Between 1972 and 1980 a number of 1,352,912 examples were produced in Italy. Fiat 126 was also licensed to Poland where it was produced as Polski Fiat 126p until 2000 (and gained a cult status), but that deserves an another story.
