Le premier modèle de la marque Autobianchi fut la Bianchina, destinée à une demande purement féminine de la haute société italienne qui voulait une voiture de petite taille, facile à conduire et qui ne soit pas celle de Monsieur tout le monde. La Bianchina utilise la base de la Fiat 500, plateforme et mécanique. Ce modèle Berline F est relativement rare en France, car produit entre 1965 et 1969 à 38.500 exemplaires. Il s''agit ici d''une version 4 places de la Bianchina de 3m02 de long, nommée Lutèce en France.
Elle a été utilisée jusqu''en 1989 et elle en possède encore sa vignette sur le pare-brise. Elle a été ensuite remisée et a bénéficié d''une peinture complète crème en 2014, d''un intérieur neuf caramel, et a fait l''objet de nombreux travaux (5 pneus Michelin, freins, phares, pares choc, chromes…) et remplacement du 499 cm3 par un moteur de 650 cm3 pour plus de vivacité en ville où elle navigue comme un poisson dans l''eau. Elle est vendue avec sa housse et dispose d''une protection de pare choc avant, accessoire d''époque rare. Elle est aujourd''hui utilisée sur la Côte Bleue dans le Sud de la France pour se rendre au marché le dimanche matin. Son propriétaire ayant acquis 2 autres autos récemment, il doit se résigner à faire un peu de place dans sa collection…

Autobianchi''s first model was the Bianchina, directed mainly at a feminine clientele, specifically from Italian high society who wanted a small car, easy to drive. The Bianchina was based on the Fiat 500''s platform and mechanicals. This sedan model Berline F is relatively rare in France, produced between 1965 and 1969, with around 38,500 units built. This is a four-seater version of the Bianchina and is just 3.02 meters long, and was named Lutèce in France.
This car was used until 1989, and still has its year sticker on the windscreen. It was then stored and was then fully repainted a shade of cream in 2014, receiving a new interior in caramel, and was the subject of numerous jobs (plus new 5 Michelin tires, new brakes, new headlamps, shocks, chrome, etc) and the 499cc engine was replaced by a 650cc unit which is more tractable for an urban use. The car is being sold with its cover and has a front bumper protection, a rare original accessory. It is now being used on the Côte d''Azur in the South of France to get to the market on Sunday mornings. As its owner has acquired two other cars recently, he has no choice but to let go this one, to make space for the others in his collection...
