The Italian name “Topolino” translates to “little mouse” and as you can see, the name fits the appearance of this small 2-door vehicle. The tiny sedan was one of the smallest cars in the world at the time of its debut at the Geneva auto show and could only churn out 17 horsepower.

Debuting at Geneva, the Fiat 1400 was the very first unibody Fiat automobile. This moderately sized vehicle was offered as a 4-door saloon or a 2-door cabriolet and was available in the interesting beige color above.

This exciting sports car caused quite a stir in Geneva during its debut. The aggressive styling paired with a 2.0-liter V8 engine wowed visitors of the show. The name “8V” came about because, at the time, Ford had a copyright on the term “V8.”

The tiny Fiat 600 was the first in the Italian lineup to put the engine in the rear of the vehicle, rather than under the hood. The 2-door vehicle was produced as the perfect city car, able to get around quickly with ease.

Auto designer Sergio Pininfarina wanted to honor the Expo64 in Lausanne with the 1964 Fiat 2300. The vehicle was the Italian’s homage to the Swiss Confederation at the time and it came packed with a six-cylinder front engine with rear wheel drive.

The “Dino” name in the 1966 Fiat Dino Spider refers to the Ferrari Dino V6 engine located under the hood of this 2-door sports car. Pininfarina made another appearance as the designer of the Spider version of this vehicle that had a five-speed manual transmission.
