The Autobianchi Stellina was a small spider made by the Italian car manufacturer Autobianchi in 1964 and 1965. Technically, the vehicle was based on the Fiat 600 D, but had its own body with parts made of glass fiber reinforced plastic . It was the first Italian car with a fiberglass body. The car had the 767 cm³ four-cylinder engine of the Fiat 600 D with an output of 29 hp (21 kW) installed in the rear and drum brakes all around .
The car with the elegant styling of Tom Tjaarda was presented at the Turin Motor Show in 1963 and sold for almost 1 million lire a year later .
Only 502 Stellina were built by 1965. This year Fiat presented the slightly larger Fiat 850 Spider .
