Mitzi – new model
208S with a GT saloon body by Bertone and a variant with a Chrysler powerplant was built. Around 32 examples were built.
Launched in 1954, the Mitzi was a true 'microcar'. It was powered by a rear-mounted air cooled 398cc (62x66mm) two cylinder engine with 10bhp at 4000rpm. Hydraulic brakes, independent suspension (both front and rear) with torsion bars and a four speed gearbox were also present and the Mitzi could achieve 80km/h and consumed only around 4l/100km. The wheelbase was 1700mm with front and rear tracks of 1120mm. Production was undertaken under licence in Argentina.
