We feature a broad range of vehicles here at CICFS, most of which are exotics. But the Italians have a way of bringing style to even the most basic of vehicles. While it doesn't have a lot of flair, the Lancia Y10 has a handsome, purposeful look to it. Its beauty is in its simplicity. As a child, I remember seeing these cars all over the streets of Portugal, as they appealed to folks wanting a little bit of luxury with their basic motoring formula. Sold under the Autobianchi nameplate in Italy, France and Japan, the Y10 had a ten year production run from 1985 through 1995.
This particular Y10 for sale in The Netherlands has only 21,000 miles on the clock. It is the Touring model, which has a 1.0 liter, 56 horsepower engine along with an Alcantara interior. All Y10s, save for a few special editions, had their tailgates painted black, lest anyone think this car had a rear end shunt.
Nice and rare Lancia Y10. Car has got luxury alcantra seats and a 5 speed gearbox. The car has only done 35.000 km. Car has traces of use but it is well maintained. Interior is very nice. Engine runs well. Very rare Touring edition, there are only a few left all over the world of these. Tax free! Comes with original Lancia seat covers.
For just under $1,700 USD, this is one of the cheapest cars we've featured on this site. At this price, it would be attractive to ship this car stateside. While not as safe as some modern cars like the Fiat 500 and MINI Cooper, you'd certainly be the only one on the block with a car like this. Not only an economical proposition, this Y10 offers a bit more comfort than some of the superminis of its time and would be an instant conversation starter at the next Fiat Lancia Unlimited club meet.
