Fusca Itamar, I guess most of you already know they were known here as such because their short production run ('93-'96) was started due to a request of the late Itamar Franco while he was the president of Brazil.



Friendly fire was provided by the Gol 1000, with a Ford-sourced (those were the AutoLatina days), Renault-designed engine.

CNG back then was IIRC more usual in Italy than anywhere else.
