Innocenti 750 Bertone

The Innocenti 750 by Bertone.

Vehicle Overview

The Innocenti 750 Bertone was a significant development in the Italian automotive industry during the late 1960s. At that time, Innocenti was under the leadership of Luigi Innocenti, the son of the company’s founder, Ferdinando Innocenti. The company was successfully producing cars under a licensing agreement with the British Motor Corporation (BMC), most notably the “Mini.” However, Innocenti had aspirations to create a vehicle entirely designed and built in Italy to rejuvenate its lineup and appeal to the local market. To achieve this, Innocenti entrusted the project to renowned design houses Bertone and Giovanni Michelotti, aiming to develop a small subcompact car for the 750 cm³ market segment. This new model was intended to complement the aging “Mini” and offer a fresh, innovative option to consumers. After evaluating the proposals, Innocenti selected the design from Bertone, which was crafted by the talented Marcello Gandini, who was working for Bertone at the time. This decision led to the creation of the Innocenti Mini 90/120, a vehicle that embodied the Italian design flair while retaining the compact practicality that made the original Mini popular. The Innocenti 750 Bertone showcased a sleek, modern design that set it apart from its competitors such as the Michelotti version. Bertone’s design was characterized by its stylish lines, functional yet attractive interior, and compact dimensions, making it ideal for urban driving. Gandini’s touch ensured that the car not only met functional requirements but also stood out aesthetically, appealing to the growing market of young, style-conscious drivers. The collaboration between Innocenti and Bertone marked a significant milestone in Italian automotive design, demonstrating how traditional Italian craftsmanship and innovative design could come together to create a vehicle that was both practical and visually appealing. The Innocenti Mini 90/120, born from this collaboration, exemplified the spirit of the 1960s Italian automotive industry: a blend of creativity, functionality, and style that has left a lasting legacy in the world of car design.
