This unassuming little sports car was a surprise to everyone who drove it. A not particularly inspiring-looking coupé with a 594 cc Fiat 126 engine in the tail might not sound too promising, but Italian ex-racing driver Aurelia Bezzi's MCA was charming in its simplicity. The specification was simple: a steel tube chassis, spearate GRP body panels, two seats and all Fiat 126 parts. After Bezzi emigrated, the little MCA passed to Minari briefly before going to Dash sportscars (pictured is their cabriolet version). Finally it settled at IPS Development but was discountinued after 1996.
