Autosud racing cars were designed and built in Naples in the late 1950s. Although apparently typical of an Italian front-engined Formula Junior of its day, the unique Autosud drive train comprises an inverted Fiat 600 gearbox and transaxle at the rear of the car, thus providing improved weight distribution and independent rear suspension.
