Video : Innocenti Regent (Allegro) advert (Italian TV)

Post by mab01uk »

Innocenti Regent 1300-1300L-1500L:-
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxYjCHGzXGs

"This two-minute short, which is playfully inspired by the epic Steven Spielberg film Duel, gets to show the rare Italian-built saloon rammned, yumped, driven along railway lines, and generally abused to within an inch of its life. And then at the end, the hapless test driver decides to buy the way, describing it (I think) as tranquil. As for the Innocenti Regent itself, here was a car that remained in production for 18 months, and that even when tastefully decorated, an Austin Allegro just doesn’t appeal to Italians."

Nearly as good as the Italian Job. I wonder how many screens fell out and rear wheel bearings came adrift during the making of the film :lol:
