Alfa also built the R4 under licence for a while.9883_31.jpg.a66511af44c5ec1eff38487c9b1468db.jpg9883_11.jpg.eeafb0b200e0262042a2748e00e3bedb.jpg9883_10.jpg.45b2cee780f1de5fa2de8784e0f0adbc.jpg

I didn't realize it, but they actually built 41000 of these over two years, then the tax policy of the Italian government changed, so they stopped production. My suspicion would be that Fiat leaned on the government to do that, as they have always had a lot of political influence. And for all the appeal of the Fiat 500 and 600, the R4 is a far superior car for every day use and practicality than either of them. In fact it's probably the best of all the "people's cars."So Fiat would be looking at a large loss of sales if production had continued.
