Innocenti, an Italian machinery works, was originally established by Ferdinando Innocenti in 1920.
From 1961 to 1976 Innocenti built under licence the BMC (later the British Leyland Motor Corporation (BLMC)) Mini, with 998 cc and 1275 cc engines, following with other models, including the Regent (Allegro), with engines up to 1485 cc. The company of this era is commonly called Leyland Innocenti. The Innocenti Spyder (1961-1970) was a rebodied version of the Austin-Healey MKII Sprite (styling by Ghia). The car was produced by OSI (near Milan). In 1972 BLMC took over control of the company.
In 1975, the company passed to Alejandro de Tomaso and was reorganised by the De Tomaso Group under the name Nuova Innocenti. The first model had Bertone-designed five-seater bodywork and was available with 998 cc and 1275 cc engines. Later models from 1983 used 993 cc engines made by Daihatsu of Japan.
This company made cars until 1992. In the late 1980s, when Fiat took over, Innocenti sold Brazilian-imported versions of the Fiat Uno (mainly the Premio and Duna Weekend) for the Italian market. The marque ended in 1996 1.
