First of all, congratulate you on the interest, quality, and friendliness of your program.
In 1987 I bought a small Italian luxury car for the city, the Autobianchi Y10 Turbo (from the Lancia group), which today I regret not keeping in the garage for my little daughter. I have reviewed all the Wheeler Dealers series that I have been able to find on the TV channels of Spain (Barcelona), but I have never seen anything of this car.
Please could you confirm if this is so?
If there is no program on this car?

Thank you.
