1979 Bianco S Coupe

The Bianco S model was produced by Brazilian racecar designer Toni Bianco and introduced at the 1976 Sao Paulo Motor Show, featuring reinforced plastic and fiberglass bodywork over Volkswagen running gear. Safety substructures include roll bars and sheet-metal reinforcements. The bodywork on this example is finished in gold, and closeups in the gallery below include nicks on the left rear wheel arch.

The Series 2 model featured cosmetic revisions such as engine ventilation changes, hood louvers elimination, and improved sealing. 14” alloy wheels are painted black with polished spokes and rims, along with model-branded hubcaps. Pirelli P400 tires are mounted. Lighting includes low-set double-round headlights, side markers, and taillights sourced from Opel.

The cabin is trimmed black leather over the bucket seats, console, and dash, with color-matched carpeting and rubber floor mats. Equipment includes:

  • A wood-rimmed steering wheel.

  • A wood gearshift knob.

  • Power windows.

  • A power antenna.

  • A Motoradio cassette player is equipped above the shifter.

Instrumentation includes a 200-km/h speedometer and a tachometer with a 5k-rpm redline. The five-digit odometer shows 30k kilometers (~19k miles), approximately 200 of which have been added by the seller. The rear-mounted, air-cooled 1.6L Volkswagen flat-four features dual carburetors paired with a four-speed manual transaxle.
