The Italian machinery works named Innocenti was originally established by Ferdinando Innocenti in 1920.
After World War II, the company was famous for many years for Lambretta scooters. From 1961 to 1976 Innocenti built the BMC (later British Leyland) Mini with 998cc and 1275cc engines under licence, following with other models, including the Regent (Allegro), with engines up to 1485cc. 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 1976, the company 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 998cc and 1275cc engines. Later models from 1983 used 993 cc engines made by Daihatsu of Japan.
