In 1971 the VH model was produced which was a real revolution because it was the first car with basic interiors and front wheel drive to be mass produced by Vesuvio.
The VH model was produced in three series, all consisting of the 5-door and 3-door versions with 5 seats.
The first series had the McPherson front suspension and disc brakes on the 4 wheels. The engine was a 1.2-liter 63-horsepower.
The second series came out in 1977 and had the indicator merged to the headlight and had the new 1.3-liter engine and 75 horsepower.
In 1981 the third series came out, which saw the replacement of all the chrome with the plastic and the new rear lights. The 1.3-liter engine was brought to 85 hp.
The VH model was produced from 1971 to 1983 and was a great commercial success with 1,000,000 vehicles sold.
The Vesuvius did not abandon its constructive philosophy and also produced the premium 4C Campania model.
The 4C Campania model was produced in two series composed of 4 doors / 5 seats and 2 doors / 2 seats.
The first series went into production in 1976 and was equipped with a 1.8-liter and 91-horsepower engine.
The second series went into production in 1981 and fitted a 2.0-liter and 100-horsepower engine. The biggest news was the plastic band that ran along the side of the car.
The 4C Campania was sold from 1976 to 1984 in 380,000 copies.
The most important car from the technological point of view was the GTV which fitted the first turbo engine produced by Vesuvio.
from 1975 to 1979 100 specimens were produced, all sold to private motorsport teams.
