"Mosca Branca" is a brazilian slang that roughly translates to "White Fly".
This term is used among car enthusiasts, and refers to a car (or version) that is very hard to find in the second-hand market, but happens to be great deals.
That said, here's one of the finest examples of a mosca branca you can find in Brazil.
This is a 2003 Chevrolet Corsa Classic 1.6 Automático, a very rare version that didn't make much success down here. Back in its days, the brazilian market was just getting-started-to-get-used-to automatic gearboxes. And yet, only when equipped on more expensive models.
Cheaper cars didn't offer such feature, because companies knew our market wasn't ready for the automatic gearboxes. People were afraid that automatic gearboxes would be amazingly expensive to mantain, so they stick to manual cars.
Chevrolet tried to introuduce the automatic gearbox to our entry-level market with the Corsa, a popular model in Brazil. But the Corsa Automatic sales were... small. Very.
In the past five years, brazilian buyers are interested in "popular models" without the clutch pedal.
The Corsa Automatic, who lived during the late-90's and early-2000's, was a bit ahead of its time.
This model of the photos is part of my family.
I don't know how the heck it was found, and I was really suprised when I first heard the news that a Corsa Automatic was bought. Nice lil' car, I must say. I like it quite a lot.
BTW if this Corsa was mine, I'd get rid of those "metallic carpets". They look awful.
