Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1969, the Ami 8 was a face-lifted Ami 6
- far more conventional in appearance than that car - gone was the
reverse-rake rear screen to be replaced by a fast back that looked as
if it should be a hatchback. The front end was generally cleaned
the car was much as before although in September 1969, the Ami 8 became
the first A series to be fitted with front inboard disc brakes.
