The Autoblinda Lince ("Lynx") was an Italian armoured car used by the Italian Social Republic between 1943-1945 during World War II. The Lince was a copy of the British Daimler Dingo and was primarily used for reconnaissance. Its armament consisted of a single 8 mm machine gun. Some 250 vehicles were built in all. The vehicle was also employed by German forces as Panzerspähwagen Lince 202(i).
