Footnotes

  • Premiered at the Brussels Auto Show in 1993, the FIAT Coupé was styled in-house at its manufacturer's Centro Stile design facility, with Pininfarina responsible for the interior. With its idiosyncratic mixture of curves and sharp angles, the Coupé divided opinion but like many other highly individual designs has stood the test of time well. Somewhat unusually for a sports car, the Coupé was designed with front-wheel drive, the turbocharged versions featuring a Viscodrive limited-slip differential to help counter the under-steer associated with powerful FWD cars. There was independent suspension all round and a choice of engines ranging from a normally aspirated four-cylinder 1.8-litre 16-valve up to a five-cylinder 20-valve turbo. With 217bhp on tap, the latter made the Coupé one of the quickest FWD cars of its time, accelerating from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 6.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 155mph: highly respectable figures even by today's standards. Today the FIAT Coupé enjoys 'cult' status and an enthusiastic following worldwide.

    Supplied by Keswick Motor Company and finished in Giallo Fly (yellow) with black leather interior, this FIAT Coupé Turbo currently displays a total of only 3,549 miles on the odometer and was last taxed for the road in 2003, since when it has been dry stored. The car remains in effectively 'as new' condition (the under-bonnet protective coating is still in place) albeit in need of extensive cleaning, and comes with its original tool kit. Offered without documents.

    In storage for several years, the car will require re-commissioning before further use and thus is sold strictly as viewed.

    No Reserve.
