FIAT 850 SPORT COUPÉ/SPIDER

2-door 2-seater spider, 2+2 seater coupé.

Remarkable silk purse out of a sow's ear - elegant styles on unchanged 850 saloon underpan, wheelbase and running gear. Coupé style by Fiat, spider by Bertone. 47/49bhp respectively, but 90mph-plus top speed, character in abundance and great handling - pity about the rust. Few Spiders reached Britain. Replaced by X1/9 for 1973.
