1995 Fiat Coupé.jpg

Fiat Coupé (Progetto 175/FACA/FACB/175AX). 1994–2000 (prod. 70,000 approx.). 2-door coupé. F/F, 1747, 1995 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 1995 cm³ (I5 DOHC). In a postmodern mood, officially the Coupé Fiat, one of Fiat’s numerous design-led models of the mid-1990s, encouraged by boss Paolo Cantarella. Shown at Bruxelles 1993. Built on a Fiat Tipo (160) platform. Led by American designer Chris Bangle, with exterior by Centro Stile (Nevio de Giusto and Peter Davis), Pininfarina having designed the interior. Pininfarina also built the cars, with roughly half the production for the domestic market. Controversial wheel arch slashes, one of Bangle’s contributions. Retro touches, including the interior and alloy petrol cap. Delta Integrale 2·0 for flagship initially, with 190 PS and traction control; replaced in 1996 by five-cylinder, the turbo version developing 220 PS, the fastest production Fiat at the time. Very good handling.

Manufacturing location: San Giorgio Canavese, Torino, Italy

Marque: Fiat
