FIAT Coupe

The Ferrari of the world for people who didn't want to spend that kind of money

The 20VT Turbo was pretty damn nippy, a shame nothing ever replaced it

Re: FIAT Coupe

Dunno why but the coupe just doesn't really get any respect. It's a very cool car if you know what it is though, most have probably never seen one or cared they existed.

Re: FIAT Coupe

i think it was just dismissed when it was new cause its fwd. There was some serious 2 door coupe cars kicking about when the fiat coupe came out. It has marmite looks and the 2.0 16vt engine was ancient - would have done better for sure if it was released with the 20vt engine right from the beginning.
I will admit when they were new and i was younger i really didn't care for them, i thought they were ugly and much preferred the nissan 200sx. The coupe has aged very well though looks wise, just a shame so many of them are boring colours and not the colours that they properly pop in. Sprint blue and yellow are my faves but nearly everytime i see one its dark green or that metallic rose colour both of which i associate with old people and boring cars.

Re: FIAT Coupe

Best car I ever owned, and the 20VT engine is a peach - a pleasure to have it under my right foot for so many miles. The car also felt 'properly' engineered to be a GT, not just a shopping trolley on steroids like most of my other hot Fiat's

Re: FIAT Coupe

Someone thinks the Coupe is uncool!

That's something it's never been - just look at it, and if that doesn't get you, driving it sure will (any version!).

To be fair though, you could say that about all Fiats. I had a Punto mk2 for nearly 4 years, then when it went wrong, I went straight out and traded it in for a Grande Punto. I fully intend to stick with Fiat for as many years as I possibly can.

Re: FIAT Coupe

Only killed off cos Maserati ( 3200 GT ) and Alfa ( GTV ) were complaining it was hurting thier sales targets under the Fiat Group.

I doubt the Coupe will never be repeated. Glad i have one

Re: FIAT Coupe

I have a 16v turbo in Broom yellow, the Coupe is getting quite rare these days, absolutely love the car and have owned it for 14 years or so, use it in the summer months and on nice dry winter days it was registered in August 1995 so is one of the early ones sold in the UK. Its great fun to drive still very quick even tho its 24 years old and being the 16v engine its a lot easier to work on than the 20v engine, at least you don't have to take the engine out to change the cam belt.
