Fiat 130 Coupe
Despite being unpopular this car was actually very finely engineered with perfect proportions and superb elegance with ample room for four passengers.

Its seats were rich velour and housed electric windows and aerial. It had a smooth free-revving V6 motor which was upgraded to 3.2 liters from 2.8 to answer criticism about its performance.

Its power was still fairly modest at 165 bhp but these heavy cars inevitably felt quicker on the road than against the clock.

The majority had automatic transmission with a five-speed manual being an option. It shared the same independent suspension as the Fiat Dino with power steering being standard.

Production was halted in 1977 with the coupe lasting a year longer than the saloon. Rust has been its main detraction and unaffected models are highly sought after.
