As far as the Fulvia goes, the 1.6 HF was seen to be
the best. It boasted two world championships and was capable
of reaching 184 km/h.
Despite being a V-four, its engine
managed 115 bhp peaking at 6200 rpm.
It had a piggy-back five-speed gearbox and had great handling
complete with Dunlop disc brakes.
The rear of this car
sat quite high whereas the front was low. It lacked bright
trim along the windscreen rubber but showed off huge driving
lamps. The seats were very skimpy and lightweight bucket versions.
Between 1968 and 1969 only 1,280 Fulvia 1.6 HF's were
built including around 30 right-hand drivers that were
sent to Britain.
Today it is considered one of the greatest of "drivers" cars.
