After My Wife, My Son And Jesus - The Best — This is one of the most fun cars every made. Handles like a go cart, a top speed of 165mph and crazy acceleration. It also looks great. You can even take adults in the back... as long as you provide sick bags!

A Good Laugh — Car was light and shifted, reliability let it down but was a real head-turner back in the day

Very nice design and a nice engine

Cons

Not much place in the boot

Turbo — This is a 2,0 20V Turbo with 220 HP. It is designed by Chris Bangle (the one very criticised for his BMW designs) when he worked for Pininfarina. It feels slow at first, but when you reach 4000 rpm the turbo starts and it really blasts.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Gobsmacking!! — the performance is stunning and exhilarating - from a standing start it's ferocious and pulls beyond 155 mph when chipped, as mine is.....build quality is good on mine, even the electrics all work. the handbrake is iffy sometimes in freezing weather but beyond that no issues. appearance is like looking at a supermodel, it is a beautiful piece of styling. costs are reasonable given it's a performance car and is 10yrs old and is quite efficient, but wouldn't mind more mileage for the money. this car is 100% fun all the way even when tootling along - if you haven't had one of these, look on the coupe forum and buy one - you wont regret it..... :-)

Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo — Designed and hand-built by Pinifarina, with zinc-plated body that guarantee 8 years anti-corrosion. Engine: 2000cc 20v Turbo Power: 220bhp at 5750rpm Torque: 31.6kgm at 2500rpm Transmission: 5 speed manual, front wheel drive Acceleration (0-100km/h): 6.5s Top speed: 250km/h Brakes: Brembo brakes with 305mm ventilated disc Tyres: 205/50 R16 Urban fuel comsumption (l/100km): 11.7 It is a compact 2 door sports car with four 'real' seats that can be used everyday. It was one of the fastest front wheel drive in the 90s and it is still fast when compared with the nowadays hot hatches. Although it was not a low volume production, the Coupe is still an exotic on the street.

Looks, engine, handling

Cons

Engine heat, choice of tyres is critical

Poor's Man Ferrari — This car would have better been badged Ferrari. It deserves it. Only problem is enginne heating, I solved it by installing a forced vetilator switch. Beware of tyre choice, it can realy ruin car handling. It still looks good after 10 years and performance are still better than most cars around. Should easily become a collector item.

220Hp Turbocharged engine,  Pretty Car, Leather interior

Cons

Reliability and 25Mpg

Amazing To Look At And Drive, Will Need Money Sending On It. . . .i Warned U! — I love this car, costs money to keep going as it is Italian after all but would never sell it. Handling pretty damn good, performance is amazing for the money. Brakes aren't as good as they should be for a car of this performance. A genuine head turner, the looks will never age. Does like a drink though, only get 25Mpg if I behave myself.
