Italian Black Beauty — Build Quality: Had to replace the brake master cylinder last year--not a fun job. Other than that--no problems. Car Comparisons: You won't find anything else to give more bang for the buck than a Fiat.

Europian Classic — its a 4cylender rear engine/wheeldrive, 2 seater, convertable, glossblack, 5 speed transmition very very light but very solid.

Pros: good on gas, smooth, agile

Cons: not enough space for stuf, not good for winter at all

Edgy, Advanced Design With World Class Handling — Love these cars. I've had two. The first was a street car eventually turned into the race car pictured. Pitiful engines stock, but fairly capable of being built up to respectable power. The chassis is just fantastic and the brake are terrific. The car is a bit heavy for its size.

Pros: Handling, handling, handling

Cons: Weak engine, serious rust problems

Bot It 2 Weeks Ago (5/2011)- Used It For 5 Days - Topped Off The Gas For $3.52!!! — I had a 124 Spider Convertible years ago and loved it until the doors fell off from rust! The X1/9 is a super little sports car, great to drive, and it's best for it's handling. I'm about to restore this little prince to it's glory... More pictures to come!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's a mini Ferrari without the power, but with the handling!

Cons: Rust It can have a rust problem (Russian steel made these cars famous)

says:
Great little car, owned in 90-91, I had no problems for a ten year car, not sure how they hold up over the long term. Lack of power, but nimble car, has a lot more storage for luggage than one would expect. Very tight fit in the cabin.

Bertone X-1/9 By Justin

This car is a blast to drive, if you have the personality for it. It's a little sluggish, with only a 1.5 liter putting out 75bhp (US spec). Handles like a jet fighter in the right hands. Forget Fix I... Read More
