1982 Fiat X1/9 Review
Baby Ferrari With None Of The Power And All Of The Handling — It doesn't exactly accelerate like the Italian sports car we all think of but it certainly handles like it. It takes 90 degree corners at 50+mph without blinking. So much fun to drive. Rear engined two seater convertible. What more do you want.
Pros: Italian styling, Italian feel, Italian fun
Cons: Italian reliability
