Fiat 124 Sport Spider
In 1967 Fiat followed the launch of the 124 Sedan with the launch of two 124 Sport models, the Coupe and the Spider. Pininfarina were asked to design and build the 124 Sport Spider and gave this Tom Tjaarda. The Spider started out with a 1438cc dohc version of the 124 Sedan unit, but this was enlarged to 1608cc in 1970, 1756cc in 1974, and finally 1995cc in 1979. Engines were designed by ex-Ferrari chief engineer Aurelio Lampredi, and included some turbocharged as well as supercharged versions which are rare. In 1982 Fiat stopped selling the 124 Sport Spider, but Pininfarina continued to make it under the 'Pininfarina' brand.
