Fiat Coupe
The Brussels Motor Show 1993 saw the launch of the Fiat Coupe (type 175), and the recipe was a Fiat Tipo chassis, an engine from the rally winning Lancia Delta Integrale, and a body that was designed inside by Pininfarina and outside by Fiat's own Chris Bangle (soon to be with BMW). The first Coupes came with 4-cylinder 16valve engines of 130bhp and 190 in turbocharged form. In 1996 new 5-cylinder 20valve engines of 147 and 220 turbocharged form were given to the Coupe. From 1998 various special edition models were made available, until 2000 when production ceased after 72,700 cars.
