Fiat X1/9, Bertone X1/9
Marcello Gandini worked on the Fiat Project X1/9, exhibiting the car as the Autobianchi A112 Runabout at 1969 Motor Shows using the rear-mounted engine and transmission from a A Fiat 128. Bertone put the X1/9 into production in 1972, now with Fiat badges on and it sold in parallel with other Fiat Spiders of the period. At launch the X1/9 had a 1290cc engine, but from 1979 a 1498cc engine was offered. Production ended in 1989, and from 1982 cars were badged as ' Bertone ' instead of 'Fiat'.
