|Group Title:||Fiat 130 Coupe and Salon Club|
|Group Description:|| BETTER THAN A ROLLS! |
If anybody can make a boxy coupé look good then it’s the Italians and Fiat’s strikingly handsome 130 Coupé is worth owning on looks alone – unlike Pininfarina’s other effort of the same era, the Rolls-Royce Camargue! A racy four-cam 3.2V6 isn’t as pacey as you’d hope and most came as an automatic, but the handling is excellent and, if in good order, the velour interior is inviting. Cheap for what they offer, but many cars are shabby and so spoil the effect.
If only the Rolls-Royce Camargue looked as good as the strikingly handsome Fiat 130 Coupé, both designed by Pininfarina during the 1970s. And of course being a big Fiat, they cost just a fraction of the Crewe classic. A racy four-cam 3.2V6 isn’t as pacey as you’d expect and as most came as an automatic a decent diesel would blow one away today. But the 130’s handling is excellent and, if in good order, the velour interior is inviting – but most are shabby. Cheap for what they offer at around £8000 tops.
