STORY

"The timeless elegance of the Fiat 130 Coupe is revealed in its simple beauty - a masterful example of the pursuit of perfection in the simplicity of design."

The Fiat 130 Coupe is a vehicle manufactured by the Italian automobile brand Fiat. The model was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 1971 and was a further development of the Fiat 130 sedan.

The Fiat 130 Coupe was designed by Pininfarina and based on the Fiat 130 sedan platform. The design was elegant and contemporary, with clean lines and a long bonnet. The 130 was the model for the 400 series at Ferrari.

The vehicle was powered by a powerful 3.2-liter V6 engine that offered impressive performance for the time. The engine was equipped with electronic fuel injection.

The interior of the Fiat 130 Coupe was spacious and luxuriously designed. It offered space for four passengers and had high-quality materials and extensive equipment.

Not least because Gianni Agnelli himself played a leading role in the development of this coupe.

A very unique feature of this classic: a handle on the steering column that automatically opens the passenger door for women. A classic for the modern gentleman.

Production of the Fiat 130 Coupe ended in 1977, after only a few years of production. The reason for this was probably the modest sales figures, as the demand for luxury coupes was limited at that time.

Nowadays, the Fiat 130 Coupe is a sought-after collector's item due to its rarity and unique design. Well-preserved models are prized by enthusiasts and there are clubs and meetings for lovers of this special Fiat model.

PERSONAL STORY

Getting hold of a beautifully preserved Fiat 130 Coupe is extremely difficult as it is a classic that has been forgotten.

However, it is particularly popular with young collectors because of its modern design.

After production, this 130 remained in Italy, more precisely in Venice, where it spent its first years.
