Fiat X1/9 | 1983
The X1/9 was a joint project between Fiat and Bertone. In an effort to pass new US crash safety tests Bertone engineered the X1/9 to have a super stiff chassis, which in turn yielded great handling. In 1982 Fiat relinquished production for the X1/9 to Bertone and cars such as this example were thereafter badged as such. The X/19 was a targa top, with a mid-engine and one-time-use popup headlights. This one sports the original and very cool Bertone phone-dial wheels.
