In 1993 Fiat again entered a sector of the car market in which they once were world famous: the class of sports cars based on mass production models. The Coupé Fiat was built on the Tipo 2 platform which was also used for the Fiat Tipo, Tempra, Lancia Dedra, and Alfa Romeo 155. The design was made by Fiat Centro Style and the car was manufactured by Pininfarina. The wonderful design was inspired by competition cars with details like the faired head lamps, slashed wheel arches, the exposed aluminium fuel filler, the small rear lights and the dashboard panel in body colour. The introduction model was the top spec 190 HP 2.0 i.e. Turbo 16V with ABS and a Viscodrive differential as standard equipment. In 1996 the revised model saw the light of day. The modifications were only to be found in the mechanical department. Now the Coupé fiat featured a two litre, five-cylinder, 20 valve engine in naturally aspirated or turbocharged form. The maximum, power was increased to a stunning 220 HP. The car was also given a high tech Brembo brake system with aluminium callipers. In 1998 a ‘Limited Edition’ model was introduced which was fitted with a 6-speed close-ratio gearbox. In March 1999, the Limited Edition was replaced by the Turbo Plus model.
