Car Catcher: Pininfarina Goes Angular With the Fiat 130 Coupé

Pininfarina has designed some of the world's most handsome cars, and this 1971 Fiat 130 Coupé—designed by Paolo Martin—is certainly on that list. We never got the 130 in sedan or coupe form in North America, but now that all examples are more than 25 years old, importation makes them worthy of a look. This Coupé is powered by a 3.2-liter V6 paired to a five-speed manual—the preferred transmission. Find this Fiat on offer from eBay Motors with a buy-it-now of $39,999.

Nose looks like Peugeot (maybe it is the rectangulat lights) and the wheels look like Rostyle British wheels used on various cars. Have only ever seen one of these in Canada - was told by an Italian friend that they were typical Mafia/criminal class transport (no idea if that is true).  Classy beasts (the car, not the criminals).

In reply to wspohn :

Paolo Martin did design the Peugeot 104, and I believe he was at Pininfarina when the 504 was penned.

I dig it. Looks like an 80s car that came along 10 years ahead of its time.
