Fiat X1 9 Overview

The Fiat X1 9 is classed as a roadster sports car which was produced by the Italian automobile manufacturing company Fiat. This vehicle was in production from 1972 to 1982 when it was then produced as the Bertone X1 9. They had a mid-mounted engine with rear wheel drive and were considered very stylish little sports cars. They were known for their great handling and due to the mid mounted engine, they have near perfect weight distribution. They are very affordable and have great performance, with a great looking design. The removable hard top roof and pop up headlights also give it some individuality. Does this sound anything like your experience of this cool little sports car?

Fiat X1 9 History

The Fiat X1 9 was first introduced in 1972 and was designed by the Italian automobile design company Bertone. It was sold as the Fiat X1 9 from 1972 to 1982 but was then resold as the Bertone X1 9 from 1982 to 1989. This car replaced the ageing Fiat 850 Spider. The design of the X1 9 was based on the Fiat 128, but changed the front mounted engine to mid mounted which greatly helps to improve the handling of the car with better weight distribution. It wasn't until 1976 until a right hand driver version was introduced. The Bertone designed vehicle was built at the Fiat factory, but was then re-marketed as the Bertone X1/9 from 1982 onwards.
