The Fiat Barchetta roadster, pronounced 'bar-KET-ta' and which in Italian means 'little boat', was developed between 1990 and 1994 with the project name `Tipo B Spider 176' by Andreas Zapatinas and Alessandro Cavazza under the supervision of Peter Barrett Davis and other car designers at the Fiat Centro Stile (albeit the prototyping being carried out by Stola). Produced from February 1995 to June 2005, the Barchetta was based on the chassis of the Mark 1 Fiat Punto with a 130bhp / 121lbft 1.8 litre `twin-cam' petrol engine featuring variable camshaft timing. Weighing in at 1056 kg (2328 lb) without air conditioning, the Barchetta could accelerate from 0-60mph in 8.7 seconds and touch 124mph.
This strikingly bodied little Fiat sports car is a 1995 example of the Fiat Barchetta. With what is surely a limited specification Midnight Blue Metallic with red soft-top variant, any new owner is destined to possess some exclusivity. They were only produced in left-hand drive, but officially sold through UK Fiat dealers. This Barchetta is offered with just c.102,500km (c.63,000 miles) recorded on the odometer and presents as a well-cared for example of the marque, with extensive service history and just 2 former keepers are shown on HPI. It is expected to be in the possession of 12 months MOT at the time of sale.
