The Fiat-Bertone X1/9 was designed at Bertone, one of Italy's finest design houses, the birthplace of such cars as the Lamborghini Countach, Miura and the Lancia Stratos. It was first launched in Italy in 1972, however it was not until 1977 that we saw the arrival of the right hand drive version here in the UK. The X1/9's mid-engined design was influenced by racing cars of the day, and it soon became the biggest selling mid-engined production car, which ultimately reached some 170,000 world wide.

X1/9's attracted the attention of the motoring press and were frequently described as a "baby Ferrari". In 1981, the X1/9 was voted by the American "Road and Track" magazine as "one of the best ten cars for the eighties", despite the fact that the car had already been on sale for nine years.

The only major change in the X1/9's seventeen year production history, was in 1978 when Fiat introduced the 1498cc engine and five speed gearbox from the Strada / Ritmo. This replaced the existing 1290cc / four speed mechanics that had been used exclusively up until this time. The X1/9 was available in various special trim versions during its production run, which included the 1300 Lido, the 1500 VS and the Gran Finale.

FIAT X-19 1986 1500cc

1985 Fiat x1/9 1500cc Sports Car

Brought  on 19 / 05 / 2005 ( its may be for sale at the right price )

I have owned the 1986 Bertone X19 vs signed addition since May 2005.

I brought the car via ebay, the car has no rear or front bumper they have been removed.

Otherwise still a standard car ive only added a KN filter for slightly better performance.

magic car to drive.

Rear spoiler has been added and car has been resprayed.

This stunning little two-seater sport car. It has only done 57,400 miles,

It was first registered in August 1985 and I bought the car in May 2005.

I used the car as transport for the summer months, then stored it away to be used only on dry days.

At the last mot 2013, I had the carburettor fully serviced and have replaced the HT lead and Coil, Capacitor, Distributor Cap, Rotor Arm and all the plug too.

I have lots of documentation and Original owners manual for this car.

And have maintained it to the highest standards throughout the years of ownership.

The car is in good condition, as can be seen from the pictures, with none of the rust normally associated with these cars.

The targa ( hard ) roof is as secure and waterproof as a conventional steel roof and is simple to remove for open-top motoring and stores in the front boot.

The combination of the front and rear boots gives you plenty of storage space for holidays and the roof doesn't encroach on the space.
