Fiat Barchetta is currently a very affordable open two-seater. Compared with other popular open two-seater, like the Mazda MX-5, this car is something rare on the road and makes the Italian design certainly enough admiration.
The convertible was based on the Fiat Punto, but it got a 1.8L engine along with 131pk. Top speed shifted to 200km / h and acceleration to 100 was completed within rating 8.7 seconds. The exterior of the car was designed by Andrea Zapatinas, the interior by Peter Davis. This design decision was made to change the color of the exterior back The car was produced from February 1995. Initially, the car only comes in orange, but did not sell too well this. Other colors in the range, however, did the sale quickly revived. The name chosen Barchetta incidentally means ?? small boat ?? in Italian and comes for the first time in 1948, in a Ferrari from that time.
From 1995 to 2005 the Barchetta was built, with a break between 2002 and 2004. This was caused by the bankruptcy of the company that did the assembly of the Barchetta. Eventually the model in 2001 still get some small adjustments, such as a third brake light. There would be sold as ?? s 650 units in the Netherlands, the purchase price was around the price asked for a Mazda MX-5. The model was even slightly cheaper than the 1.8L version of the MX5.
Another item which need extra check, the soft top or hardtop. The soft top can of cracks when not folded properly. This can be checked if the wrong cap in the closed position. Check here for holes and cracks. The connections must be properly controlled, this can also sometimes fail at something. The first hardtops were not made of metal but made of plastic. The problem of these types is that water can flow in the trunk. Note also extra care at hardtops that are not originally shipped from the factory to the car; namely that do not fit perfectly in the car.
