Then & Now: #Fiat X 1/9
I have written of this little Italian rocket before; but the renditions and drawings for a second iteration have left the drawing board and are now in a rolling mock up. I hope that they build this one. I have always like the performance and handling of the mid mounted motor - ever since the Fiero I got to drive in the 80's. Nothing seems to hold the line better than that balanced compact set up.

Making it's original debute at the autoshows in 1969, it finally hit the US market in 1974. The removable targa top was a feature that allowed topless running, while still giving chasis and frame rigidity, I hope it is an option that they continue for the new model. No news on power, cost, or production date; so at this point it is just a flavorful rolling concept to tease the fans.
