Known History

Introduced to market in 1972, the X1/9 was Fiat's first mid-engine production car. Originally based on the Autobianchi 112 Runabout concept that was well received at the 1969 Turin Motor Show, the X1/9 was designed by the legendary firm of Bertone. The X1/9 was instantly viewed as a marvel upon its debut for its sporty styling, compact design, ample luggage space and excellent handling, courtesy of its 41/59 weight distribution. Fiat and Bertone's accomplishment captured the joy of Italian motoring while still meeting strict U.S. safety requirements. The model would undergo a moderate redesign for the 1979 model year, and Fiat marked the transition by producing a limited edition of late 1978 models for the North American market - each one of them uniquely numbered and adorned by the signature of Nuccio Bertone. The X1/9 would continue with the Fiat name until 1982 when production was switched to Bertone. A well-respected Italian model that offered a sporty driving experience, the X1/9 remains a desired model to this day, with well-kept examples becoming increasingly difficult to procure.

 

The 1978 Fiat X1/9 featured here is finished in stunning Gold Metallic with an impeccably-kept original white and Sable Brown interior. This magnificent motorcar was just acquired in Palm Springs, California, and has been beautifully preserved and maintained. Having been driven just 25,384 miles from new, this is without question, one of the most well preserved X1/9 examples that can be found anywhere in the world today! I personally believe the investment potential of this great Italian sports car will grow beyond your imagination.
