The Fiat X1/9 is a two-seater designed by Bertone and manufactured by Fiat from 1972-1982. Bertone subsequently took the lead from 1982-1989 and, in 1982, shortly after the introduction of the 1500 model, complete production was assumed by Bertone with models from this point forward badged as the Bertone X1/9. With a transverse engine and gearbox in a mid-mounted, rear-wheel drive configuration, the X1/9 was noted for its excellent handling and lightweight, removable hardtop. It succeeded a 1969 show concept car called the Autobianchi Runabout (with styling by Bertone under chief designer Marcello Gandini) and, unlike Fiat's marketing nomenclature at the time; the X1/9 retained its prototype code as its marketing name. Originally registered in the summer of 1984 this delightful Italian X1/9 presented in blue with tan interior is a great entrance level classic, not to mention a fantastic excuse for a summer of roof-off fun! Having covered a mere 54,527 miles and offered with a wealth of historyincluding all old MoT test certificates, receipts, bills and owner's workshop manual, this example is also sold with a current MoT test certificate valid until May 2016, V5 registration certificate and is estimated at no reserve, representing fantastic value motoring.
