Cars you didn't know you want: Fiat 130 Coupe

It cost more than a Porsche 911 when new, won a Style Auto award, as judged by a jury of international automotive stylists, and influenced car design for an entire decade. Meet the Fiat 130 Coupe, a graceful, dignified even, grand tourer in every sense of the word.
