Smart, earlier Barchetta with Brown leather interior, electric
windows, removable hard-top and OZ alloy wheels, showing just 48,844Km
Supplied new by Campello Motors Spa of Venezia Mestre, Italy in 1997 and then imported, and registered in the UK as many of these were a year later in April 1998 this handsome, yet dainty Fiat Barchetta is finished in grey with useful removable Hardtop (the soft top underneath is under the rear deck) and sits on a set of attractive 15” five-spoke OZ alloy wheels finished in dark grey.
Under the bonnet, we find the 1747cc four-cylinder DOHC petrol engine which develops 129Bhp and 164NM of torque driving the front wheels via five-speed manual transmission, offering ample performance in a lightweight package (c.1060kg) with the dash to sixty taking around 8.5 seconds.
All Barchettas were left-hand drive, even those sold new in the UK which makes them ideal travelling companions for trips to Europe.
Inside this pretty example, we find brown leather seats, electric windows, electric mirrors, front fog lights, a digital clock and a more modern retro-fit Sony Xplod stereo.
The car shows just 48,844Km which equates to just 30,350 miles – uncommonly low. The history file includes the V5C revealing five former keepers to our vendor who has enjoyed the car sparingly during his tenure, the owner’s pack and service booklet showing six stamps plus a hand written entry, the most recent stamp (and entry) being in September 2022 at 48,087Km by T&J Cars of Beaford, Devon.
In addition, the file includes 15 old MOTs dating back to 2001 at 19,102Km and the current, valid until February 2024 with no advisories recorded.
Ready to enjoy these Barchettas are great fun, well made and offer something different to the usual MX5 or Z3 – we love them.
