1987 Fiat Uno Turbo i.e. 1.4 from UK and Ireland
A classic true 80's pocket rocket
Had some overheating trouble, when at lights and traffic jams, even when I had the cooling system overhauled and rewired by Fiat (whom don't seem to be interested at all with a car of this age), although I told them money was no object.
Sadly the gearbox went on me, and I found it impossible to source one.
This was one of the best cars I had ever owned. I had a Alfa Romeo 33 Clover Leaf, and a Fiat Strada Abarth. The performance is amazing, as well as fuel costs.
The turbo kicks in lovely at 4000rpm, and I added a K&N filter, which gave an extra 10 horsepower, some Splitfire plugs and always using Agip semi-synth oil.
The cabin was roomy and the seats were comfortable. It does eat tyres though!!!
A great town car with brilliant performance; it once demolished a Porsche 944!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
