1989 Lancia Y10 Turbo 1.0 turbo (85bhp) from UK and Ireland

Summary:

Exclusive performance...

Faults:

Clutch.

Nearside CV joints (inner and outer).

Head gasket.

General Comments:

Fastest 1 litre around... Can be made to go very quickly very easily, just a bleed valve will often see 120bhp...

Cute car, plenty of charector and you won't see another one for miles around...

Just slips in under the tax limit... £100 for a whole year!! And performance that will see off most 2 litres...

The Lancia Y10 Turbo is not the fastest 1-litre around. Check the stats.

Lancia Y10 Turbo 1050 CC, 0-60 9.1 seconds, 112 MPH max, 85 BHP and rubbish handling.

Daihatsu Charade GTTi 993 cc, sequential injection, 0-60 7.7 seconds. 116 MPH max, 100 BHP, excellent drivers car.

I have owned both cars, and the GTTI is on another level.

Had a y10 1993, 1.1 i.e.

Had the terrible idea of tuning its engine. Too bad, now I use buses.

1989 Lancia Y10 GT i.e. 1.3 petrol from Switzerland

Faults:

You have to change the lights often (headlight, lights for the number plate and others)- nothing serious, you can buy them in every car market.

There were no special problems, except a broken rubber fuel tube.

General Comments:

If you need a car for the city, the Lancia Y10 is the car you have to look for. It's light, small and has "cart-like" handling. The engine has no problems and the fuel consumption is about 7 liters. But you should look for a younger model; with a 10 year old car (60 000 miles) the service costs become very high (over £500).

Dealer service is just great. They are very friendly and the mechanics are very well educated. My dealer isn't an official (A - rated) Lancia/Fiat dealer.
