After its debut at the 1969 Geneva Motor Show, the Fiat 130 topped the Italian automaker’s line-up.
It boasted such features as standard power-assisted steering and four-wheel disc brakes.
Hidden beneath its sharp, attention-grabbing lines was a choice of new overhead-camshaft V6 engines in either 2,866-cubic centimetre or 3,235-cubic centimetre form.
The new V6 line was based on the 128 Type A powerplant, developed by noted Ferrari engine master, engineer Aurelio Lampredi.
With its own Pininfarina-penned design on the inside and out, the 130 Coupé wowed at the 1971 Geneva Salon, proving it to be even more striking than the four-door saloon.
It was a large coupé that featured a host of luxury features inside, like state-of-the-art fibre optics to light its instrument panel and switches.
Just a hair under 4,300 examples of the 130 Coupé were built.
