"Confronted with the problem of designing an extra-special coupe on the basis of the 850S, Fiat turned the problem over to it's central design office in Turin, which came up with what is undoubtedly the prettiest mini car of all time."
"Despite the modest size of the motor the Coupe rushes along the open road with remarkable willingness. We were able to maintain 75 mph without trouble. This is equivalent to more than 5000 rpm....."
"In the dry the car just kept tracking perfectly into and through the corners, understeering ever so gently until loss of adhesion occured at the back. Then the stern would come round, fairly quickly, and sometimes with a bit of a hop. Not vicious by any means, and when you got to know what was coming, much fun."
