"Fiat's baby fastback is a real Fun Machine, with gorgeous looks, lively performance, brakes and handling..."
"In 903cc form it produces 52 bhp at 6500 and 47.7 lb.ft. of torque at 4000 rpm. The peak rev figure is misleading, because there is considerable advantage to be gained by running the motor up past the 7000 rpm mark."
"On a number of occasions we had the needle on the big tacho hovering close to the 8000 rpm mark, and on most occasions made 7000 - well into the red zone - our normal change point."
"...Once the driver becomes thoroughly used to the Fiat, it offers tremendous fun. Judged as a fun machine, it has no peer on the Australian market."
