The Fiat X 1/9 is a two-seat sports car that was designed by the Bertone design studio and produced by the Italian car company Fiat.
The monocoque for the Fiat X1/9 was manufactured at the Bertone factory in Turin, and then sent to Fiat’s famous Lingotto factory (also in Turin), where the car was already fully assembled.
In 1982, production of the car was completely transferred to Bertone, and the model became known as the Bertone X1/9.
In 1989, production of the Fiat X1/9 was coming to an end. In honour of this, the last vehicles produced were called the Gran Finale. These were presented as special editions (Special Edition) and were fitted with rear spoilers.
