There was some discussion on this Forum not too long ago about this car.
I think it was decided it's not what it seems to be. but I maybe wrong ::)

Its not an F&M special that is for sure. I understand it was modified into this 'Barchetta' by a tuner in Italy.

To save everyone repeating themselves see under models Fulvia,

Special Fulvia Barchetta (for sale)! 1 2   FulviaFiend  20  648   21 July, 2008, 09:13:07 AM

It's not one of the genuine Barchettas but based on a series 3 Coupe with the top cut off, and Coys have attempted to sell this previously with no success at what appears to be an inflated value.

To be honest I don't like it, it looks all out of balance and seems a shame to do this to a poor innocent Coupe :o
On the other hand it wouldn't do for us all to like the same things otherwise there would be no variety, so I hope the new owner enjoys his purchase.

I'm pretty sure the genuine article was more pleasing to the eye than this?
