Former top model of a manufacturer that now rules a segment with as few cylinders possible. When the status quo was still high, and one had high regards for the launch of a prestigious coupe.
A car with an innovative design, at the time a little 'misunderstood' and very costly, which eventually resulted in 4500 exemplars built. Nevertheless the 130 Coupe served as inspiration for the later designs of Pininfarina designer Paolo Martin, with drawing the Peugeot 604 and Rolls Royce Camargue. Also the Ferrari 365 2+2/400GT/I received the recognizable C-style. And evidently as one of the first Italian cars with an automatic gearbox. The design and production costs did not come cheap, which resulted in a new price in The Netherlands for example, of fl.42000. The total amount of manufactured cars was equal to just one day of Fiat 500 production. One condition a classic with appreciation potential must comply to is rareness, the 130 Coupe receives a perfect score. If she then also proves to be completely rust-free another ten is added. This exemplar has a healthy and original base and on top of that is carried out in a rare colouration, deep dark blue uni paint. Very stylish in combination with the beige leather, which you will find in flawless condition on the seats. The 130 Coupe excels, on behalf of the smooth V6 and automatic gearbox in comfortable and smooth driving, next, step on the gas pedal like a true Italian would and 'MamaMia' what is kick down in Italian?
Complete with electric power windows, power steering, air-conditioning, double stitched leather on the seats and door cards, central locking etc.
Stylishly carried out in deep dark blue uni paint. The coach is rust-free, solid and straight. Never been welded or filled. Also the underside is nicely free of rust and original. No visible traces of usage. Remains damage free. The glazing all round is original and free of damages. Also the bumpers have no parking scuffs
Beautiful, undamaged and clean interior with beige leather on the seats and rear seats. Fresh and stain free carpeting which also has original mats available. The dashboard has no heat cracks. Nice and real wood used on the centre console and dashboard. Steering wheel and switches are nicely clean and all functioning. Note the rather attractive lining on the ceiling.
Magnificent and very original engine compartment. Here, the original V6, designed by former Ferrari engineer Aurelio Lampredi especially for the 130. In the 130 saloon this used to be a 2,9ltr, in the coupe a 3,2ltr with 165bhp. The engine has clearly not ran many kilometres. All is fully original and not botched. The luggage compartment still has the original and undamaged upholstery. Here, a full size spare and the tools and jack which are complete. The wheels are in excellent condition, as are the Pirelli tires.
In this condition the 130 Coupe is a stranger outside of Italy. A coach, that on behalf of the land climate and careful garaging has no rust, a top model treated like she should be. A rare coupe with a rare presence, acquired from the third owner.
