Often overshadowed by the glamorous Fiat 124 Spider, the Sport Coupe is an underrated, very stylish and advanced four-seater grand tourer that was mechanically unbreakable and fantastic to drive. The car debuted at the 1967 Geneva Motor Show. Fiat 124 Coupe was produced from 1967 in three variants: the AC, BC, and CC. Engine wise, the AC started with the 1,438cc, then grew to 1,608 in the BC. The CC was first officially offered with the 1,592cc and then 1,756cc (some early CC left the factory with left over 1,608cc engines). The four cylinders, twin overhead cam engine was designed by ex-Ferrari engineer Aurelio Lampredi. Other mechanical tidbits include a 5 speed gearbox and disc brakes all round. When it was released many of these features were only found on exotic sports cars with much higher price tags.
