1961-1968 FIAT 2300S Coupe specifications Classic and Performance Car

Fiat’s large car efforts have tended to lack commercial success, and sometimes it is difficult to understand why. While the Dino and 130 had obvious failings, the 2300S Coupé looked like the right product for its time. Styled by Ghia’s Tom Tjaarda, the 2300S Coupé was very much a grand tourer, even featuring electric windows. Its 2.3-litre six-cylinder engine delivered plenty of power and had been further boosted by twin carburettors. However, true to form, the 2300S wasn’t a big seller, and remains one of the lost cousins of Fiat history.
