1972-1984 FIAT 132/Argenta specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Italy’s reputation for being unable to build good big cars was founded by the 132. It should have had the world at its feet thanks to eager engines, five-speed ‘boxes, crisp styling and decades of sporting saloon experience. But thanks to uninspiring road manners and a distinct lack of showroom appeal, the 132 remains less than the sum of its parts. Only offered in the UK in more luxurious versions, we were spared the 1.6-litre base version that sold well in Italy. Twin-cam quad-headlamp version was no 5-Series beater, but black Bellini special edition still looks good.
