During a brief stint in 1993, when the facelifted range was first unveiled, Fiat offered alongside the Sedicivalvole another sporting Tipo; the 2.0 8v powered "Gran Turismo" model. With the same legendary Lampredi twin-cam engine that had sat under the bonnets of their performance flagships for many years (see Fiat 124, Fiat 131, Strada 130TC, Lancia Beta, etc), it produced 115 old-school bhp and matched the 0-60 times of the 8v Golf GTI. Spec and equipment closely resembled the Sedici', with similar wheels (albeit 14" and not diamond cut finish), electric windows, an optional electric sunroof, headlight washers and much more.
Less than 100 of these models were seemingly sold in RHD form (sales figures as low as 61 are recorded) and this one we've discovered appears to be the very last survivor. According to DVLA statistics, there is just one Tipo 2.0 IE GT left in the UK - and this is it!
It has covered just 80k miles and was owned by the same lady from 1995 (when it was just two years old) until we unearthed it having sat unused for a while, some 23 years later. Finished in Shiraz Red, it's largely original and the interior is in absolutely incredible condition. The pictures below are as it arrived to us, we haven't given it so much as a hoover out - there is no doubt this has been cherished. We will treat it to some titivation, go through it with a fine-toothed comb and get it into the condition it deserves to be, being the last of its species!
