"From design to handling, this is a fully fledged Italian sportscar."
The forte of Fiat has always been making stylish and practical small saloons. This car, the company's lightweight sports car, proved that Fiat was pretty good at making two-door sporty cars as well. Meaning "small boat" in Italian, the Barchetta, introduced in 1995, was indeed a small boat for the road, characterised by a nimble, agile nature. The name Barchetta perhaps came from the section under the nose that resembled the lower part of a boat.
The car boasted classic roadster dimensions, stretching 154.1 inches long, 64.5 inches wide and 49.8 inches high. The engine was the same that powered the popular Punto passenger car. It was a 1.8 litre inline-4 that produced 129 BHP. The engine was perfectly matched to the car's small chassis, which was highlighted by a taut suspension, and the small dimensions made it an easy and fun car to toss around corners. Despite its FF layout the car exhibited good handling balance and little body roll. The car's lean 1056kg kerb weight enabled the Barchetta to race to 62 mph in about 9.0 seconds.
The basic model was called "Giovanna Due," which roughly translates to "young couple," giving you a hint to Fiat's target audience for this vehicle. The Barchetta was slightly revised in 2003, and in June 2005, production for the little Italian boat was halted.
