Sadly the time has come for me and my 20V Turbo to part company. I know that many of you would have heard me express over the years that I would be keeping my Coupé forever but sadly, after a lot of consideration I have decided to sell. It is a sad fact that in recent years I haven't really used the car other than for the trips to Turin 2014 and Norway in 2015.

So the car...

Model: Fiat Coupé 20V Turbo 1999 (T)
Mileage: 122,075 miles
Body colour: Scots Green.
Interior: Late Tan leather seats. These are a much lighter than the original 99 seats and have the larger seat cushions too. The door cards are also finished in light tan but the carpet is black.

Previous owners: 3

MOT: 03 July 2018

Service History: The car has been maintained regardless of expense. The cam belt changes have always been undertaken by Roger at Power Italia (Last one in 2015). Other servicing has been undertaken at Italian specialists, Local Village garage or by myself (A Qualified Mechanical Engineer).

Known issues: The only thing I am aware of is a slight clutch judder. A new clutch was fitted by Power Italia in 2014 despite the car not needing one but in an effort to cure this fault. Sadly this didn't fix the issue so in 2015 a skimmed flywheel was fitted when the car was converted to the six speed gearbox. This also didn't stop the judder but someone has since suggested trying engine mounts. I've never got round to doing that.

Body Condition is very good. The car was repainted in 2004 to address the lacquer peel on the roof, boot lid marks and stone chips on the bonnet & Bumper. There are some very small dents on the doors and some very slight evidence of corrosion on the wheel arch lips. When I bought the car I spotted that the bonnet had been replaced with one from an Energy Green Coupé. The previous owner informed me he had bashed into his garage and damaged the original.

The interior has the usual rubber peel issue on the dash panel and some slight marks on the rear side panels, caused by transporting a boot lid for someone!

Modifications: The car has an FCSS T28 Hybrid Turbo with staggered seals, An ARMVAL Turbo bleed valve, Sparco Boost hoses, A Miltek Cat back exhaust system, A Bailey metal recirculating dump calve and an original LE Strut brace. The car is now fitted with a six speed gearbox with a gear knob from a Punto Evo. The Brake callipers have been finished in Yellow with 3G grooved (Fronts Re -skimmed in 2015) and Red Stuff pads fitted all round. The car is also fitted with the Pro-Alloy (CHOD) rear hose replacement and the Pro-Alloy link pipe for the front bleed hose.

A full genuine Zender body kit is fitted along with a genuine Plus front grille. The wheels are finished in metallic grey. Suspension has been upgraded to Brillstein dampers and Apexi lowering springs. The headlamps have been fitted with the LED lamps from the FCSS group buy, LED side lamps silvered indicator bulbs and clear side repeaters.

It is fitted with a Sony Bluetooth stereo unit with upgraded 6 x 9 rear speakers and upgraded front speakers. There is a Nomad dual pod pillar with Boost and AFR gauges fitted and Chrome dash rings are fitted to the dash gauges and heater controls. In 2016 I replaced the Alarm siren and upgraded the alarm fobs.

The car has Three keys RED, BLUE and Silver and comes with a GREEN Coupé key ring.

Pictures: There are some old ones from my old webpage in the link in my signature and also some on this FACEBOOK link.

PRICE: The car is currently insured on a Guaranteed value of £8000 but I'm looking for £6000. If full asking is received I will include the number plate and a lot of spare Coupé parts, not limited to:

1 x Five speed gearbox (Two if I can find the other one!).
4 x 20VT wheels (Need refurbishing).
2 x Headlamps (Fitted with HID's).
A rocker cover complete with crinkle paint to refurbish.
A Full (Original) TAN interior.
An original Clarion Stereo and 12 disc CD changer.

My full name: Bob Miller

Ok time has come for me to step up this sale.

Since buying the A5 and the TT Roadster the Coupé has sat forgotten about in the garage, rarely seeing the light of day. I was, at the back of my mind, entertaining thoughts of keeping the car for the next Turin anniversary but the last two years have seen me and the fiat drift ever further apart.

I will soon be removing the private number plate (That will be going on a future TTRS) and the Chris Bangle signed dash strip. I am now open to selling the car without all the spare parts too, especially after seeing the prices some items have been selling for shocked

So, I'm open to offers - Car ONLY
