1998 Fiat 20 Valve Turbo Coupe for Sale
An exceptional and original example of a rare 1998 Fiat 20 Valve Turbo Coupe in Portofino Blue with dark grey/black cloth interior and factory fitted electric sunroof and air conditioning. Offered for sale at £4,000.
I ordered and purchased this car new in 1998 from Reg Vardy a registered Fiat Dealer, and have now owned it for 21 years. It has been regularly serviced and has covered just 83,000 miles. It has never been involved in an accident and has had no bodywork repairs.
The car remains true to its original specification, has not been modified in any way and has always been kept in a garage, the paintwork is original and retains its gloss finish, with no dents or rust and only a few very minor marks. The interior shows very little wear, the cloth seats are not worn and have no tears or marks and remain firm. The engine still performs with gusto, the car drives and handles well and the oil pressure shows as just under 3 bar when idling. The car retains the original Fiat/Clarion radio and cassette head unit and Clarion 6 CD autochanger and remote controller. The car is fitted with its original 16" alloy wheels, the tyres are Pirelli Cinturato P7's with plenty of tread left on them, the original (never used) space saver wheel and tyre are included, as is a spare lightly used Fiat 16" alloy wheel. All 3 keys are provided along with the Owners Manual, Service Book and other documentation.
This car has been extremely reliable (only breaking down once, due to a faulty electrical connection to the fuel pump). It was last serviced in June 2019 and had a new exhaust back section fitted. The MOT expires in June 2020. Full documentation is available with all invoices for services and work carried out on the car. The car has been serviced annually and the Service Book stamped for each of its 21 years. The car was serviced/maintained for its first four years by registered Fiat dealers. The next year it was serviced by L&M Motors in High Wycombe. For the last 16 years it has been maintained and serviced by Keith at Italian car specialist Auto Integrale in Beenham, Reading. Auto Integrale also changed the Turbo and Cambelt at 50,199 miles. The Dashboard Instrument Cluster was changed under warranty (due to an intermittent battery voltage dial) at 6,473 miles (shown in the Service Book), so all speedometer, MOT and Service Book mileages after this are 6,473 miles low.
Known problems with the car are
1 The direction indicator stalk no longer self cancels.
2 The remote key fobs no longer lock/unlock the car, you have to use the key.
3 The radio LCD display is intermittent.
4 The centre console rubber finish has become sticky.
