Looks like a restoration of this 16vt but didn't catch the mileage...

Enjoyed the video, and it is even a Blitz Blue 16VT!

The styling of this car is arguably the best looking front drive car ever.


Ha haa! In your face! In your face! In your face Fiat Multipla!

Very smart, clean looking 16VT.
No doubt, it would be a very interesting acquisition for any petrolhead in the US due to its obvious rarity over there.
Hopefully, they don't just import them to get hold of the Lancia motor!

Wasn't there a long term member on here many many years ago that moved to the US and shipped the coupé over?

I have a feeling that you are correct.

That would have been John, think his name on here was tipoboy (but doesn't seem to exist anymore), but he exported the coupe to Canada and not the US.

Well done that's right it was Tipoboy. Early 2000s I think too.

Just came on here to post up this video- and see others have beat me to it.

Looks like he is hopeful someone in the USA will take the car-and it will get it as the first one know to be there. Lets hope so.

Made me laugh when he lowered to a whisper to mention the 20vt :-) But hats off to the mighty 16vt-shame there are not more of them around now!

Regards

MM

It's a good condition low mileage Japanese import (88684 km, or 55k miles). Pretty easy to get LHD in Japan but I'm surprised that having the speedo in km (without MPH markings) is permitted. I wonder how many will make it to the US, and in the land of the cheap car, how many people will consider spending up to $20k on one?
