Ok so it's not Pearl White, it's not RHD, nor is it a turbo and it's not even in the UK rolleyes

But it reminds me of the first White Coupe I ever saw cool near Venice when I drove my Porto 20vt there in maybe 1997

A nice example, if you want a "pure" Coupe then what would be better than a pure white 16v NA, I hope it finds a good home!

First white coupé I seen was like you in Italy and in Garda 10 years ago and not seen another white one since. I think its elegant in white.

Why does the advert say Country: Italy and Region: Bedfordshire?

White definitely suits the Coupe, more so Pearl White albeit like Pearl White Alfa 147 GTA’s they are very rare in the UK

Is it an optical illusion or does it have a later model grill fitted with no "black" showing between the grill and colour on the bumper. The grill does not appear to be recessed beside the light cluster.

Can't say that I like the red lettering on the spark plugs cover, prefer the original blue.

Notice it has the "early" logo on the steering wheel, rather than the rhomboid logo.

However, it does appear to be a good example and looks good in white unlike other Fiat models such as the late 1980s Croma or the Grande Punto.

South Bedfordshire?
Looks really nice, never seen one in the 'flesh' although I've noticed quite a few are being imported from Japan. They have the steering wheel on the right side and are usually turbos. This seems quite a price for a non turbo.

Maybe it's a trick of the light but seems to be a slight colour mismatch on drivers door and rear pax side panel. Other than that nice looking coupe smile

Oddly enough, this very day I came across a white 16v while house hunting. This one is in Brieselang, about thirty miles west of Berlin.

Flat white, and tbh I've never liked white cars... I mean, why would you when you can get a perfectly good metallic black? But this is the first white one I've ever seen, so... For what it's worth, it's flat white not pearl, off-white, or metallic.

Was flat white offered outside of the UK? Or have these been resprayed?

Never been a fan of white cars, especially after the last recession when almost every new car was a white diesel.

Yes "flat" (non-metallic) white was a standard colour on the initial 16v models everywhere except the UK, I guess Fiat UK decided we weren't ready / worthy? It was dropped for the "facelift" range from late 1996 on, and Pearl White became available on the 1999 onwards "Plus" model (as a 2,200 shocked Euro option) but again not in the UK, thanks Fiat UK!

Strangely not doing it for me Dave, yet I do like Pearl White.
