Fiat never imported this interesting car to the U.S., but now is eligible for import since it is older than 25 years. They presented the Fiat Coupe in 1993 and it stayed in production until 2000, selling in Europe and selected markets around the globe. The engine lineup started with rather anemic four-cylinder engines.
But it ended up with the potent 2.0-liter turbocharged five-cylinder unit producing 220 HP. And that was quite the power output for the early ’90s. In turbo guise, the Fiat Coupe was a fast car with unique Pininfarina styling. And it was a real head-turner wherever it appeared. With 0 to 60 mph time of 6.3 seconds, it is still quick by today’s standards.
Alfa Romeo 164
Alfa Romeo left America in 1995 only to return in 2009. However, the last model Alfa sold in the USA was the gorgeous 164 Sedan. It came with the famous Busso 3.0-litre V6 engine with 210 HP. With a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of around 7.5 seconds and the precise manual gearbox, it was a dynamic sedan.
Also, it had a fantastic sound and was cool-looking, too. Best of all, Pininfarina did the styling for this wonderful ’80s wedge four-door. And that is what makes it one of the more recognizable cars from the late ’80s.
The Ferrari F40 was and still is a special car in many ways. They built it to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Ferrari. Designed by Sergio Pininfarina, it was a car Enzo Ferrari supervised and envisioned himself. To explain the F40 in a few words, this is a race car with a gorgeous body.
And the performance will terrify you as well as inspire you to drive this car as fast as you can. The F40 was one of the fastest cars of its time. In fact, it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds in street-legal trim. The exact result is 3.8 seconds according to various magazine tests.
This infamous design house has provided almost 90 years of elegance. These are the most stunning cars designed by Pininfarina. Which one is your favorite? Start saving your money, since none of these cars is a bargain. However, they are all worth the investment if you are a serious Pininfarina fan.
