Fiat 131 Superstrada

Post by IndianaJones » Tue 16 Dec 2014, 10:38

Found this in the January 1980 issue of Car Magazine.

Fiat 131 Superstrada

Numbered limited edition, according to the report.
Don't know if it was only available in SA?

Here's the CAR road test of the car.

It made about 14kW less power, though, than its "Fiat 131 2000 Racing" sibling, tested a year earlier in 1979...this, I believe, is the one to have. It was even quicker, in acceleration and top end, than both the Cortina 3.0S and subsequent XR6!

I also have the test of the 2000 Racing for any interested Fiat fans :mrgreen:

All the Fiat CAR tests and articles I have scanned and posted on the Fiat forum.

http://www.fiatownerssa.co.za

Production planning was rumoured to be 300 units. Later reports was that 200 will be produced. Looking at the Auto data digest just over 100 was registered. How many was made is not clear. They were produced just before Fiat left. I havent seen a numbering plate on any Superstrada's.

There is currently one for sale - havent seen one for sale for a long time.

I had one just before I bought my 131 Racing, the Superstrada was a great car. Not many left, probably less than 30 cars.
