This is really interesting proposition, and definitely one for the future! It is last of the line, facelifted, 2004 Fiat Barchetta Emozione S, finished in Black with Grey Interior, with the ultra rare Air Conditioning fitted, she only has had one lady owner from new and only 8k genuine miles! So you could say this is a rare find!
Designed by Andreas Zapatinas with model-distinctive cat-fish jaw, the Barchetta was launched in 1995 with up to 6000 cars a year being produced at Chivasso until mid-2005, by when Fiat estimated that 1575 of the roadsters had been UK registered. Only manufactured in left-hand drive, the front-wheel drive Barchetta was the first Fiat to utilise variable valve timing technology. Barchetta owners have the benefit of galvanised body panels, Macpherson struts at the front with an anti-roll bar and rack and pinion steering, trailing arms at the rear with coil springs, telescopic dampers and an anti-roll bar, and anti-lock disc brakes all round, ventilated at the front. The fuel-injected, all-alloy, double overhead camshaft four of 1747cc capacity has four valves per cylinder and produces 131bhp at 6300rpm. Magazine road tests of the period reported that the 1060kg Italian achieved a 0-60mph time of 8.7 seconds and had a top speed potential of 118mph.
