Fiat 130 2800 Limousine
The iconic Fiat 130 was a large executive car produced by the renowned Italian automaker Fiat, available as both a saloon and coupé. The version with four doors was first released in March 1969 and it replaced the Fiat 2300, the firm's largest and most lavish saloon up to that time. Featuring four-wheel independent suspension, power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, as well as an alternator instead of a direct-current generator, it was a very modern car.
In 1971, the Fiat 130 Coupé was presented alongside the saloon version. This two-door iteration had a distinct style and interior, and it even had a special driver-activated mechanism to open the passenger-side door. The saloon was produced for seven years, totalling 15,093 units while 4,294 Coupés rolled off the production lines until its discontinuation in 1977.
At the heart of both versions of the Fiat 130 was a V6 engine developed by Ferrari engine designer Aurelio Lampredi. It featured a 60° vee angle, belt-driven twin overhead camshafts and displaced 2866 cc. It was rated at 140 hp, and more power was delivered in later years: 160 hp in 1970 and 165bhp in 1973 thanks to the upgrade of the engine to a larger 3235 cc one. The power was directed to the rear axle through either the standard three-speed automatic or the available five-speed manual transmission from ZF.
In 1978, the tragic kidnapping and murder of the former Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro took place in a Fiat 130 Limousine, which became black during Italian Prime Ministry.
