Marketed world-wide as the Fiat X1/9 from 1972 to 1983, this Nuccio Bertone-designed mid-engine sports cars was a hit in all markets. Although based on the Fiat 128 drivetrain, and sold and marketed as a Fiat, the X1/9's body was built at Bertone's factory in Turin and shipped to Fiat's nearby Lingotto factory for completion. As Fiat introduced new models, they "spun off" the entire production role to the Bertone factory for the 1983 model year, and all subsequent X1/9s were badged as Bertone X1/9s.
