The Fiat Uno is a front-engine, front-drive, four-passenger supermini manufactured and marketed by Fiat. Launched in 1983, the Uno was produced over a single generation (with an intermediate facelift, 1989) in three and five-door hatchback body styles until 1995 in Europe — and until 2013, in Brazil. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Italdesign. In December 1983, the Uno was European Car of the Year for 1984.
In April 1985 the hot hatch version of the first series Uno – the Uno Turbo i.e. – was launched as a three-door only derivative. The Turbo i.e. model used a Ritmo/Strada-derived 128-series engine with Bosch multi-point fuel injection, Magneti Marelli electronic ignition and a water-cooled IHI turbocharger with an intercooler to reduce intake air temperatures. The five-speed gearbox was a newly developed 'C510' five-speed gearbox, featuring a more durable differential and improved gearchange linkage. The Turbo reached 205 km/h.
Externally, the Turbo i.e. model featured black plastic sill trims, arch extensions, fibreglass tailgate with spoiler, tinted side glass, side decals, revised front bumper with foglamps and inlets/scoops to direct air to the oil cooler and intercooler. Suspension was lowered and uprated, 13" alloy wheels with Pirelli P6 tyres were fitted and the brakes upgraded to vented discs on the front and solid discs on the rear.
The Turbo i.e. featured 'sports' seats, red carpet and an extended centre-console. Later models featured red seatbelts.
Options on the Turbo i.e. model included polished Cromodora wheels, electric windows, manual sunroof and digital instrument panel, the latter with bar-graphs for fuel level, coolant temperature, boost pressure, etc., and a digital speed display, switchable between km/h and mph.
An option on later first series Turbo i.e. models included a simple form of ABS that only operated on the front wheels. The system operated once per ignition cycle, requiring an ignition-initiated reset, had the system had been triggered.
This two owners car was first delivered to Greece. Its black paint suffered under the hot Greek sun that burned the paint. So the bonnet, the roof and the front fenders were repainted. All the fluids (except the braking fluid) and oil filters were changed and the car has a new exhaust. The car is absolutely without any corrosion. It was still not registered to a third owner in Czech Republic, but the Czech registration is already in progress.
