1986 FIAT UNO TURBO I.E. - 19,318 MILES

KEY FACTS

  • A handsome example of the retro Italian hot hatch, which has been extensively modified and rebuilt for rally competition.
  • Under the bonnet is a 1.3-litre turbocharged inline-four, which powers the front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.
  • The odometer displays just 19,318 miles, which is believed to be accurate, though there is no maintenance history to support this.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • This Fiat Uno Turbo I.E. is finished with vibrant red paintwork with black and red patterned interior upholstery.
  • It rides on the correct set of 13-inch Cromodora alloy wheels.
  • As a part of this vehicle’s homologation and rebuild, a new body shell was purchased in 1987, which was then strengthened, seam welded and filled with epoxy-resin.
  • Rally spot lamps have been fitted to the front of this vehicle, but are not currently connected.
  • Inside the car, a full roll cage has been installed, along with a co-pilot footrest, fire extinguisher system, electrical cut-off switches with exterior activation, and four-point safety harnesses. The original seatbelts are also present.
  • Other features include a sump guard and bonnet retaining pins.
  • The car will be supplied with a full set of spare wheels and tyres, documents and receipts from the rally preparation, and the relevant homologation paperwork.

CONDITION

  • The vehicle was purchased as a one-year-old damaged car in 1987, before being rebuilt as a rally car.
  • The car has been sat in storage for some 30 years and as such, the bodywork is in fair condition, but the vendor has stated that there are several scuffs and scrapes and two minor dents, including on the driver’s door.
  • The interior is described by the vendor as being in fair condition for its age, with one small burn hole noted on the driver’s side seat bolster and some fraying on the front edges of the front seats.
  • The roof lining is no longer present, and the original location of the sunroof is visible.
  • There are no known electrical or mechanical faults.
  • The last MOT was carried out on 18 August 2021 at 19,312 miles, which resulted in a clean pass after an exhaust leak was repaired.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • There is no service history present with this vehicle.
  • Its most recent maintenance was carried out in August 2021 by West London Motors to prepare the car for its MOT test.

SUMMARY

Kept in storage for over three decades and only recently returned to the road, this rally-prepared Fiat Uno Turbo I.E. is a well-preserved example of the lesser-seen hot hatch. While its next owner may wish to carry out some preventative maintenance and further work may be required to satisfy motorsport regulations, it should make a fun and characterful introduction to the world of amateur rallying, while remaining fully road legal.
