1986 Fiat Uno Turbo 1.3

Having gone through a series of Volkswagen GTIs and running an R53 MINI Cooper S as my daily driver, you could say I'm a fan of the hot hatchback. The Italians have made some cracking good sporty three doors over the years, but few have turned a wheel stateside. This Fiat Uno Turbo is a prime example of what we as American motorists have been deprived. The successor to the Fiat 127, the Uno ushered in a new era at Fiat and snagged the European Car of the Year award in 1984. One year later, the Uno Turbo arrived. This particular 1986 model is for sale in Hungary is in great condition and catches your eye with the red paintwork and Abarth alloys.

1987 Fiat Uno Turbo 1.3

Fiat Uno Turbo i.e. Mk1. Very good condition! Red Carpet, red seat belts, nice original condition! A real race car! The car can easily go over 200,000 km! Does not lose oil. There are no unusual noises! Can take the best offer! Looking for diesel passenger cars around €1,000!

At around $4,800, I'd say this is a pretty good deal, considering the last Uno Turbo we featured that as in similar condition was being advertised at close to $10,000. At this price, one could feasibly take a trip to Europe, ship this hot hatch back to the US and not feel like they just wasted a ton of money on a car not inherently worth that much. I've seen Unos in person and they aren't much larger than the new Fiat 500. It would be amusing to see the expressions if you pulled up to test drive a new 500 in this.
