1985 Bertone X1/9

The X1/9 was first sold as a Fiat in 1972, and when they retired it 10 years later, Bertone took up production for seven more years. The X1/9 competed with cars like the Porsche 914, rather than the outdated MGB, and was met with favorable reviews. Its wedge styling still looked fresh in the 80s, and updates meant it sold reasonably well throughout its production. This one looks sweet with its bright blue paint, and extremely '80s "Tron" wheels.

  1. Those rubber bumpers really kill the appearance of the car, but it does look nice in metallic blue.
