This 1997 European model Fiat Barchetta was purchased in Japan by Bonsai Rides and imported for inventory in 2012. On arrival it received a new timing belt, variator, water pump and was eventually sold within Ontario. The car was in quite good condition with only 70,000KM on the odometer, aftermarket Recaro seats but otherwise completely stock. The Barchetta is a front wheel drive car, somewhat underpowered for a sports car but handles and feels good around corners. It is also very rare in Canada, and incorporates some fantastic Italian design including flush door handles, fold away and covered rag-top, stylish dash and gauges that have actually aged fairly well, and nice lines for a mid-1990’s convertible.
