It was since only maintained and moved for maintenance purposes with only 140km more… Special features include the trip speedometer, and an aluminium-spoked sports steering wheel. swiveling seats, which rotated outwards to facilitate ingress and egress. Model description Fiat 1200 was the name of three distinct models all based on Fiat 100 mechanicals. The first two were introduced in 1957, and replaced the TV (Turismo Veloce) variants at the top of the Fiat 100 range : the 1220 Granluce, an upmarket small four-door saloon derived from the 1100, and the 1200 Spyder, an update of the previous 1100 TV Trasformabile 2-door roadster. The 1200 Granluce was discontinued in 1961 when larger Fiat saloons were introduced, while the 1200 Trasformabile/Spyder was replaced in 1959 by the 1200 Cabriolet, a Pininfarina design, later developed into the 1200 and 1500 Cabriolets. At the 1957 Turin Motor Show, alongside the Granluce saloon, Fiat also introduced the 1200 TV Trasformabile two-seater roadster. It was an updated Fiat 1100 TV Trasformabile using the 1200 engine, and it was called the 1220 Spider in export markets. Exterior changes from the earlier model were minimal, and included new front and rear bumpers with taller over-riders moved further inboards. Inside there was a strip speedometer, and the saloon's steering wheel replaced the wood-rimmed, aluminium-spoked one of the Trasformabile. A novelty feature were swiveling seats, which rotated outwards to facilitate ingress and egress. In 1959 the Spyder was replaced by the Pininfarina-designed 1200 Cabriolet.

Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino (FIAT till dig och jag) grundades av Giovanni Agnelli 1899. Deras första bil 3 ½ CV hade en stark resembledence till samtida Benz, var bara 25 exempel byggt. Vid 1910 Fiat hade etablerat sig som Italias största biltillverkare och expanderade till USA, där en ny fabrik byggdes i Poughkeepsie, NY.
På den tiden var Fiat bilar stora och lyxiga pråmar för de rika eller skällande galna racerbilar som S76, Vilddjuret i Turin, med dess 290HP 28,5-liters fyrcylindrig motor.
Dock är idag Fiat bättre reknown för sina små symphatic folk bärare, Topolino, 500 "Cinquecento" och 600.
