The car harks back to a golden age of motoring and brings it right up to the present day. The style has changed outside and inside, though the underlying attributes of Fiat's open-topped sports car are unchanged. It still offers the outstanding performance that returns the following figures for the 96 kW (130 bhp) 1.8 16v car with variable valve timing: 200 km/h of top speed and less than 9 seconds to speed from 0 to 100 km/h.

The shape is still young and highly original, with a few extra details that add great impact. The front, for example, is dominated by a new front grille, an enormous horizontal black mouth that makes the model look more aggressive. This impression is reinforced by a bigger exhaust tail-pipe, more up-to-date bumpers at front and rear and foglights as standard throughout the range. On the outside, the new parts emphasise the dynamism of the model's design and sporty shape. Inside, the new Fiat Barchetta allows you all the thrills of a genuine sporty drive without compromise and without uncertainty.

The level of customisation is further enhanced by an extensive options list. These include: 16 inch alloy wheels, sideskirts, roll bar and hard top. The hard top offers all the comfort and safety of a closed car and sweeps away the notion that open-topped cars are only for summer.
