Fiat 850 Moretti Sport S2

The Fiat 850 Moretti Sport was a small coupé produced by Moretti based on the Fiat 850 from 1967 to 1971. Introduced in 1967, the Sport was Moretti’s last car that could be customised beyond the usual of choice of seat colours. There was the possibility to obtain trim and equipment levels of great prestige for the age according to the buyer’s taste. The Sport was initially proposed as a two seater Coupé although it became available as a Convertible.

 

The standard engine was enlarged to 982 cc. Due to the aerodynamic profile, it was necessary to mount the spare wheel horizontally in the front luggage area, occupying it entirely. Therefore the designers had to create a luggage compartment, made from a stiff cloth, between the seats and the engine space.

 

The basic price for the Moretti Sport in 1967 was 1.095.000 Liras which could increase with personalisation to nearly two million Lira. In comparison, the more luxurious and modern Fiat 124 in the same year had a list price of 1.035.000 Liras. Approximately 300 examples of the Sport were produced in various forms.
