I don't know! Didn't realize they came in black. Was spotless clean, like out of the showroom- how do they do that??

A friend had one a long time ago. His was a limited edition with a paint job that faided from gold at the top to brown at the bottom. Looked good but sadly it ended up being stolen and never seen again.

A few years ago they were going through the car auctions struggling to even get a bid.

I saw the Gamma Coupe at the Motorshow and it was difficult to decide whether to have one of those or a Fiat 130 coupe when I grew up!

There were once quite a few on the UK roads, although they didn't last long.

Lancia Gamma Coupe by Pininfarina. Not a car I was particularly aware of either. Love the Fiat also.
