It’s no secret that Petrolicious has a soft spot for Italian coupes. We’ve featured some exquisite examples, including the Fiat-Abarth Zagato this week. For those thinking about buying a classic Italian coupe, there are options both extravagant and humble. There are Alfa Romeos, Fiats, and others that can be reasonably maintained and enjoyed. This week we’ve selected five Italian Coupes across the spectrum available now.

The car: 1967 Fiat 850 Coupe

Price: €9,600

Location: Kirchheim, Germany

Seller’s Info: Click here

Often forgotten by enthusiasts, the Fiat 850 Coupe was endowed with performance upgrades over the base 850 saloon as well as an improved interior. The rear engine coupe shouldn’t cost thousands of Euros a year to maintain, like some of its cousins, but it still gives a truly Italian experience. This 850 Coupe was recently restored to “almost perfect” condition with a unique color combination. Just look at that interior!

The car: 1973 Alfa Romeo GT Veloce

Price: $11,900 (Starting Bid)

Location: New York, Ontario, Canada

Seller’s Info: Click here

If you can’t afford a collection of Italian exotics to fulfill your wants and needs then an Alfa Romeo GTV is the next best thing. In the realm of Italian coupes, the 2000 GTV has very few downsides. It’s indisputably beautiful, trackable, and practical in size and parts are obtainable. Although not in show-quality condition, this Alfa is a drivable example of 2000s that can be had for less than $15,000.

The car: 1976 Lamborghini Espada

Price: €143,000

Location: Dietach, Austria

Seller’s Info: Click here

As if the engineers were actually enthusiastic teenagers, the Espada paired a 4.0L V12 with six double Weber carburetors to produce 345 hp. The Bertone design isn’t for everyone but isn’t that what Lamborghini is all about? This Espada series III is equipped with a manual ZF transmission and is in original condition.

The car: 1972 Lancia Fulvia Coupe 1.3 S

Price: €14,990

Location: Eschweiler, Germany

Seller’s Info: Click here

The Lancia Fulvia, not to be confused with Flavia, was unique with its front wheel drive, V4 engine and five-speed manual transmission (available in the second generation). The Fulvia has a racing pedigree with scoring a win in the 1972 International Rally Championship. This Lancia is listed as being in “perfect working condition” with a “virtually corrosion-free” body.

The car: 1960 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Coupe

Price: £41,500

Location: Anse, France

Seller’s Info: Click here

The Giulietta 750 was mass produced from 1954 to 1965 with multiple variants available from the station wagon to the Sprint Speciale. With the price of the Zagato and Speciale skyrocketing, the Coupe offers a great value for early post war Alfas. This Giulietta has been restored to “Concourse” quality with added performance modifications.

totally agree with sebastiaan !
in fact i would go as far as to say the best value would be one that someone else has restored correctly.

That GTV 🙁 Run away; if ever there was a car that screamed rust bucket: this is it. Jumping to conclusions quickly, this’ll need new outer, middle (and probably inner) sills, rear arches, rear panel and probably a lot more. Save your pennies and look for another one, they are GREAT cars.
