The Fiat Coupé Turbo was introduced two years after the first non-turbo cars were introduced in 1993. Its distinctive styling was penned by American designer Chris Bangle, the man responsible for BMW's controversial contemporary styling. The interior design of the Fiat Coupe came from Pininfarina, Ferrari's design house of choice.

On its launch, the Fiat Coupe Turbo was the fastest front wheel drive car in Europe. And despite it being based on the Fiat Tipo platform, Fiat's engineers managed to create a superb handling front wheel drive sports car. In 1998 a Limited Edition version was offered, this came with a bodykit, upgraded brakes, a six speed gearbox, a strut brace to help reduce torque steer, Recaro sports seats, and a race inspired push button start. The limited edition run was originally 300, but in the end there was nearly 4 times this number.
