1994 Fiat Uno Turbo

When Nissan/Fiat South Africa launched the Uno in May 1990, it brought a new angle to the local passenger vehicle market – a true lightweight that offered bang-for-your-buck motoring without relying on outdated technology. The product and pricing alone were enough to secure top sales but, in a moment of genius/madness, Uno upped the ante with the announcement of a crazy turbo version.

Enter the Uno Turbo: a car that in one blow of its Garret T2 turbo upset the South African Group N racing and rallying establishment – not to mention the BMW, Golf and Opel faithful that could be found at Pure & Cool Roadhouse on any given Friday or Saturday night.

The Turbo was the talk of the town. Miss South Africa at the time, Suzette van der Merwe, got one. And so did the yuppie set and performance-hungry types happy to pay the R33 850 premium instead of trundling around in the base model Fire at R18 550 or the higher-specc’ed Pacer at R22 300. But who can blame them? After all, the turbo upped the 1372cc power output from the 52kW of the normally aspirated mill to 85kW and the torque figure jumped from 106Nm to 160. Combined with a mass of 925kg, local testers recorded a zero to 100km/h sprint of 8.25 seconds and on to a top speed of 206km/h.

The Uno Turbo, thanks to indecent performance, rarity and motorsport success is already a firm favourite in cult car circles and has started the migration from future classic into must-have classic for many collectors.

This Example

Original car however has faded paint and some rust appearing on the sill areas, door skin and rear window area. Rust spot inside the engine bay where the right wing bolts on. Trim is all correct and in decent condition but the black stickers on pillars peeling. Wheels have some kerb rash.

Interior very original and in good condition. Driver seat fabric has split at the join to bolster but the rest of the seats are in good condition. Dashboard, door panels and carpets in very good condition. Rear parcel shelf original and not cut for speakers.

Regular maintenance and replacement of worn parts when needed - invoices over the years show the likes of CV Joint replacement (2021), tie-rod ends (2016), clutch cylinder renewal (2015) and shock absorbers (2016). Good battery and starter motor. Electrics in good working condition. Lights operate as they should but the left rear taillight lens is cracked. No aircon but the fan works. Radio is a period-correct Pioneer tape deck in working order.

Papers are in order (status reflects 'Used/gebruik') and licence is up to date.

Available to view by appointment in Cape Town.
