Fiat Firepoint (Italdesign) (1994)
Fiat requested ANFIA’s “carrozzieri” to create their own point of view on the Punto, which had been introduced the previous year. And Fiat (Italdesign) Firepoint was shown at the 1994 Turin auto show.
The Firepoint is a 2+2 coupe.
The car’s aerodynamics, which are clearly aeronautically influenced, received a lot of attention. The dome-shaped roof atop the car’s body is fully transparent, evoking the pilot’s cabins of hunter aircraft. The wraparound windscreen’s rearward raked pillar is reminiscent of cars from the 1950s and 1960s.
The car is accessed using the same method used for the 50 BMW Nazca from 1991: the entrance opens traditionally, while the windows open using a gull-wing mechanism.
Because of the central rollbar and the connecting component between the rollbar and the windscreen, the side and rear windows are removable, and the Firepoint can be transformed to a roadster.
