Fiat no longer supplies internal parts for these and has superseded them with welded assemblies for replacement. The program also tested the specially developed adhesives and techniques used to assemble bodyshell components. Optional full-width rear decklid spoiler available. But Fiat decided to concentrate on its new mass market mid-range car the 131 and the Prototipo project was quietly side lined. The bolt-on kit in contrast featured replacement front and rear integrated bumper sections that were moulded to blend with the standard wings. Our typical reply is that almost anything is possible but that some combinations are not very practical. This car was showed at the 1969 Torino Car Exhibition.
