An italian Supercar That Won't Break the Bank

The full title is Beta Montecarlo even though it shared only the engine and minor interior details with that rusting saloon. Actually, it was originally supposed to be called the Fiat X/20 and be the big brother to the similar in concept X/19. Not especially fast (a slower model was available in the US) but the handling was always excellent – in the dry at least, because the first S1 cars were prone to locking front brakes. Lancia withdrew the car because of this and other issues before introducing the sorted S2 in 1980. Celebrating its 40th this year, a Monte Carlo is much more exclusive than the in-your-face Integrale in our eyes.
