Automotif CCXLV...

The final version of the Fiat 124 Sport Spider was sold as the "Fiat Spider 2000", for its two liter (well, actually 1,995cc) twin-cam motor.

Fiat retired the car in 1981, but Pininfarina, who had originally built the bodies, took over manufacture and continued selling them as the Pininfarina Spider for a few more years.

It only put out roughly a hundred SAE Net horsepower, and reliability was par for the course for a '70s Fiat, but they sure were fun when they were running, and when they weren't you had something pretty to look at while waiting for the tow truck.
