So much fun for so little money

The Giulietta Tipo 116 is a low-profile family saloon that allows you to have fun while taking the kids to school. The chassis design, including it's perfect 50-50 weight distributions, makes the handling superb. And the radio is always turned off, because the music played by that rev-thirsty twin cam engine is all the sound you need!

The quality is not bad, if you take good care of the car. Mine has no sign of rust and the interior is as new, no damage from the sun.

For me, the weak spot of the car is the gear box. Not only does it wear the synchros rapidly, but the shifting is very unpleasant and vague due to the car's architecture (transaxle, with the gear box and clutch in the back axle).
