Fiat Uno General Information

Quite a successful car as small and torquey. It was used for a one makes championhsip, but it was also seen in WRC events where it got some rather surprising results.

Well, it is a favourite point of me as the author, I am a turbo fan, so excuse some bias. But it is always a good idea to create power in taking a small engine and turbo charge it. Compared to gain your BHP through a bigger engine, a small cc turbo with the same BHP output means the engine is lighter, more cost effective and more torquey, meaning in every aspect you have a super efficient engine. In the case of the Uno Turbo already in standard road trim, you have 105BHP from a 1300cc engine! Since this is not even a 16v, you easily need a 2000cc to find the same BHP and that will still be heavier, dearer and less torquey than the 1300cc turbo!

As well turbos are quite easy to tune without needing to stretch budget and reliability through higher revs. The groupA version of the Fiat Uno Turbo only needed minor tweaks to reach 150BHP! That is in a car weighing less than 900kg! Plus the Uno came with a well designed body shell and good handling.

Clearly, the Uno Turbo may never have been intended to be any number at WRC level, but it is easy to see why people like Gianni del Zoppo or Alessandro Fiorio liked taking it to WRC events and managed to get results out of it that made their names remembered.

Apropos number, if Fiat hadn't invented proper names, the Uno (Italian One) would have been called the Fiat 146. The Uno was a rather overdue successor to the Fiat 127, and still, after the launch of the Uno (146) the 127 was assembled in South America as the Fiat 147.
