Centro Storico Fiat Weekend Edition: 1983 Fiat Regata promo

The Fiat Regata was the ’80s saloon version of the Ritmo/Strada, with a slightly boxier outlook and a big trunk. The build quality is well described in this clip, with parts seemingly coming from nowhere and the driver looking very excited to see what falls out of the sky next, like doors and a steering wheel. This was also the car used for the Gung Ho! film in 1986, with Michael Keaton. For the movie, the Regatas were branded as cars from Assan Motors, a Japanese manufacturer.

    The cars featured in the movie were actually Argentinian-built Regattas, with two t’s.

    As the car is about to leave, it’s apparent that the rear door hasn’t been installed. And, I never liked the grilles with the diagonal bars.
