  • Description

    THE LAST INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW OF THE YEAR, THE TURIN SHOW, OPENED YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). FIAT, REFLECTING THE ITALIAN CAR INDUSTRY'S RECOVERY, TAKES PRIDE OF PLACE AMONG THE CAR COMPANIES COMPETING FROM 13 NATIONS.

    ON TOP OF A GOOD DOMESTIC CAR MARKET, ITALY HAS WON THE BULK OF ONE OF THE BIGGEST INTERNATIONAL CONTRACTS -- THE FIAT AGREEMENT WITH THE SOVIET UNION FOR A 600,000-CAR PLANT.

    ONLY ALL-NEW MODELS COME FROM FIAT. THE DINO SPIDER SPORTS CAR AND THE 124 SPORTS SPIDER DEMONSTRATE FIAT'S DETERMINATION TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET PREFERENCE AND TO INVADE THE SPORTS CAR FIELD IN WHICH BRITAIN HAS ENJOYED ALMOST A MONOPOLY.

    FROM THE UNITED STATES IS THE CHEVROLET CAMARO SPORTS CAR. IT LOOKS MUCH LIKE THE FORD MUSTANG FROM GRILLE TO TAIL. WEST GERMANY IS SHOWING ITS FAMOUS PORSCHE RANGE.

    THE FRENCH CITROEN RANGE AGAIN CATCHES THE EYE, AND LIKE OTHER EXHIBITS OF THE COUNTRIES OF THE COMMON MARKET, CITROEN ENJOY ITS ADVANTAGES. MINDFUL OF THIS THE BRITISH MOTOR CORPORATION LINKED UP WITH INNOCENTI OF MILAN IN 1959. AMONG THE 'MINI' RANGE THEY DISPLAY IS THE HIGH PERFORMANCE COOPER 1275 S.

    JAPANESE CAR BUILDERS LIKE HONDA ALSO SEEK TO ASSEMBLE CARS IN EUROPE TO OVERCOME EEC IMPORT DUTIES. BUT FOR THE PRESENT THE EMPHASIS IS ON SALES PENETRATION.
