The first-generation Altezza was launched in Japan in October 1998, while the Lexus IS 200 made its debut in Europe in 1999 and in North America as the IS 300 in 2000.
The Fiat 131 is a family sedan manufactured from 1974 to 1984. In 1976, 400 examples of the Fiat 131 Abarth Rally were built for homologation purposes.
It was produced by the Italian automaker Fiat in collaboration with Bertone, a design company, and Abarth, a tuning and racing company.
The Volkswagen Corrado VR6 is a compact hatchback/coupe that was manufactured from 1988 to 1995. It is known for its powerful VR6 engine and its sporty handling characteristics.
The name VR6 comes from the combination of German words "Verkürzt" and "Reihenmotor" meaning "shortened inline engine." The highly compact engine was developed specifically for transverse engine installations and front-wheel drive vehicles.
