1971 Simca 1200S Bertone Coupe

Description

While not initially a performance car, by the end of its run the 1200 S Coupé in particular was starting to gain appreciation as a great-looking sports car that finally had the guts to delight enthusiastic drivers. The lovely shaped, all-steel and self-supporting body was built, just like the 1000 Coupé by the Italian master Bertone. His factory built this piece of Italian body artwork on a platform of the normal Simca 1000 coach. Because of capacity problems in the Simca factory at Poissy in France, the production of the Simca 1200 S Coupe went in 1970 to the NEKAF factory in Rotterdam, Holland. So Simca shipped the technical components and interior parts from Poissy.

This particular Simca was sold new in Italy and remained in the Ravenna area until only last year. The 1200 S being the much rarer and more powerful version of the 1200 and 1000 Simca, this wonderful Bertone styled sports coupe would grace any significant collection.
