Jackie Shroff was recently spotted arriving at an event. He was seen sitting in the co-driver’s seat of the Fiat 1100. His particular Fiat 1100 was seen finished in a lovely shade of silver with iconic white wall wheels. He was then seen leaving the event in the same car.

The Fiat 1100 is hands down one of the most pioneering models in the Indian automotive landscape. This sedan, over the years, has made so many enthusiasts its fan with its timeless design.

This sedan was embraced as a symbol of family prestige. At the time, this Italian car came powered by a 1,089cc, four-cylinder petrol engine. It managed to deliver a modest 36 bhp of power transmitted through a four-speed manual gearbox to the rear wheels.

Although it was also a popular car amongst family buyers in India, it particularly, in Mumbai, was known for its service as a taxi. These cars were painted in yellow and black color, and this color scheme also became iconic just like the car itself.
