1989 JR120 ISUZU PIAZZA XE ‘HANDLING BY LOTUS’ TURBO RWD LIFTBACK COUPE.
This beautiful (some say quirky looking) Giorgetto Giugiaro designed vehicle is the 1st Generation Isuzu Piazza. It was Isuzu’s RWD sports coupe for the 1980s. It was built in Japan from 1980-
1990. The lineup consisted of the IRMSCHER, XE Handling by Lotus & the XE LIMITED Handling by Lotus.
The Piazza had quite a few unique features such as partially concealed headlights, a single blade front windshield wiper, and integrated steering wheel adjustment, which also moved the instrument cluster, as well as the wiper controls, fan/air conditioning controls and exterior lighting controls which are installed just behind the steering wheel on either side.
The XE ‘Handing by Lotus’ had different suspension tuning compared to other variants in the Piazza lineup, as well as unique alloy wheels. They were also sold in Australia in the late 1980s as the Holden Piazza.
This particular vehicle is in great condition for its age, is a very comfortable and easy to drive car and is perfect for those long trips down the highway, while at the same time, is just as at ease around town for doing the shopping, going to restaurants or whatever else you may wish to do.
The Piazza is powered by the 2.0 Litre 4ZC1-T SOHC turbo 4 cylinder multi-point fuel injected petrol engine, that is mated to a 4 speed automatic transmission, which drives the rear wheels
