The Michael Schumacher Fiat Stilo special series made its debut at the Paris Motor Show in 2004.
Built in limited numbers to celebrate Michael Schumacher’s seventh F1 World Championship victory and also the fifth consecutive driver’s championship for Ferrari, there’s a lot to like about this rare and super-hot hatch nicknamed the Red Devil.
From its gargling 2.4 litre, racy 170hp 20-valve powerplant, limited edition numbered plaque and Schumacher monographed badging everywhere, to the aptly named Rosso Corsa paintwork, Zender sports body-kit, 17 inch alloy wheels with low profile tyres and lavish interior with competition pedal set, push-button start, white instruments, perforated leather bucket seats, leather multi-function steering wheel and gear lever this ultra-collectible hot hatch is as much fun as you can have on 4 wheels.
Travelled just 25,600 original kilometres and presented in absolutely mint out of the box original condition, this Fiat Club Concours winning 2005 Fiat Stilo Schumacher Edition is believed to be the only car of its kind in the country.
Never sold new in Australia and unable to be imported, this car landed here with its avid enthusiast and Fiat Club member owner as a personal import from its delivery country, Singapore in 2009.
Methodically maintained since new, inside and out this car is in time-warp condition indicative of the low kilometres travelled. The aluminium finish gear shifter, smooth leather steering wheel and bucket seats show zero signs of wear. And, the exterior is much the same, the paintwork carries a brilliant depth of finish, all original limited edition badges are present and the original Fire Alloys are shod in new tyres.
Accompanied by an impressive history file including the original log books and leather book pack showing a complete service history with CamBelt replacement in 2016, an original brochure, lots of service receipts and both original keys this rare hot hatch carries all the hallmarks of a well-maintained car.
Ready top drive and enjoy off the showroom floor, this seriously rare and collectable car is ready for a winding mountain road. Like a shot of Espresso at 7am, this Fiat Stilo Schumacher Edition is addictive to drive and the sort of car you look back at after you park, lock it and reluctantly walk away.
