The Fiat 1200 Granluce was introduced at the Turin Motor Show in November 1957. It was intended to replace the Fiat 1100/103 TV (Turismo Veloce), the sportiest and more luxuriously trimmed model of the 1100 range. The Fiat 1200 was the name of three distinct models produced by Italian car manufacturer Fiat, all based on Fiat 1100 mechanicals. The first two were introduced in 1957, the 1200 Granluce, was an upmarket small four-door saloon derived from the Fiat 1100. The 1200 Granluce was discontinued in 1961 when larger Fiat saloons were introduced.
The 1200 was equipped with a new engine of 1,221 cc, developing 55 PS (40 kW; 54 bhp). While derived from the 1100, the 1200 Granluce had an all-new, more modern greenhouse, featuring a wider widshield, ampler side windows and a rear panoramic window - hence the Granluce name, meaning "grand light". At the rear the car adopted the fins and longer boot of the contemporary 1100 model 1958. Intended as a luxury model, the Granluce's bodywork was heavily decorated: there was a contrasting colour roof, a ribbed chrome panel on the C pillar, and bright trim on the bonnet, sides and boot lid.
Approximately 400,000 copies of the 1200 Granluce were built before it was discontinued in September 1961, when the new and larger Fiat 1300 was launched. Despite this the Granluce bodyshell was inherited by upmarket 1100 versions as the 1100 Special, and in 1963 the mainstream 1100 D adopted not only the body bot also the engine from the 1200.
