Export

222_Export_exterior
DESCRIPTION
Introduced in 1988 as a replacement-upgrade for the Biturbo Export, the 222 E was designed by the renowned stylist Marcello Gandini. Among other refinements, it featured modifications that improved aerodynamics like a rounder nose, new mirrors and a rear spoiler. Less than two years after the launch of the 222 E, the sportier SE version was introduced, following in the footsteps of the Biturbo S. The 222 SE was updated in 1991, with new lights, a radiator grille, seven-spoke alloy wheels and a novel aerodynamic spoiler at the base of the windscreen, and badged as 222 SR. Engineering advancements included the newly devised “intelligent” suspension as an option. The 222.4v was very similar to the 222 SR, but benefited from the use of four-valve-per-cylinder heads and four overhead camshafts, boosting the power output by more than 50 hp.
