The Fiat 2300 was a model of car produced by Italian automotive manufacturer Fiat between 1961 and 1969;

One of less well known "niche" Fiat models of the 1960's was the 2300 and 2300S Coupé, first seen in 1961.

Elegantly styled by Ghia the 2300 had true "Grand Touring" style and panache which often earned it the "poor man's Ferrari" tag. Inside the 2300 Coupe featured power operated windows and other luxury fittings.

Mechanically the 2300 lived up to its expectations with power assisted brake discs for all four wheels and a powerful 2.3 litre six cylinder engine (with twin-carbs on the "S" version). Production continued in limited numbers until 1968.

The 2300 saloon (styled by Pininfarina) is noteworthy as the first Fiat model to become available with a fully automatic gearbox, which replaced the Saxomat clutch as an optional extra in 1966. Most 2300s and all 2300S coupés had a four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox.
