The SEAT 1200 Sport is a 2-door 4-seater coupé presented officially by SEAT in December 1975 and sold commercially from February 1976 to September 1979. It was the first model for the Spanish brand entirely developed in its newly opened Martorell Technical Centre, and was thus immensely important for SEAT. When launched it was powered by the bigger 1,197 cc engine of 67 PS (49 kW) carried from the SEAT 124, which in this application was transversely mounted and canted forwards by 16°. This engine through a four-speed gearbox transmission gave the little 2+2 a top speed of 157 km/h (98 mph). Despite its sporting aspirations, power output was limited by a relatively low compression ratio, reflecting the fuel octane’s available on its home market.

In 1977 the SEAT 1430 Sport Coupé appeared, using the same body, but with a retuned version of the engine from the SEAT 1430. In this application the 1,438 cc engine provided a power output of 77 PS (57 kW) and a top speed of 164 km/h (102 mph).
