Yugo Koral (Tempo)

Z102: 45, 45A, 55, 55A, 65A, 65AGLX, GV, GVL, GVX, GV Plus

In the middle of the seventies, Zastava management decided to develop a new model, based on FIAT engine. It was styled by Zastava, with help of engineers of the FIAT. It was supposed to be called Zastava 102, but later on in 1981 it was presented as Yugo 45. Examples were made with the 903cc, 1100cc, and 1300cc engines.
After some year the front of the car, and the rear lights changed. In the end of the 90's the grille changed to plastic. The Koral got a new name: Tempo.
