In 1975 the green light is given to the Fiat-Abarth team and Bertone for the design and construction of an approved version of the Stradale “ Rally “ Group 4. The Fiat 131 takes for the first time the name of the Fiat factory where it is built , Mirafiori . Only 400 copies only will be built between October 1975 and…
With talk about Abarth taking the 124 rallying, one might as well enjoy an impression of what might be coming. Behold the ‘124 Abarth Spider’ ... in Europe, the standard Fiat 124 Spider gets 140 hp and 240 Nm to play with.
At the Seattle Auto Show they had lots of cars available for a quick lap around the block. The only fun cars I spotted were the V-6 Camaro, Scion FR-S, and Fiat 500 Abarth. I chose the Fiat because I’ve rented a V-6 Camaro and test drove the FR-S a year ago.
Today we have something different.
As many of you know I do car reviews when I can get my hands on them. This time I got to sample my first Italian car on my channel. I have driven my brother’s Alfa Romeo Imola 33 back when he had one for a blue moon so a virgin I was not. Blue moon because it was rusty. We’re talking almost 15 years ago, and the…
Miatas are great deals, but will adding a turbo and some new sheet metal drive the price up?
So, for the Americans that could not fit in the Abarth 500, here is your chance!
The Alitalia livery would look really good on an airplane.
Excuse the language, but I’ve never had summer tires and after some twisties … shit they grip good. Even with wider 275s that clearly have no problem with 215hp. I really want to go autocross now.
The Bertone designed and built Fiat 850 Spider was a small 2-sear roadster that sourced its rear engine setup and mechanical parts from the higher volume Fiat 850 sedan. The nuts at Abarth created a hopped up version with a bigger engine and called it the Fiat Abarth OT 1000 Spider. Don't ask me what OT stands…
This week I made a remarkable realization: I graduating college in less than two months and will become a productive member of society. And what do productive members of society do? That's right, they buy cars! With actual money! And then, 10 years later, a college freshman will buy my car and use it to transport…
The Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica 7, or B.A.T. 7, took up the styling dictates of the previous model, the B.A.T. 5, and worked them to the limit. The car was based on the general idea of the 1952 Abarth 1400 coupe, with Alfa 1900 Sprint mechanics.
First one I've seen around here (Western Kentucky). Strangely enough, it had Massachusetts plates. It sounded glorious! And there was a young girl driving it.
That's right Ferrero is my car's name, not mine. Read on to find out what happened to him...
(Milan, Italy) After what we must presume to be a devastating computer attack against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Alfa Romeo has chosen not to release its hotly-anticipated roadster based on the Mazda MX-5.
I seriously hope the Fiat/Alfa version gets unveiled soon. I want to buy a new car in a year and it would be perfect, anyone else with me?
Ladies love 'em.
Some time ago Fiat announced the Abarth 695 biposto which is a 500 on quite a lot of steroids. For an unfeasible amount of money (twice and more what a basic 500 will cost you) you get 190 bhp and all kinds of go faster goodies. You lose out on half of the seats (that's what the biposto bit means). And it doesn't stop…
Normally not an adept of bolt-on flares but I must admint in this one, it looks really good
