Shown here is our 1974 Fiat X1/9 Group 4 Rally coupe, styled in the ‘Abarth Prototipo’ model with classic Abarth racing lime-green and red colour scheme and race ready interior. Believed to have competed in various Hill-Climbs, Rallies and Races as well as being professionally maintained by Abarth Classiche teams and now is being prepared for UK registration.
Manufactured in Italy 1974, the Fiat X1/9 is believed to have been constantly maintained by Abarth Classiche team members, always being kept to top rally spec standard. The X1/9 has also competed in numerous French rallies in recent years and is accompanied by its original Italian registration documents and a valid FiA Historic Technical Passport which is likely to be one of the only X1/9 examples with this type of valid certificate. In 2013 the car was sold on from an Italian collector and since has been imported to our Kent headquarters. The car is now undergoing UK registration and preparation to join modern day traffic.
The X1/9 is truly an unmissable site with its ‘Abarth Prototipo’ styling and coachwork by Carrozzeria Bertone. The exterior of the Fiat screams rally champion with its classic Abarth racing lime-green and red finish, flared wheel arches and rally spotlights. The simplistic interior continues the classic rally feel with its racing specification dash displaying Veglia Borletti dials, SPA speedometer and Brantz 2S trip meter. The X1/9 offer an authentic racing driving position with its OMP roll cage and Sparco bucket seats, harnesses and competition steering wheel with added Abarth central badge.
Due to its well thought out weight distribution and chassis set-up, the X1/9 handles superbly well with its on-point steering and a responsive throttle. Fitted all around with independent Mc Pherson suspension and transversely mounted 1.3-litre engine from the Fiat 128 Rally, sending 75bhp to the rear wheels through its four-speed gearbox, meaning the Fiat offers a lively driving experience at both speed and down narrow, twisty roads.
