This is one of the few original 124 Spider Stradales that were manufactured in Abarth’s plant between September 1972 and September 1974 in order to homologate the 124 Spider Rally version. Interestingly, it was produced in November of 1972, the very month that Abarth successfully achieved that homologation.
Apart from the rare and most desirable Weber option (obsolete in 1974 Stradales), this vehicle bears the even rarer Abarth-installed performance kit option providing for an increased power to 124 Rally specs of [email protected]
This 48th Stradale was owned by a factory employee prior to being sold in 2000 to a Greek, world-renowned professional rally driver and journalist. In 2002 it was acquired by another rally driver who in turn sold it to its current one, a distinguished rally champion of Greece. Even though it was owned by professional rally drivers, the car was never raced, rather maintained with utmost respect for it being an icon of the Fiat-Abarth collaboration.
