The Fiat 131 Abarth Rally is the front engine rear drive car which made a rally debut in 1976 and took titles in '77, '78 and '80. The famous Italian car-tuning brand Abarth developed this car as an Abarth-tuned version of the Fiat 131 Mirafiori with 1,995cc inline-4 DOHC 4-valve engine capable of 215hp, and 4-wheel independent McPherson strut suspension with front/rear ventilated disc brakes. Also, it was extremely lightweight thanks to extensive use of FRP and aluminum across its body. The version of 1976 and 1977 was finished in a navy blue and yellow livery based on the colors of Olio Fiat.
