More excitement from the Abarth stand in Geneva today, after recovering from the Abarth 124 announcement there was more news of an additional hardcore version…… in rally spec!

Here it is in all its 300bhp glory:

Abarth-124-Spider-Rally (1)

The car’s numbers speak volumes of Abarth’s intent here, you get a 1.8-litre motor tuned up to produce 300bhp, this motor also features in the Alfa 4C and Giulietta sports cars.

This car has been engineered to meet the FIA’s R-GT class for rear wheel drive cars to participate in rally events, this includes WRC events. Fiat announced that the car will start in the 2017 season.

Again just look at the thing, it’s simply majestic to look at with the fixed roof, rally lights and rally spec striped-out interior.

Fiat, you have to make a road going version of this car, please please please please please we beg of you!
