Attached Image Abarth presented a prototype rally variant of the newly unveiled 124 spider model at the Geneva Motor Show as it confirms its return to motorsports with Fiat 40 years later.

Attached Image Powered by a 1.8-litre "bialbero" turbocharged direct injection engine, it has an output of 295bhp and is paired with a six-speed sequential gearbox. A limited slip differential is present has been added too and to further assist the car go and stop even faster, the soft top was swapped for a fixed composite hard top. In doing so, the car's weight distribution has been shifted to become a little rear biased while gaining a lower center of gravity.

To make sure it meets FIA R-GT category, the car has undergone structural reinforcements and a gets a safety roll cage too.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
