Fiat 500 Abarth news - Dirt ’Bath - 2009
It is called the Abarth 500 R3T and, ahhhh, isn’t it cute? The beefed-up Cinq is ready to race in Group R3T rallies, a class comprising cars with turbocharged engines smaller than 1.6 litres.
Weighing it at just 1,080kg, it should be a riot to drive. The 500 R3T gets a six-speed sequential gearbox, proper racing diff and adjustable suspension. Fiat says it’s the ideal car to introduce younger racers to rallying without the terrifying running costs associated with the higher groups.
More importantly, it has loads of lights and Italian racing stripes and big white wheels and stickers! What’s not to love?
