2017 Abarth 124 Rally Test …YouCar
Abarth 124 Rally is classified in Group R-GT and will consequently be able to compete in all international races and most national ones. Abarth is organizing a promotional trophy based on participation in seven rounds of the Italian Rally Championship and an international challenge, the calendar of which will be established by picking the most significant events of the national calendars.
Concealed beneath the bonnet is the 1800 cm3 turbocharged direct injection dual overhead camshaft engine. By exploiting different selectable mappings, it can output power up to 300 HP at 6500 rpm and optimum torque curve, a key element to allow the driver steering and acceleration balance when oversteering. Performance is breathtaking, acceleration is scorching and enhanced by a full, satisfying sound. The project was developed to ensure reliability and performance also in the extreme conditions typical of rallies: ice, dirt, dust, water, heat.
Even the transmission was designed to enhance performance: the engine is coupled to a rapid six-speed sequential gearbox with shift paddles and traction is assured by the mechanical self-locking differential.
