racy rhythm

If you’ve always felt that the Mk1 Golf GTI was too obvious a choice for a classic hot hatch, we’ve discovered perhaps the ultimate conversation starter and redline runner. Fiat brought the fight to fellow European rivals in 1983 with his Abarth-badged 130 TC. This was a highly anticipated and well-thought-out hatchback thanks to its 2.0-liter twin-cam engine. The name 130 was taken from its horsepower and combined with a 5-speed gearbox. This, along with a well-balanced chassis, Fiat immediately impressed critics with the Ritmo.

This example is set to go under the hammer at the upcoming Artcurial sale and is prepared to Group 1 spec for regular rallies including the Monte-Carlo Historique. A hot hatch with vintage Abarth bucket seats, Momo steering wheel and GR1 Abarth wheels to complete the look.

The striking shade, known as Gelb Orange, resembles the 914/6 GT that Strähle once raced and is a perfect match for the 996’s simple contours.
