Much more like it

This is what the Stradale version should have sounded and moved like.

Fit the 1800 in before it bombs

    Fiat/Magneti Marelli did a fantastic job with the Monza on the 500 in 2009.

    I'm sure with the latest exhaust technology and a detuned 1800 R-GT engine at around 230/250 bhp, Abarth would be onto a proper winner :thumb:

    Sadly this is what the 124 should have been for £50 grand, not £150 grand Rally. The whole Mazda agreement probably seemed like s good idea at the time, but it really limits the development of the car. 

    Anyway nough said
