One of the most surprising announcements at the Geneva Motor Show didn't have anything to do with a hypercar. It was Abarth's announcement that the company would bring the famed 124 nameplate back to the dirt with the 124 Rally. The car has been absent from competition for forty years and now returns to the stage with a powerful new entry.
The 124 Rally will boast a whole array of performance developments from the Abarth Racing Team. That includes a 300-hp direct injection turbo engine, rear-wheel-drive with self-locking differential, 4-way adjustable dampers, six-speed sequential gearbox, and a fixed composite hard top. Oh, and how good does it look with a fixed top? Here's hoping the option is available on the production Abarth sooner rather than later.
