Abarth 124 Rally RGT - 2016



















This Abarth 124 Rally RGT is an authentic rally car with competitive pedigree, which is also

registered and road legal. Under the bonnet lies the same 1.8-litre turbocharged four-

cylinder engine used in the Alfa Romeo 4C, producing 296bhp and 444lb-ft, in a car

weighing only 1050kg. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a sequential six-speed

gearbox with carbon-fibre shift paddles. The odometer reads 11,250 km (6,990 miles) from

new.

This example, chassis number 3, is an ex-official Abarth competition car. Campaigned in

2017 by rally drivers Andrea Nucita, Fabrizio Andolfi, Andrea Modanesi, Alvaro Muniz Mora

and Roberto Lumini, this 124 achieved two RGT class wins and two second places, as well

as a one third place by season’s end.

In 2018, the car returned to the Abarth factory, where it was used as a development vehicle

to adjust the ride height and ground clearance for future cars – piloted by former World Rally

Championship contender Alex Fiorio. This 124 rally car is currently registered with Italian

papers for road use, while its number plate ‘FG399SB’ can be identified in racing photos.

The Abarth’s white paint remains in good order, and displays only a handful of the battle-

scars that you would expect from a life lived off-road. Both front and rear bumpers are

remarkably free of stonechips, with some marks visible above the ‘H’ on the driver’s side

door. A scratch is also present on the roof scoop. Some signs of discoloration are visible on

the plastic screen of the hardtop. The vendor adds that some paint is missing on the bonnet

as well as the sides, but overall this example presents very well. The light lenses and

windows are also intact, and the five-stud 15-inch OZ Racing alloy wheels show signs of use

in line with the car’s sporting intent.

Inside, the Abarth’s pared-back cabin speaks to its performance-led focus. A full roll cage

dominates the cabin, while other highlights include the carbon-fibre paddle shifters, carbon-

fibre centre console, as well as an Alcantara-clad Sabelt steering wheel. This carries most of

the 124 Rally’s most important controls, from indicators to headlight flashers, horn, wipers,

washers, starter and the launch control function.

Both Sabelt bucket seats feature embroidered Abarth scorpions, and are free of rips and

tears. The vendor adds that all interior accessories are in full working order, including the

multi-function display which allows the driver to adjust parameters such as the brake

balance.


In October 2020, the car was certified by Abarth for its mechanical and cosmetic originality.

Due to its low mileage to date, all which was required was replacement of the brake discs all

round.

Shod in a matching set of Michelin Latitude Cross tyres with a BF Goodrich spare, these all

have ample tread remaining and no obvious tyre damage. This example will be supplied with

its Abarth Certificate of Authenticity, as well as its historic FIA R-GT Technical Passport

documents covering the period in which it was campaigned.

This Abarth 124 Rally R-GT is a rare opportunity to purchase a turn-key rally car with recent

competitive provenance. Offering an entertaining front engine, rear-wheel drive experience

matched to a sparkling chassis, it would be a fine contender in professional or amateur rally

events, or a particularly attention-grabbing vehicle for all manner of motorsport shows and

gatherings. As it is road legal, it would also make an incredible weekend toy for enjoying on

your favourites stretches of tarmac.
