FIAT Strada Abarth 130TC
Built to bloody some noses in the escalating hot-hatch wars of the Eighties, the Abarth 130TC was a real drivers’ car that posted better performance figures than even the omnipresent Golf GTI for a year or so. Surprisingly, in a world where fuel injection was now king, Fiat did it the old-fashioned way with a pair of Weber carburettors. Unfortunately the car found more friends among the motoring press than it did in showrooms, so they have always been quite exclusive. Also, many found their way onto race tracks.
