2016 ABARTH 124 RALLY RGT

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.

Please note: the Italian title of ownership is currently in the name of the vendor’s company, so the papers will be prepared for export if the car is sold outside Italy; however, it will require just a change of ownership on the papers if the car remains in its home market.
