Built to tackle the grueling London to Sydney Rally of 1977 this Fiat 131 S was one of three specially prepared by Abarth to enter the race. Covering 30,000 km through some of the most challenging terrain of Europe, Asia and Australia this was a race that took no prisoners. It was an endurance race that tested drivers grit and cars toughness.
This specific car won its class and finished in 15th place overall with drivers Robert Neyret and Marianne Hoepfner.
The French team not only showed what diesel cars were capable of at the time but also provided Fiat with excellent publicity resulting in the launching of the production 131 model a couple months later.
