Can people still get Abarth parts, for the X? And how about getting them in America?
Abarth made hardly any parts for the X.
A muffler was available for the euro exhaust manifold, not a great piece.
Fiat should have made an Abarth version of the X; sales would have jumped appreciatively.
They did, it was called the Prototipo (was canned because of the Stratos and 131 rally). You will find plenty of info about it (and the proposed road going stradale version) in the Internet.
Back then Abarth was a real race preparation workshop, not simply a "badge" used to apply to sporty Fiat models.
I know all about the Prototipo, but it never went into a production car.
Didn't they make an air intake as well?? I believe I saw one for sale in the classified section of this forum. Looked pretty cool!
Exactly... too bad some of the Prototipo didn't make it into a 'Produzione'!!!
I think the one you are talking about is the reproduction made by FAZA.
