    I'd say post em'

    Just my opinion...I'd like to see as many as possible.

    This is apparently the "Club Italia" that the article mentions is currently in Italy, but I don't know how
    old these pictures are.

    Yeah, don't bother writing Guy Moerenhout, he doesnt write back. Well, so doesnt a few other "prototipo kit makers" either.

    Out of the 3 kit makers, none of them wants to sell me a kit. I wont name names, but one of them visits here regularly...

    /rant off.

    Both are cool, but....

    The Abarth car both in original race prototype form, as well as the kits, are far more rare to see. There seem to be Dallara replicas all over Europe, and they look cool.

    I just wanted to point out for clarification, that, like the Dallara, the Abarth Prototipo shares few components with the original. The Dallara used the passenger compartment, and that's it. The Abarth Prototipo shares more components, but the critical difference, unlike Dallara, the Abarth folks were a part of Fiat now so they were more restricted to using Fiat parts, or close resemblances. I would be interested to see a list of what the Abarth shares with the stock X, but I'm sure it wouldn't be much.

    It annoys me to no end for someone to call their X a "Dallara" when it's just the body kit, same for Prototipo, it's a REPLICA, and it's only right to designate it as such.

    They are both very very cool kits to a very very cool car to being with, they're all special.

    I did have a answer from fibercar in two weeks.
    i ask them abouth the complete dallara kit.
    its cost for the complete kit +/- 1800 euro's
    the abarth kit wil not be far of that.

    guy moerenhout have problems with his healt i believe.
    but someone in his family must give you an answer.
    better and faster is to ask thru his forum.

    Gotta know....

    Where did the kit for the white car come from????

    That's the Prototipo Stradale thing like A. Consentino's car. I like
    that quite a bit.

    Well....it looks cool...

    Dan...that's a Dallara replica kit.....we're talking about Abarth Prototipos, nice car for sure though.

    Referring to the white car.

    I think the fender flares are perhaps the standard prototipo flares just
    painted black, that through me off. They are very similar to the Consentino Stradale flares. To me the Stradale flares look like molded plastic in a single piece, but that's just a guess....
