A BIT OF HISTORY ...
In 1974, Gino Macaluso, navigator of the Fiat racing department, was commissioned to develop the Fiat X1 / 9 Abarth to compete at the highest level in rally competitions. The design of the car dates back to a period of great sporting competition between the two great Turin car brands, Lancia and Fiat. Fiat dreamed of having the Fiat X1 / 9 compete against the car of its Lancia rivals, the Lancia Stratos HF. In reality, the X1 / 9's sporting career lasted quite short, despite the initial victories at Rally delle Alpi Orientali, the 100,000 Trabucchi and Coppa Liburna. Participation in the competitions continued with the automobile Tour de France and above all at the second edition of the 1974 automobile Giro d'Italia, on this occasion one of the two X1 / 9s that participated in the race was driven by Clay Regazzoni.
After the victory of the Lancia Stratos in the 1974 World Rally Championship (which it will repeat in 1975 and 1976) everyone realized that the Lancia car had enormous potential and the Fiat car would not be able to keep up with it. Therefore, starting from 1975 the Fiat car practically abandoned the competitions and the project was interrupted. In turn, 3 years later, the Lancia Stratos was also stopped by Fiat, which needed to create its own car capable of making its brand shine, overshadowed by the success of the Stratos. The Fiat 131 Abarth Rally was born, which will avenge the unfortunate Fiat 1X / 9 by winning 3 World Championships. Despite the short career, to this day the Fiat X1 / 9 in Italy surprisingly still boasts many admirers.
