Ixo Fiat 131 Abarth Gr. 4 Minte Carlo Rally 1980, driven by JC Andruet/ Biche, in 1:43 scale.
The Fiat 131, additionally called "Mirafiori", is a small/medium family car
produced by the Italian car manufacturer Fiat from 1974 to 1984. It was
exhibited at 1974 Turin Motor Show.
The 131 was the replacement for the successful Fiat 124, and available as a
2-door and 4-door saloon and 5-door estate. The 131 was given the Mirafiori name
after the Turin suburb where the cars were produced. Naming the car in this way
marked a break with the former Fiat convention, established in the 1960s, of
naming their mainstream models only with a three digit number, and it set the
pattern for Fiat to adopt Anglo-American style car naming practice, with
carefully chosen names for subsequent new models. Initially, the 131 was offered
with 1.3 L and 1.6 L single overhead camshaft engines. Revisions were made in
1978 and 1981, and all models were produced until production ceased in 1984.
1,513,800 units total were produced in Italy.
The Fiat 131 Abarth was a very successful rally car, winning the World Rally
Championship three times: in 1977, 1978, and in 1980 with Markku Alen, Timo
Salonen and Walter Röhrl at the wheel. The official "works" cars were
sponsored by Italian airline Alitalia and bore their distinctive red, white and
