Fiat X1/9 Abarth Prototipo - the cars

There were built 3 race cars, one Muletto (test car), a Stradale (road version) and probably a spare car of the Fiat X1/9 Abarth Prototipo. The Abarth-chassis numbers are probably going from 23001 to 23005. TOH02940 comes from the press presentation of the X1/9 on Sicily and is the "prototype of the Prototipo". The number plates of the cars were ascending too, only the first prototype had another because it was registered in November 1972, the other cars were registered in September 1974; from the Stradale there is no known number plate. The number plates are TOH02940 and TOL65335 to TOL65337. The cars were equipped with different engines with a capacity of 1756 cm³, 18940 cm³ and 1995 cm³. All cars were later fitted with the 16V-Abarth-engine. These engines were equipped with carburetors, the 16V engine was also equipped with a Kugelfischer injection during the Tour de France Auto.
