In early 1976, Fiat launched the Fiat Abarth 131 Rally as the replacement to its ageing predecessor 124 Abarth Rallye. The Abarth 131s were built in a cooperation between Fiat, Bertone and Abarth. Bertone took part-completed two door standard bodyshells from the production line in Mirafiori, fitted plastic mudguards front and rear, a plastic bonnet and bootlid and modified the metal structure to accept the independent rear suspension. The cars were fully painted an trimmed and then delivered back to the Fiat special Rivalta plant where they received the Abarth mechanicals. The Abarth 131 used dry sump lubrication and Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection and is powered by a Lampredi designed Fiat Twin Cam engine capable of producing up to 240 bhp of power.

The Fiat Abarth 131 was a very successful group 4 rally car, winning the manufacturers' World Rally Championship three times: in 1977, 1978, and in 1980. With this car Markku Alen won the 1978 FIA Cup for Drivers and Walter Röhrl won the 1980 drivers' World Rally Championship. Between 1976 and 1981 the Fiat 131 have won 20 WRC events in total.

“This car was a real crowd-pleaser in the late 70s when it went up against the Escort. It's underpowered compared to the rest of its class but its high-revving engine, nimble chassis on any surface makes it easier to drive, and very competitive.”
Travis Pastrana, Colin McRae DiRT
