The car was first registered on 02.01.1989 by Abarth as a light chassis (asphalt) for the Monte Carlo rally. The car was at that time in 8V Martini Racing configuration and had race number 6 for the Monte-Carlo race with Aurio/Occelli. The car cross the finish line in 2nd position at 6.27 second of Miki Biasion.
The car went directly to Reparto Esperienza where it became the very first car modified to receive the 16V engine, last evolution of the progetto SE044. The new technical requirements and the high level of competition implied that the engineers developed a new power unit able to provide an output above 350 horse power.
As a matter of fact, the birth of SE045 ( 16V project) , the new Red Martini design was chosen.
All 7 cars that were used by Reparto Esperienze had that red Martini livery.

The car condition is just exceptional. The red coloration including the stickers are there and original. The car was never re-painted nor touched.
