The perfect tribute: Greg Carr’s Fiat 131 Abarth replica

Put your hand up if you’ve always dreamed of having an ex-works rally car in your garage, as driven by one of the sport’s greats?

For most of us though, that ex-factory rally car dream will never become a reality, but for some, like Leigh Gotch, there are ways and means of having the next best thing.

In Leigh’s case, the car is an exact replica of the Fiat 131 Abarth driven by Greg Carr in the Australian Rally Championship in the early 1980s.

Nearing completion, the car is ‘drop dead gorgeous’, has cost a bomb to build, and is being prepared for a series of rallies in 2021, including the season-ending 100th anniversary Alpine Rally.
