The Lancia Delta S4, The Prototype Abarth


In 1984, the Lanica Delta S4 prototype Abarth was Italian engineering's answer to some of the fastest cars in the still burgeoning sport of rally-racing, which was dominated by the Escort and the Golf GTI. These performance engineers crafted a car that was not only powerful and competitive, but imposing, dangerous-looking, and loud as hell. Its high-pitched whine tore down the track with an unmistakable sound, so that if you heard it coming up behind you, you know who was doing the passing.
