The road car won't get the spoilers or the artwork!

The new car has been developed by the Italian car maker's in-house tuning division, Abarth, and it was shown, complete in motor sport livery, at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Officially called the Rally Super 2000, the car will get four-wheel-drive machine and around 210 kW for competition - but a road-going version will be made available, although the racing livery, large alloys and rear spoiler are unlikely to appear on customer cars.

Abarth models will cost around R24 000 more than the 1.9-litre Multijet version.
