Boxy is beautiful

Boxy is beautiful

If car designers never moved past the boxy aesthetic of the 70s and 80s we would probably be just as, if not more happy than we are now. Case and point - this 1978 Fiat 131 Abarth Rally, which proves there’s nothing sexier than a car designed with a T-square ruler and a protractor. Number 33 of a mere 46 cars built, this rally rocket was one of two cars belonging to the works Fiat France team and was driven in period by the famous French driver, Jean-Claude Andruet. It was successful too, winning the 1978 “Ronde Limousine” and finishing on the podium many times. If you want to steal the hearts of the spectators at the next classic rally, then this 131 would arguably out-do any other, especially in its magnificent Fiat France livery.
