Hello.
More information and a lot of pictures (more to come soon) about the Lancia Beta rally car at:
newbielink:http://usuarios.lycos.es/tododelado/ [nonactive]
Firstly: sorry, but the Lancia Beta works rally cars of the 1974-1975 World Rally Championship are not Abarth cars!.  In these years, inside the Fiat group, Abarth was the motorsport division of Fiat brand, and Lancia Corse the motorsport section of Lancia, and they was rivals for years in the championship.
The 16 v. engines of the works Betas are very similar to Fiat 124 Abarth ones, more information about the scarce 16v. homologation special heads at newbielink:http://www.guy-croft.com [nonactive]
A guy in United Kingdom are doing wheelarches extensions for the Beta, I don´t know him. In the web group newbielink:http://www.betaboyz.co.uk [nonactive] (in a photo gallery) are some pictures of a Lancia Beta rally car replica with this wheelarches. Perhaps members of this phorum know this guy.
See this car pictures at:

Yes, it is the complete web address of the picture!.

Hello Guy and "tododelado" (all the way sideways).

Your remarks about FIAT and LANCIA racing departments are true.
But let's not forget that when Lancia corse needed an engine, they opened Abarth drawer and picked-up the parts from there (except for the Stratos for which they oepened the Fiat-Dino-Ferrari drawer).
So, now, 35 yesrs later, I guess we can call this Beta Aabarth-Beta or at least Abarth-engined Betas.

With my kind regards,
Manuel de MIGUEL
IRESA S.L.

I am agree with you about the "abarthised" fiat-lancia twin cam engine of the rally Betas, but I point that the cars was built and mantained in lancia corse home, with the Stratos, not in Abarth-Fiat works (where the Fiat 124 Abarth rally cars was built). But yes, I think Abarth put his contribution to this car too.
Please, Manuel, tell (or better show) us something about the Lancia Beta rally car ex-works, ex-Reseau Chardonnet of France, that your company have for sale in the american Lancia club.
Have raced this car with Darniche in the Chamonix 24 heures?.
Best regards.
Tododelado.

Hello. I have sent to your e-mail a picture of the dashbore with more resolution.
It´s difficoult to buy rally parts for building a Lancia Beta works rally car replica. Competition gearbox (I think like the originals) it´s for sale (very expensive) at newbielink:http://www.colotti.com [nonactive], Limited Slip Differentil are for sale in several companies in Italy and U.K. The IRESA manifolds are for Webers DCNF, the works cars used DCOEs. Manifolds for sale at newbielink:http://www.guy-croft.com [nonactive].
The original wheelarches extensions was made by a company in Italy, today still doing tuning body parts for new cars, (I think today the arches are out of sale, of course).
Tarmac wheels are technomagnesio, the same as the works Fulvias, I don´t know if they are replicated today.
Regards.
