New Jouef addition today. Fiat 131 Abarth.
The last all new saloon design from Jouef.
Released in 1979. Not many about, but surprisingly cheap to buy.
Probably the best very late car they released.
Keep watching, I`ve just managed to get hold of an even rarer grey EType, which was the earliest colour available! It is very scarce indeed.
The wheels on that 131 are identical to the Porsche 936 & Alpine A442. A lot of the later Alpine 3000`s , Matras`, Lancia models had these wheels. I`ve even seen them on the last issues of the GT40,Porsche 904, Ferrari 250 & also the Renault 8 Gordini(!).
The main difference is Jouef decided to give them an attractive colour on the Fiat instead of bog standard grey.
Ooh that Fiat is nice. The Alitalia livery always looks great but the yellow wheels suit it very well. I quite like the fact that Jouef put in clear glazing even though there is no interior. Blacked out windows always look naff.
