The introduction of the Macchi MC 202 Folgore was a significant development for the fighter squadrons of the Italian Regia Aeronautica. Stylishly designed from an aerodynamical perspective, it was fitted with the powerful German DB 601 engine produced under license by the Italian aeronautical industry. The engine and overall aeronautical performance of the aircraft provided the Regia Aeronautica with a fighter capable of actively engaging Allied fighters. The flight performance compared to the previous generation of fighters equipped with radial engines, such as the Fiat G-50 and the Macchi Mc-200, was in fact much better. Manoeuvrable and fast (it was able to reach 600 km h), it was armed, in the early versions, with two 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine guns installed in the nose. Only in later versions were the armaments improved with additional machine-guns installed in the wings.

The Fiat 131 Abarth evolved from the initial two-door sedan model. The Abarth development involved many interventions such as the adoption of a lighter chassis, larger wheel mudguards, air intakes on the bonnet and on the sides to optimize the mechanical cooling system. The Fiat 131 Abarth used an in-line front longitudinal 4-cylinder engine with a light alloy head and 4 valves per cylinder. Initial manufacturing began in 1976 leading to participation in the World Rally Championship where it won three constructors’ championships, a FIA Drivers’ Cup and a drivers’ championship. It took part in international competitions until 1982 when it was replaced by Lancia brand cars. Some of its body liveries, associated with the sponsors of the period, have become iconic in the history of “off road” motor racing competitions.
