Quand j'ai photographié la Fiat Ritmo bleu fin Avril 2016,je ne savais pas que j'allais en croisé une autre moins de 15 Jours après...celle ci est plus propre,plus récente (1981)Mais à perdu sa @passion_plaques (j'ai caché la vilaine plaque blanche)Mais est quasiment de la même couleur que celle du film Flic ou voyou ou Bebel passe son permis à son volant ... Photo de Mai 2016
Il vecchio e il nuovo vol.3
Prove tecniche di meccanica sostituendo il braccio sospensioni posteriore destro, in attesa del Mongol rally 👌💪💪.
La signora aveva percorso quasi un anno di km con il braccio precedente con uno dei due attacchi rotti.
Quasi quanto i km che ci separano dall'estremo oriente.
🇪🇸Fiat ritmo 130tc abarth
197 km/h de velocidad punta y el 0-100 en 8,7 seg pero a pesar de ello, no es la prestación en línea recta o en autopista su virtud dominante. En subida, y cuanto más virada mejor, es donde el Fiat Ritmo TC, retocado por Abarth hasta los 130 CV de su sigla, demuestra mejor la tremenda eficacia que se desprende de la conjunción de su potencia bruta, su relación potencia/peso, sus relaciones de cambio idealmente escalonadas, y la bondad de su bastidor, modificado para sacar partido de todo lo anterior.
Alimentado a un motor 2 litros con culata de doble árbol y cámaras hemisféricas, bien retocado por Abarth.
el motor es de una eficiencia impresionante, pero el Ritmo 130 es bastante más que un motor. Es todo un coche, porque está diseñado pensando en competir, y a ser posible ganar, en Grupo N. Y desde luego, hasta los 2 litros no se vislumbra nada que pueda hacerle sombra.
112mph of top speed and the 0-60 in 8.7 sec but in spite of it, it is not the provision in straight line or in highway its dominant virtue. In ascent, and the more tacked, it is where the Fiat Ritmo TC, retouched by Abarth up to 130 HP of its acronym, better demonstrates the tremendous efficiency that emerges from the conjunction of its gross power, its power / weight ratio, its exchange relations ideally staggered, and the goodness of its frame, modified to take advantage of all the above.
Powered by a 2-liter engine with a double-axle cylinder head and hemispherical chambers, nicely retouched by Abarth.
the engine is of impressive efficiency, but the Rhythm 130 is much more than an engine. It's all a car, because it is designed to compete, and if possible win, in Group N. And of course, up to 2 liters there is no vision that can make you shade.
Sergio Sartorelli’s angular, 70s-modern #FiatRitmo is one of my favorite cars - it wasn’t well made but it certainly was interesting and cool - and good to drive. The early Ritmo was sold as the #FiatStrada here in the U.S. from the fall of 1978 to January, 1983 - although all the last ones were 1982 models, and enterprising Fiat fans could still find a few leftovers - REAL CHEAP - in 1984. At the time Fiat left, it was offering a $2,000 rebate on the $6,500 Strada. Change came too late for us.
In the fall of 1982 Fiat had spruced up the Ritmo/Strada and addressed several quality concerns with a series 2. A facelift gave it a more conventional appearance, a decision that is in the eye of the beholder. But one thing that definitely was better later was the series of #Abarth Ritmos. Late 1981 had brought the #Abarth 105TC, the first twin-cam hot hatch Ritmo with a 1585-cc version of the #Fiat Twin cam, followed soon after by the even hotter 125TC with a 125-hp 2-liter, vented discs, a new 5-speeder from ZF, and lots of other tweaks including a stiffer suspension.
The last, and fastest, was the #130TC in late 1983 - 2 liters of rabbia aimed at the VW GTI and various turbo hooligans. It was faster than the Mk1 GTI, despite owing it’s power to a pair of Webers rather than fuel injection. It could do 60 in 7.8 seconds, which was pretty good for a non-turbo hatch in 1983 an a prime contender in the #hothatch wars. Like all Ritmos, even the lowliest 1.1, it was engaging to drive - they love to be thrashed.
To further differentiate it from the lesser Ritmos all of the non-TC three-door versions were dropped after 1984 and the lower-temperature 105TC after 1985, leaving the 130TC as a stand-alone sporting model in a range of what were otherwise increasingly unexciting family cars. By then the most popular car in Fiat’s lineup was the Uno, and among hot hatch fans, the Uno Turbo i.e. The Ritmo remained in production into early 1988 before giving way to the Tipo.
Hot hatches get beat up, and 130TCs are quite rare today (for many years they were dirt cheap, too). This lovely example lived in Japan until this year, and was brought to the U.S. by @sodo_moto.
