What you’re seeing here is a Fiat X1/9 with a Dodge Shelby Daytona Turbo II drivetrain, tuned to around 240WHP, and other tasteful modifications. While it is not for sale, compare that the $22,000 “Dallara” X1/9 which Antii featured in the past, and draw your own conclusions.
Reader Alan Arnold owns this car, search for him and the car on the Book of Faces, and he just wanted share it with Hooniverse readers, at the request of Alff. Hit the jump for the money shot.
Interesting part that Alan points out “The rig hanging from the strut towers is an original Fiat alignment jig.”
Our own Rob chimed in with an interesting aside:
An interesting aside, Carroll Shelby once worked on an AC 3000ME with the turbo 2.2.
It was brought to them by an importer looking for a mill after Buick told them thanks but no thanks.
Even though Lee – if you can find a better car – Iacocca dreamed of a new Pantera, I guess It didn’t work out.
The car is presently sitting in a museum or something. You can Google Shelby 3000ME to see some pictures and get a little more of the story.
Thanks Alan! Great looking machine, probably goes as well as it looks, too!
