About the Lancia Beta Montecarlo Turbo: Content
In 1974, Abarth worked together with Pininfarina to develop the SE030, which managed to take 2nd place at Tour d’Italia. Taking feedback from the race regarding engine test and body design in relation to the sportscar market, Fiat announced the car as the Beta Montecarlo under the Lancia brand at the 1975 Geneva Motor Show. At this point in time Lancia merged with Fiat’s racing team, and based on Fiat’s decision the team would develop their new racecar using the Beta Montecarlo instead of the Stratos. Keeping the center monocoque intact, front and rear tubular frame were added in addition to an Abarth turbo charger. The whole package completed the Group 5 machine that was the Beta Montecarlo Turbo. The Beta Montecarlo Turbo made its first race debut in 1979, and would join the World Sportscar Championships fully in the following year. It won the World Championship for Makes in 1980 and 1981 for the Under 2000cc class. Outside of the World Sportscar Championships it also joined Giro d’Italia, and while it was disqualified due to regulation violations in 1979 (despite winning first and second place otherwise) it managed a one-two finish in the following year. As endurance race regulations changed to Group C in 1982, the Beta Montecarlo Turbo no longer saw any action on the road. However the monocoque and body design would be carried over to the Group B machine – the Rally 037..
