The 500 Abarth Trophy

In Italy, the Trophy will be run alongside the prestigious Ferrari Challenge, while the European Trophy will be run alongside the WTCC (World Touring Car Championship).

The 500 Abarth Assetto Corse models taking part will be produced directly by the manufacturer and sold ‘race ready’ to drivers through the official dealer network. The 500 Abarth Assetto Corse is priced at €32,800 + VAT

Both the sporting and technical regulations have been drawn up with the intention of allowing as many competitors as possible to take part – in highly competitive cars – at the lowest possible expense. That is why the practice sessions, number of possible tyre changes, and the number of technical changes that can be made to the cars have been limited.
