Fiat building new trio of sports carsEnlarge Photo
An Abarth-branded 'Elise'-type car, possibly sharing Lotus underpinnings, powered by a mid-mounted engine driving the rear wheels, reports 4Car. Powered by a small turbocharged four-cylinder - possibly even the 1.4L unit from the Abarth-branded Grand Punto - the ultraleggera-style sports car could be the perfect match of British sports car and Italian design.
Lancia's sports car is expected to be based on the Fulvia concept (pictured) shown in 2003, the new sports car would be a smaller premium-level accompaniment to the already-planned Aurelia cabrio grand tourer. Alfa Romeo's sports car will share the same platform as the Lancia model.
