Watch how a 320Hp FIAT X1/9 beats Monsters with twice its Power

From the Top 10 fastest Touring Cars at the HillClimb Masters in Gubbio, probably the most impressive was Manuel Dondi at the wheel of his "giant-slayer" FIAT X1/9. Against a field of 700+Hp Mitsubshi Evos, ex-DTM cars, Judd V8 powered machines at top spec GT3 cars, the tiny 320Hp/670Kg Alfa Romeo D2STW powered machine was the 2nd fastest, only behind the mighty 630Hp/11.300Rpm SLK340 Judd V8 of Reto Meisel. And even that was even for only less than 1 second.

So sit back and enjoy a proper masterclass of high speed driving, while Manuel Dondi shows how to squeeze every last drop of performance from the humble X1/9.
