Apparently this is what an automotive firm based in Cuneo, Italy called Kimera Automobili did, when making a sportscar named the Kimera EVO37, that's a restomod car made to commemorate the glory of the legendary Italian rally car, the Lancia Rally 037.

For your info, the Lancia 037 is a mid-engine sports rally car specially built by Lancia in the early 1980s to compete in the FIA Group B World Rally Championship. Despite fighting in tight competition against the Four-Wheel Drive Audi Quattro and many other formidable sports rally cars, the car managed to bring the Lancia as the winner of the manufacturers' world championship in the 1983 season, and noted itself as the last rear-wheel drive car to win the WRC.

Well through the Kimera EVO37, the automaker wants to reintepreted the Lancia Group B's rear-wheel drive rally car in a modern design touches. By design, this Kimera-made car still follows the design lines of the Lancia 037 complete with its legendary four eyes (now with the LED lights). However, the car bodywork no longer uses fiberglass but uses carbon fiber and Kevlar.

Then the bodywork is mounted on top of the chassis made by Kimera based on the Lancia Beta Montecarlo center chassis with the addition of tubular space frames at the front and rear. Then for the drivetrain, Kimera Automobili collaborated with Claudio Lombardi and Italtecnica to reengineer the Lampredi Lancia 037 engine, where the 2,150 cc four-cylinder engine is not only driven by a supercharger, but also with a turbocharger.

As the result, the twin-charger engine is claimed to be capable of producing a peak power of 505 hp and a maximum torque of 550 Nm. Just like the Lancia 037, the engine transmits power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. To support the ferocity of these bursts of power, the Kimera EVO37 has Brembo brakes with iron or carbon ceramic discs.
As for the legs, there are four Pirelli's run-flat tires that wrap specially designed 19-inches cast wheels and are supported by Öhlins' suspension system is ready to absorb shocks from the road contours. The Italian automaker plans to produce and sell 37 units of the Kimera EVO37 for 480,000 or around Rp. 8.33 billion.
