Fiat 850 Abarth tribute .
Abarth & C. S.p.A. is an Italian racing car and road car maker founded by Italo-Austrian Carlo Abarth in 1949. The aggressive logo is a shield with a stylized scorpion on a yellow and red background, one might say representing the sting in the tail of any Abarth performance vehicle.
This car is a tribute to those vehicles and has to be seen to be appreciated. With much care and attention taken in the creation of this Fiat 850 Abarth coupe it is easy to see where the hours and dollars have gone !!! This is a striking vehicle with huge presence whether on the road , track or just sitting artfully in one’s garage. This is a show stopper if ever there was one. Not only does it sound amazing but it has the handling and performance to match. The vehicle has been the recipient of a full bare metal repaint and rebuild from the ground up. Please contact us for more information on the huge amount of mechanical work this vehicle has had, including a large amount of genuine Abarth components etc, etc. In the 1960s, Abarth was successful in hill climbing and sports car racing, mainly in classes from 850cc to 2000cc, competing with Porsche 904 and Ferrari Dino.
