Description

Whilst Fiat was best known in the late 1950s for making small and inexpensive automobiles, it took the magic of Carlos Abarth , a gifted mechanic who in today's world would be called a “tuner”, to bring out the fire in the belly of those little four-bangers. The Abarth Zagato Coupé was unveiled in 1956, and it didn't take long for it to start making news, as it took a 2nd in class at the Mille Miglia and, in the following year, a total of five cars finished the Mille Miglia, with Alfonso Thiele driving one to a 1st place finish in the 750 cc class.

This amazing example was acquired by the current owner in 2015. Realising this little and very agile car was ideal for historic rallies, he decided to modify it respecting the originality of the car. An impressive amount of money was spent in order to make it fast and reliable. This little rocket participated in prestigious events like the Tour Auto and the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Concours. The cocktail of Abarth and Zagato makes this car very special and it has a place in any prestigious collection!
