![CDATA[Karl Abarth had a good head on his shoulders and his fingers on the pulse of the youth. During the 1950s, he built performance exhaust systems and other parts for Fiats using his Scorpio birth sign as the logo for his company. The natural progression of evolvement into a car manufacturer in his own right was only to be expected. The Fiat/Abarth arrangement benefited both concerns since it resulted in the many class victories that his cars captured in competition. Abarth introduced his 595 version in the summer of 1963, based on the Fiat 500 as per usual, it was visually similar with key differences found in the mechanical upgrades that pushed its top speed to over 90mph. These cars were distinctive, eminently tweakable and enormous fun. This superb example, presented in white with red Abarth decals, was built in homage to the original 595 Abarth and was fully restored from bare shell in 2018. A new 650cc engine was fitted, which included a rebuilt Synchro gearbox and the dashboard is correct according to what an Abarth had including its Abarth instruments. Its interior is black/red and includes new seats and carpets, it also enjoys the use of a sunroof. This lovely little pocket rocket sits on new Abarth wheels and tyres and is presented with a MoT test certificate which expires in February 2021. This is a superb looking evocation which would be the envy of most.]]
