Post and discuss all general info about Abarth here.
You may start new topics on specific cars, projects and makes designed and/or bodied by Abarth.
I know Abarth cannot be considered a real coachbuilder, but it build at least one car (the Ferrari 166MM/53) with a special own body.
Abarth cars with bodies from other coachbuilders shouldn't be placed here.

I don't believe, that Carlo Abarth, or his Company did this Car. He gave the Idea, but nothing more. Abarth had his Bodys done, by Zagato, Sibona & Bassano, Beccaris, Boano, Bertone, Vignale, Ghia and Pininfarina.
Same with the Abarth Porsche, designed by Zagato and build by Motto.

In my opinion the body was built by an external coacbuilder, called by Abarth for this work...like for the first Ferrari 125S - 159S, built by Peiretti and other indipendent unknown CBders.
In fact it was an home work did by an external craftsman...
