Abarth 750 Zagato (1959)
Restored to perfection by Faralli.
This lightweight "giant killer" was introduced in 1956. It was developed by Carlo Abarth and based on a Fiat 600 platform. Abarth almost doubled the power output to 47 bhp, while the total weight of the car didn't exceed 540 kg. The beautiful body was designed and built by Zagato, and is nowadays considered as a proper design icon with the famous "double bubble" roof and engine cover.
This particular example is restored in 2015 to perfection by famous italian restorer Walter Faralli in Pisa. Finished in its original colour combination of Blu Zagato with a red interior. Sports seats are fitted at the moment, but we also have the standard Abarth seats retrimmed in the same materials. It's up to the next owner which seats he likes the most. This is a genuine Abarth 750 GT Zagato, and it is listed in the Italian Car Registry by John De Boer. It sounds fantastic, and a real pleasure to drive.
Summary : this little gem is a wonderful addition to any world class collection. The perfect proof that small cars can be exotic and extremely desirable. This Abarth is a guaranteed entry ticket for the most exclusive classic car events, and due to its rarity, condition and design a proper blue chip investment.
