Ever since its creation and before being taken over by the giant Fiat Auto, the Abarth brand has always had racing written into its DNA.
Its founder, Carlo Abarth, started producing car components, and in particular exhaust pipes, in the 1950s to finance his racing programmes. The emblematic racing cars associated with Abarth include the Fiat 500 and Fiat 750, which were made lighter and then pushed to their limits. There are also a number of prototypes, including the Abarth 2000 SE 010, which was created before Abarth became Fiat’s racing department.
