The Fiat 500 surely needs little introduction, suffice to say that this compact car became ripe for tuning with Abarth leading the way in converting them into successful fast road and racing cars of the period. With genuine Abarth models now seeing some extraordinary prices, it is no surprise that many have been converted to replicate these versions of the Fiat 500. However, the surprise is the condition of this particular example.

This stunning example was manufactured in 1972. It was first registered in the UK in 2015. It has been in our vendors tenure since June 2015. During his tenure the car has benefitted from an engine rebuild, retrimming of the interior and the sunroof, and repainting. It is presented in pale blue with its recently fitted, black and red interior. This look is enhanced with Abarth clocks and steering wheel. It is UK registered and we are informed is a joy to drive turning heads wherever it goes.
