Carlo Abarth started his own car company in 1949 after taking over what was left of the Cisitalia company. In the following years, Abarth built a virtual automotive empire on the sale of aftermarket performance parts for Fiat-based cars and the limited production of small displacement sports and racing cars. One of the largest (in terms of quantity) and most recognizable of his sports car creations was a series of cars based on the diminutive Fiat 600 sedan (or Berlina). This month’s Web site is a Dutch site devoted to these curious little cars.
Available in either English or Dutch, this month’s site features a pair of brief histories on Carlo Abarth and his cars. While these are fairly superficial, there is also a nice series of photo galleries devoted to the various Berlina models including the 750, 850, 1000 and other purpose-built Abarth racecars. Additionally, there are also extensive specification listings for the 750 and 850 models, as well as a project car page, Abarth-related links and a section devoted to entry information and photos for the Abarth Coppa Mille rally and race events held each year.
