The only running Fiat Abarth 850TC Nurburgring Corsa in Singapore! This mint example shows the level of passion and commitment that has gone into it to have it looking like a museum piece by the one single owner it has had since arriving on Singapore’s shores!
This grandfather-of-hot-hatches left the Fiat Factory as a standard 600 in 1961 before being sent immediately to Abarth for conversion, emerging only two years later in 1963 as a genuine, full blooded Abarth with matching Abarth VIN and Engine numbers!
For the uninitiated, Abarth is an Italian racing and road car maker and performance division of FIAT not unlike what AMG is to Mercedes-Benz today.
What we have here is the real McCoy and not an aftermarket clone, replete with factory fitted racing paraphernalia like a large front oil cooler, twin radiators, dry sump lubrication, and a 4 speed manual gearbox. The screamer of an engine revs freely to 7,000rpm and offers a truly visceral driving experience unmatched by any modern car. An additional 5 speed gearbox will accompany the sale, together with full documentation and provenance.
Open the quaint suicide doors, drop yourself into the racing buckets, and imagine how Ernst Furtmayr took class victory in one at the Nurburgring 500km endurance race back in 1961!
