An Abarth 1000 classic racer with various styles

When we talk about the sports car from Abarth, of course, there will be many names that will appear along with it. This time we are talking about the Abarth Zagato 1000 classic car that was specially made by Abarth in collaboration with Milan-based coachbuilder, Carrozzeria Zagato.

Yes, this is one amazing model which is an evolution of the 750 Coupé figure Zagato designed in the late 1950s to win the 1960 Compasso d'Oro. This automobile quoted weight at the kerb is 570 kg, and has a 2 door coupé with a rear located engine powering the rear wheels.

As we all knew that the first Fiat 600-based Abarth to be fitted with the larger 982 cc development of the 600 engine was the Zagato-bodied Berlinetta, similar in appearance to the 750 and 850 Monza models.

And shortly after that, a legendary car named Fiat-Abarth 1000 Bialbero "Record Monza" had been launched and was first shown at the October 1960 Paris Motor Show. Later it added to the Lucca Public Car List in August 1961.This car launch marks the appearance of the first model of the Abarth 1000 racing cars.

It's powered courtesy of a naturally aspirated engine of 1 litre capacity coupled with the Weber twin carburetors and a 9.3 to 1 compression ratio help reach this considerable output for the engine.develops 91 bhp (92 PS/68 kW) of power at 7100 rpm, and maximum torque of 104 N·m (77 lb·ft/10.6 kgm) at 5500 rpm. This unit features double overhead camshaft valve gear, 4 cylinder layout, and 2 valves per cylinder.

The car is claimed top speed is 205 kph (127 mph). A bewildering variety of slightly different bodystyle elements appeared over the years, with covered and uncovered headlights, different engine lids, taillights, and window arrangements, as well as a later long-tailed design which also received a longer nosecone.
Since these cars were largely handbuilt and often to order, it is hard to say what is original and what may have been modified after many years of competition. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSTYLING.RU | ITALIANWAYS | CARFOLIO ]
