Fiat Abarth ot 1000.

May 6, 2010

Here, my friends, we have delight-in-auto: the Fiat Abarth ot 1000. There is something unusually attractive about this car. Based on a Fiat 850, which could play the role of the single provincial taxi in a film about grandmas, the ot 1000 was another of Mr. Abarth’s accelerated oddities. A curiosity himself, Carlo Abarth ladled soup into funny things until they sounded like all the hornets in a tin bath and went like a jet engine’s hero; the Fiat 600 (see here), for instance, was another body on his Frankenstein table of fastness.

This is another of Ian’s toys, maybe my favourite on the list of many.
