Abarth 1300 Scorpione
What is light, nimble, sexy and will sting when you’re not paying attention? – Abarth’s scorpion.
Giuseppe Rinaldi created the Abarth Milletrecento Scorpione with Carrozzeria Francis Bombardi of Vercelli. We can already feel our moustache and need for espresso and gas! Based on the Fiat 850, the Scorpione was the last independent Abarth ever produced.
It was presented in 1968 in Geneva, where quite a few drivers saw the potential in this venomous scorpion. After all, Abarth was one of the few manufacturers who offered racing support. When Fiat di compagnia took over Abarth in ’71, production and support stopped. Since then the Scorpione is on the endangered-car species list and is only spotted in collections.
Ours? Second collection also owner, no circuit yet. Untouched, recently overhauled and with ASI certificate. Niente scuse, contate i soldi e venite!
