fiat 126 (abarth)

September 12th, 2007 by dejurriaan · 7 Comments

while driving i spotted this little car. its a Fiat 126 from 1974, and this owner made it look like an Abarth version. Fiat used to call their fastest cars Abarth. Carlo Abarth was a famous Italian/Austrian racing driver. Inside this tiny monster are 2 racing seats with a racing harnass. the mirrors look like those of a opel manta mk2 but i’m not sure. i really like that it has no bumpers and the nice rims. its not a fast car but its something special.

if you know more about this car please let us know

    Zit eens rond te surfen, en het is wel een cool karretje. Net zoals de 127 van Waizfisz hebben ze ook een cabrio variant… Heerlijk, auto’s die speelgoed lijken 🙂
