Description

It’s the biblical story of David and Goliath that pops in our minds when we look at this tiny, nippy racer. FIAT-Abarth 1000 TCR definitely deserves to be objectified by fine arts and we are happy to deliver, thanks to Sebastiano Ciarca.

During the late 60`s, Carlo Abarth ruled the racing tracks in Europe thanks to FIAT 600. It was a classic postwar mini car that was cheap, rattling, economical and easy to maintain. Well, Abarth`s engineering magic made this car pure touring racer won a lot of competitions during its heydays. He took the light body, raised the engine capacity up to 1000 cm3 and added hemispherical cylinder head, also known as ‘radiale’. This led to power output increase of 115 horsepower which turned it into the first pushrod engine with more than 100 hp. Some of them are extracted via new exhaust pipes, dramatically striking through the bay engine which is always open, because you know – there is nothing to hide. And you couldn’t with such a barbaric engine sound.

Abarth 1000 TCR was designed to meet Group 5 regulations for European Touring Car Championship in the late 60s. As we already share, the result was light, nippy and fast touring racer. Despite its size, or perhaps because of it, it proved to be a hugely competitive car when placed in the hands of the right driver. Pretty interesting part of its story is that Carlo Abarth made a pretty lucrative deal with Vittorio Valetta, then FIAT CEO that he would receive money if FIAT-Abarth cars are victorious racers. Therefore he sent well-documented lists with the placings of the Abarth cars in all races after each weekend.

Now you can be inspired every day by looking at this piece of automotive fine car art dedicated to the small but fast FIAT-Abarth 1000 TCR, beautifully recreated by Sebastiano Ciarca.
