From the Maranello Rosso Collection
1975 Autobianchi Abarth 58/70 Berlina Competition Touring Car
Chassis no. 421667
Here we offer one of the more unusual former exhibits from lifelong Italian collector Fabrizio Violati's magnificent Maranello Rosso Collection museum in Falciano, San Marino. When the Fiat Group fully absorbed Abarth & C into their empire on October 15, 1971, one of their first new models to be introduced was the launch of the Autobianchi A112 Abarth which took place that September. This highperformance version of the A112 was promoted not as a modification of the basic production car by Abarth, but as a variant specially developed by Abarth in Turin for manufacture at the Autobianchi factory in Desio. The little touring car quickly carved itself a worthwhile market niche both at home in Italy and abroad.
Initially it emerged with a 982cc 4-cylinder transverse-mounted engine, breathing through a single twin-choke Weber 32DMTR carburettor and developing a claimed 58bhp at 6,600rpm. Subsequently, from January 1974, the A112 was uprated to feature a 1070cc nominally 70-horsepower version of the side-camshaft, overhead-valve power unit.

We have been unable to establish whether this example is the 982cc or
1070cc version.

This particular example has survived as an apparently quite well used stripped-out club racing car. It carries the Italian registration plate 'PD 410623' and a Carnet Vettura Italian national racing 'passport' document has survived with it. As with all cars that we offer from long-term museum display, we are unable to confirm the mechanical condition or completeness of this Lot.

Nous n'avons pas pu établir si cet exemplaire était une version 982 cm3 ou 1070 cm3.

Cet exemplaire particulier, très dépouillé, a apparemment fait l'objet d'un usage intensif dans des compétitions de club. Il porte l'immatriculation italienne PD 410623 et elle a conservé son passeport de compétition Carnet Vettura italien. Comme toutes les voitures ayant été exposées pendant de nombreuses années dans un musée, nous ne pouvons garantir son état mécanique ni confirmer qu'elle soit complète.
