Chassis no. 16F3091606
Engine no. 3413130
Fiat’s inimitable 500 is a motoring icon in its own right, the concept derived from the pre-war ‘Topolino’, offering minimalist motoring designed for the minimalist budget and yet, with 60mph performance and equally frugal fuel economy, the model was to win the hearts of the passionate Italian motorists and also find a world-wide export market. It was perhaps only natural that it should capture the imagination of ace tuner and engineer Carlo Abarth whose business was inextricably linked to Fiat as a developer of the standard Fiat product into performance sports cars.
Although this car started life as a standard 500, some 12 years ago it was transformed by Abarth specialists, Middle Barton Garage, by fitting a 689cc engine, uprated suspension and enhanced brakes, essentially bringing it to Fiat-Abarth specification. At the time the car was also subjected to a ground-up restoration. Acquired by the present owner in 1995, it has been used as everyday transport, being maintained to the highest standards. The car is attractively finished in yellow with black interior and equipped with sports wheels, nudge bars and roll-back sunroof. Described as being in very good condition throughout, this Italian classic is offered with a Swansea V5 registration document, current licence and MoT certificate.
