Footnotes

  • The Fiat-Abarth Monomille was introduced in 1961 with a 62mm x 74mm bore and stroke providing 982cc in its 4-cylinder in-line side-camshaft engine. The power unit was fitted with a 9.8:1 compression cylinder head, and the little unit produced a lusty 60hp at 6,000rpm.

    The new Monomille was unveiled by Carlo Abarth at the 1961 Frankfurt Motor Show, that September, and its shapely little body – deeply reminiscent of the Porsche 911 from certain angles – was styled in-house at Abarth's Corso Marche factory in Turin, and was made "just round the corner" by the company's preferred bodybuilder, Beccaris.

    The idea was to produce a relatively high-performance small Coupe that was aimed not at full-blown racing clientele but at a wider, yet discriminating, motoring audience. The 'Monomille' name alluded to the engine's single camshaft – and it proved to be a very brisk and enjoyable little two-seat Coupe. The Monomille body was very closely derived from that of the Bialbero twin-cam Coupe, and its highly effective shape contributed to a very healthy 175km/h top-end performance....

    The car is now EU taxes paid and supplied with an Italian old Libretto and corresponding Foglio Complementare illustrating the car was once registered VA 211953. Other than no other information is on file from the Maranello Rosso Collection, in whose displays it was preserved for many years. At the time of inspection, no chassis number had been located, and the engine appears to be more Fiat, than Fiat-Abarth. It is, however, another pretty little and highly Italianate Coupe that will well reward the new owner.
