THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Produced from 1956 to 1959, the Fiat Abarth Derivazione was the first steel-bodied Fiat sedan modified by Abarth. The cars hail from the same period as the famed Fiat-Abarth 750 Zagato "Double Bouble". Abarth modified the Derivazione with more powerful engines, a larger radiator, close gear ratios, steel slotted 12-inch wheels, Jager Tachometer, 90mph speedometer, and Abarth badging. Customers could option their car with a supplemental water radiator and engine cover hood props if so desired.

Abarth did not stamp the Derivazione chassis with Abarth serial numbers like the later TC series, but thankfully this car is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Abarth expert, Dr. Steven Knee. The original letter of authenticity accompanies the car, giving its owner real peace of mind. The Derivazione is said to possess its original Abarth tachometer, Abarth wheels, holes for the hood props, studs for the auxiliary radiator, and the correct Abarth badging with appropriate patina. In 2001, the car was restored by Reborn Racers. During the restoration, the suspension was lowered, new Konis were fitted, the brakes upgraded, a braced interior roll-over bar and modern competition racing seat, and a modern racing tachometer added. The original, cloth Fiat driver's seat was retained and will accompany the car. The engine is a fresh, zero time 903 Fiat unit that has not been raced since it was installed in 2017.

Authentic Abarth Berlina Derivaziones are seldom seen; few if any authentic examples are as properly built and ready for action as this. With its letter of authenticity from a noted expert, original Abarth items, and fresh engine, this restored Fiat Abarth Derivazione is ready to provide its next owner with years of enjoyment.
