    Following on from the success of the Fiat , the Fiat series was launched in Fiat successfully employed the same floorpan and suspension setup in the series, carrying over many components from the series. This helped reduce costs and allowed Fiat to offer a Berlina saloon , Coupe, Spider, Familiare estate and a Furgonata van. The flexible body styles continued the water cooled rear engined format, utilising the cc four cylinder engine. While the Fiat saloon lacked power, it made up for this weighing in at only kg.

    The light weight body, combined with an independent suspension and a four speed transmission, made the a nimble car which added greatly to its over all charm. Its light weight also helped the get away with drum brakes all round.

    And it proved the perfect platform for the creation of the Fiat Abarth. In the compact two door saloon was revised as the Fiat Special and received the larger cc 52BHP engine from the Coupe. Front disc brakes were also offered to cope with the increased power. The trim level was also improved and a sports steering wheel was offered. With 60BHP squeezed out of the tiny four cylinder engine, they proved a very potent package. Offered for sale is a Fiat Saloon which has been given the full Abarth treatment and is described as a full nut and bolt Abarth recreation.

    Finished in white with Abarth red livery, the build spec is impressive. An Abarth exhaust has also been added. On the inside it has been fitted with a new black interior with red piping. A set of Coupe Dials and a three spoke wooden steering wheel complete the sporting look. Its curvy shape, round headlights and stumpy rear end, give it a lot of character. We actually got to drive one last year and found it a really fun drive.

    This Fiat Abarth recreation must be all that multiplied by ! We like the fact that this example is right hand drive making it a rare survivor assuming it is a UK survivor. The red on white look is very smart and works well on the saloon shape, with the alloys setting it off very nicely.

    The obligatory Abarth badges and decals look good and there is no escaping the cars intent with the raised engine lid. The engine bay itself looks very clean with lots of new parts visible. The Abarth exhaust has been heat wrapped which should help with cooling the cramped engine bay. The interior is typical Fiat minimalism.

    The new trim contrasts well with the paint job and the wooden wheel and upgraded dials give it much more of a sporting look. Overall we really like this Fiat Abarth recreation.

    Its the kind of build we would do if we got our hands on a stock Saloon. And we assume it is sporting new disc brakes. It also looks like there is a bit of paint chipped on one of the arches and there is a bit of wear evident on the steering wheel. However these are small details on what looks like a nice build.

    And some investigative digging has turned up what we think is the same car featured in a series of articles on the Cherished Vehicle Insurance website five articles in total. If it is the same car then it gives a nice bit of background to the restoration work. More details on the restoration of that Fiat can be found here. So to summarise, this Fiat Abarth would make a fun track day car and would be a blast to drive on any classic car run.
