Abarth is an Italian car maker that was founded in 1949 by Carlo Abarth. . It has been owned by the FCA / Groupe PSA group since 1971.  The Creation of a Legend! Even at the age of 11 Carlo Abarth was already a legend in the making; covering the wooden wheels of his scooter with a leather belt so that he could go faster and win against the older children in his neighbourhood.

Abarth is an Italian car maker that was founded in 1949 by Carlo Abarth. . It has been owned by the FCA / Groupe PSA group since 1971.  The Creation of a Legend! Even at the age of 11 Carlo Abarth was already a legend in the making; covering the wooden wheels of his scooter with a leather belt so that he could go faster and win against the older children in his neighbourhood.

Performance, speed and motoring was ingrained in Carlo's DNA, unable to resist the temptations of a challange, whether on two of four wheels. After a career racing motorcycles and cars, Carlo Abarth founded Abarth & C with Guido Scagliarini in 1949. The first vehicle produced was the 204 A Roadster, based on the FIAT 1100. It immediately won the 1100 Sport Championship as well as Formula 2. Alongside racing, the company started to produce tuning kits that improved performance, power and speed of standard vehicles.

In just a few years, Abarth & C. had 375 employees and production of around 300,000 exhaust systems a year.

Did you Know:

  1. Abarth entered everyday language in its native Italy to mean power. Customers in cafes and restaurants would not ask for a strong coffee, or a coffee with a shot of alcohol, but instead ask for an "Abarth coffee".
  2. The Abarth badge can be found on motorcycles too, like the limited edition 2017 Yamaha XSR900 Abarth.
  3. The company's famous scorpion badge came from Carlo Abarth's astrological sign, Scorpio.
