The Abarth is a racing car and road-going automotive maker founded by Carlo Abarth of Turin, Italy in 1949. In the 1950s world of small sports car racing, the Abarth Company was king. Perhaps best known for its association with Fiat, Abarth quickly built up an extensive reputation as the premier tuner of Fiat engines and was branching out into many classes of motor sport by 1956. One of the best-known Abarth classics is the 1958 and 1959 Fiat Abarth 750 Zagato, which is also known as the Abarth Double Bubble and was used to compete in the 750cc class of the Grand Touring Championship. Thanks to Zagatos weight saving body, the first cars weighed just 1,179 pounds and took advantage of Abarths 747cc tuned engine. With a high compression head and a specially made exhaust, power was exceptional for its time. A number of prototype cars were manufactured in 1956 and one of these would appear at the 1956 Mille Miglia, which would place second in class. The production version of the 750 Zagato would appear at the 1956 Geneva Motor Show. The twin intake scoops at the back and the double bubble roof were the most distinctive features of the car, and in typical Zagato fashion, the aluminum body was equal parts bizarre and gorgeous. This styling would give the Abarth 750 a quite unforgettable appearance.
