" Something about Abarth's Lunacy that reached its heights in the little 695 carlo converted Fiat from the sixties. Any manufacturer who would strap an oversize engine into a production car and solve the cooling issue by leaving the boot open is "
Concept Corner #2
We wondered for a while what this thing actually was.
But now, as you can see this exemplar of early seventies wedginess is clearly identified as an Abarth-Pinifarina collaboration from 1970 – which apparently resides in Japan (see image below).
This car is one of those rarities around which there seems to be a shroud of mystery. We’re not even sure the Gallery Abarth, which, apparently, houses it, actually exists.
Can’t find out the who, how, what and why of this car – so if anyone can fill in the details out there, please drop a comment or two.
