Abarth was originally founded in 1949 by Carlo Abarth. Something we love is that this car company was created because Carlo loved racing and wanted to make incredible vehicles. In fact, he took over the assets of a racing team that he worked for after the business tanked.
From there, he got to work producing his vehicles and making a name for himself. In fact, it wasn’t long before he began associating with Fiat. In 1971, he actually sold the company to Fiat. Once this took place, Abarth was in charge of the racing vehicles made by Fiat. In the 80’s, Abarth vehicles were discontinued by Fiat, the name being occasionally used to respect and remind the world of Fiat’s racing legacy.
That said, after a few decades Abarth is back. As of 2007, Abarth was reintroduced by Fiat. This means you can still get brand-new Abarth vehicles, even today.
