Yellow stinger: 1970 Abarth 1300 Scorpione


Here it is, for the second time in three years, an Abarth 1300 Scorpione for sale: it’s not easy to spot one of these for sale as, back, then, it was an expensive toy for wealthy boys.


Karl Abarth took the body made by Francis Lombardi coachworks and filled it with the engine taken from the Fiat 124,  conveniently increased from 1197 to 1280 c.c., fitted with a special camshaft and a single Solex two-throat carburetor.


The brakes too were of course sized for the increased performance of the car which has other several differences from the 850 Grand Prix, especially about the suspensions. This particular car is said to come from U.S.A. to Germany  wher it has been restored by none less than Leo Aumüller, one of the greatest Abarth connoisseur in the world. The car looks perfect and realy we’ve nothing to criticize about it: there is even the original steering wheel! Find it for sale at €57,000 (today $60,000) here in Füssen, Germany.
