Even rarer: 1959 Fiat 500 N Sport “Tetto rigido”

f1

The rarest version of the Fiat 500 was only painted in grey with large red side stripes: that’s the “Sport” model made to push the sales of the Fiat 500 which, oddly, didn’t go well up to the early sixties.

This is the third 500 Sport published here and we guess that the actual population ofthis model is not much more than that: this model is way rarer than any Abarth version but it’s not well known by most people also because, as just written, is extremely rare. The Sport had more power: the engine (type 110.004), thanks to a new camshaft, increased compression and bigger valves, produced 21.5 hp, a huge 30% more power than the standard version.

This particular car is said to have been completely restored respectfully with the original specifications; also this car comes from the same italian collection from which the Abarth published monday comes: for sure the previous owner was an Abarth nut and then we guess that this car should be correct in any way. Find it for sale at €46,000 (today $54,000) here in Grumello, Italy.
