Yellow bug: 1959 Abarth 750 Record Monza by Zagato

In this case “bug” is not the nickname given to the Volkswagen Typ1, but to this insect-shaped car, very precious and sought after.

In fact, it is a Record Monza characterized in particular by two things: the roof without the double bubble and above all, under the rear hood, a 750 Bialbero engine very angry to manage but also very powerful for the time and, ultimately, a small mechanical jewel in the eyes of all classic car enthusiasts.

But the goodies do not end here: in addition to being, generally speaking, in an excellent condition (having been restored, they say, by the best Italian experts of this brand), it has some very interesting details, for example the Campagnolo period-correct rims and the Extremely rare aluminum / wood steering wheel with Abarth logo engraved on the central spoke. Of course, quality and rarity aren’t cheap: find it for sale at €155,000 (today $170,000) here in Grumello del Monte, Italy.
