Fiat 500 powstał jako popularny miejski samochód, lecz Carlo Abarth tchnał w niego zupełnie nowego ducha. Abarth 695 SS powstał w ok. 1000 sztukach, z których szacuje się, że przetrwało do dziś ok. 150 egzemplarzy. Jego dwucylindrowy silnik zamiast 13 KM oferował 37 KM, lecz twórcy prezentowanej repliki poszli jeszcze dalej. Moc tego świeżo odrestaurowanego egzemplarza została określona na 70 KM, co w tak filigranowym nadwoziu powinno zapewnić niezwykłe emocje.

MILEAGE:- 3,000 (SINCE REBUILD)
The Fiat 500 (or in Italian: Cinquecento), is a city car which was produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat between 1957 and 1975.
Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, it was a cheap and practical town car. Measuring only 2.97 metres (9 feet 9 inches) long, and originally powered by an appropriately sized 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 redefined the term “city car” and is considered one of the first city cars.
The new 500, the Nuova, had a smaller two-cylinder engine than all newer models, at 479 cc (500cc nominal), hence the name, and producing just 13 horsepower. The Nuova is one of three models featuring “suicide doors.” There was also a stylish Sport version of the Nuova, which features a distinctive red stripe and a more powerful engine, bored out to 499.5 cc from the original 479 cc engine, giving a very respectable car bhp with the same block. Highly-tuned sports models were famously produced by Abarth, originals of which are now highly sought after.
