First presented in the 1955 Turin Motor show, the Zagato strived to bring something a little different in terms of the traditional car bodies that were on the market at the time. The original model was aimed to be a more luxurious, and interestingly enough there were two different styles on the market at the time; one aimed for buyers in the United States, and one aimed for European buys. The difference were small, sticking mostly to headlamp sizes and small bodywork modifications. While popular, few Zagatos were produced. The car was designed to be a lightweight and nimble sports car suitable for both racing and street driving. The Abarth 750 Zagato was based on the popular Fiat 600. It was successful in racing, particularly in hill climb events and circuit racing, and was raced in various locations around the world, including Europe and the United States. Today, the Abarth 750 Zagato is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts globally.
