The Fiat Abarth 750 Record Monza Zagato is a small sports car that was developed by Abarth in partnership with Fiat. This car was designed to compete in hill climbs, circuit racing, and rallies and was produced between 1956 and 1960. The Abarth 750 Record Monza Zagato was based on the Fiat 600 but was extensively modified to improve its performance, including a lightweight aluminum body and a powerful engine with twin-camshaft and dual Weber carburetors that produced up to 47 horsepower.
The Abarth 750 Record Monza Zagato boasted a top speed of 93 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 14 seconds. The car also had a sophisticated suspension system, which included an independent front suspension and a solid rear axle, both with advanced coil and leaf springs. Additionally, it had front disc brakes and rear drum brakes, providing excellent stopping power.
One of the car’s most recognizable features was its “double-bubble” roofline, which was designed to increase aerodynamic efficiency and reduce drag, becoming a hallmark of Abarth’s racing cars. The car achieved significant success in motorsports, including winning several titles in the 1958 European Hill Climb Championship. Its success helped establish Abarth’s reputation as a leading manufacturer of high-performance cars.
Today, the Abarth 750 Record Monza Zagato is still highly regarded by car enthusiasts and collectors for its distinctive design, high-performance, and racing success. It remains a timeless classic in automotive history.
