Fiat-Abarth 750 Spider by Allemano 


With Zagato’s initial designs drawing only limited appeal, Abarth turned to Carrozzeria Allemano for the Fiat Abarth 750 Spider. The result of their efforts is a Spider that’s entirely unique, sleek and sporty while retaining a period Italian charm. Powered by a 747cc inline 4-Cylinder engine with a 2-Barrel Weber carburetor.
