Abarth race car heads for London show

Published 11 February 2016

A 1965 Abarth Monoposto Record Class G racing car will feature on the company’s stand at next week’s London Classic Car Show.

The firm will also be announcing the UK launch of the Officine Abarth Classiche - the official Turin-based workshop where classic Abarth cars are repaired, restored and certified.

Abarth founder Karl Abarth drove an Abarth Monoposto Record, Class G at Monza, winning the acceleration record on 400 metres and 500 metres. Unable to find the right driver, he decided to lose 30 kilograms in weight to slip into the tight cockpit himself.

The London Classic Car Show is held at London’s ExCel exhibition hall on 18-21 February.
