Abarth Fiat 750 Zagato (1957-1961) specifications

Fiat 500-based sportscar makes a great historic motorsport competitor


Carlo Abarth’s 750 Zagato GT first appeared at the Geneva Motor Show in 1956 and immediately caused a storm. The pretty little coupé and roadster were based on the Fiat 500’s running gear, but powered by a tuned version of the Abarth 747cc engine in high-compression form, delivering 44bhp. Later versions were available with a twin- cam head that made enough power to take the featherweight sports car to a top speed of 118mph and on to success in motor sport, including a class win on the Mille Miglia in 1957. Highly prized.
