2008 Fiat Abarth 500 Assetto Corse

Still in the Mille Miglia Paddock at the Fiera di Brescia, it will be possible to admire and book a truly individual car: the ‘500 Abarth Assetto Corse’, the Abarth baby supersports car that is to be produced in a Limited Edition (49 cars) – and will star in the track competitions from next year, perpetuating the evergreen legend of its famous forerunner, the ‘595 Abarth’, a car created by Fiat and engineered by the mechanical genius of Karl Abarth.
In the exhibition area, the public will also be able to admire a historical ‘595 Abarth’ and the new ‘500 Abarth’ that is due to go on sale from next July.
