  20. In the early 1960s, several models of the Fiat 600 marked the history of all European car racing tracks.
    Abarth cars were a mix of lightness and aerodynamic lines. No other cars in their classes could compete with them, especially thanks to their powerful engines. It was in this context that the Simca Abarth was introduced, in March 1962. Abarth and Mario Cuolucci, his chief engineer, thought that the Simca base, which was longer in width, would provide their new Abarth 1300 engine with more stability. The bodywork was designed at Abarth’s factory and it was this car which was equipped with the first-ever engine made entirely by Abarth.
    In 1963, the Simca Abarth was “the winning car” for the ninetieth time, adding its class to the Sebring 12 Hour and Daytona races.
    The first series produced 125 hp at 7,200 rpm and the second 138 hp at 7,600 rpm at an approximate top speed of 150 mph.
