1964 Abarth 2400 Coupe by Allemano

Carlo Abarth (1908-79) was one of the most enterprising figures on the sports car scene. He won the world motorcycling championship five times down to 1939 before turning to the design of racing cars and the manufacture of accessories bearing the scorpion trademark derived from his zodiac sign.

The 2400 with bodywork by Allemano of Turin elaborates the mechanicals of the Fiat 2300. The only example belonged to Carlo himself and was built for presentation at the 1964 Geneva Motor Show. In 1949, he formed the “Abarth & C.” Company (acquired by Fiat Auto in 1971).
