The magic number.

__Last year’s “Abarth: 0-100-0” exhibition in Turin proved the perfect opportunity to remember Carlo Abarth in style, exactly 100 years after his birth on 15th November 1908.

__Abarth owners took full advantage of this unique opportunity and were in attendance with a comprehensive range of impressive automobiles.

__Of particular interest, the 1959 ‘Double Bubble’ 750 Zagato and the little-known Porsche 356 Carrera Abarth from 1960.
