Item description for Abarth FIAT-based cars (Auto-Graphics) by Andrea Sparrow...

This book includes 90 superb original color photographs. With this brief background history of the company "Full FIAT/Abarth" story gives the reader basic specification and statistics quotes and interesting facts and feats. During the early 1950s, Abarths business was booming in three main areas - custom-built racing cars, tuning/accessories, and modification of production cars. Abarth worked on modifications with a number of manufacturers in Italy and elswehere, and it was for the companys collaboration with Fiat that it became best known. Abarths version of Fiats little 600 appeared in 1956, followed by the 500s - the company would continue to produce sporting versions of most of the major Fiat models, bearing the distinctive scorpion and shield logo, until 1971, when Abarth became an integral part of the growing Fiat empire.

Reviews - What do customers think about Abarth FIAT-based cars (Auto-Graphics)?

Worthless  Jan 13, 2007
As a Fiat afficiando I am always excited when a book comes out since there are far less published works than with many other makes of cars. Basically a picture book with limited text and information I also couldn't figure out if there was any logic as to how the book was formatted. For example not unitl halfway into the book was there any biographical information about Carlo Abarth and that was just three paragraphs.
Extremely disappointing. Save your 15 dollars.
You won't see this in most general-interest public lending library collections  Dec 14, 2006
Here's a car buff's specialty item indeed: a survey of FIATs modified by Abarth, pairing original photos of such productions by photographer David Sparrow with text by Andrea Sparrow. While historical background and technical insights are given, it's the color photos that create an outstanding and rare production here. You won't see this in most general-interest public lending library collections, which is too bad: even though its topic is quite narrow, the visuals hold appeal for a wider audience than simply Fiat fans.
