ABARTH 2000 SPORT SE10 1970 Motor: 2.0 L 4 Cylinder 250 CV Type Abarth 2000 Sport Prototipo Max Comelli.AVI on youtube Carlo Abarth was a friend of Dr Ferdinand Porsche, nd his son Ferry, nd he joined the Porsche design studio when it was working on the Cisitalia Grand Prix project. Abarth, n Austrian ex-motor cyclist (five times Champion of Europe) had settled in Italy before the war so he was the natural choice to liaise between Porsche and Cisitalia. When the Cisitalia project fell apart, nd its patron left Italy, ne of the drivers persuaded his father to buy the remaining stock of sports car components and set Abarth up in business. At first he concentrated on tuning equipment for Fiat and other makes, efore turning his hand in 1955 to manufacturing complete cars. 1956 saw the introduction of one of his most famous and successful models, he road/racing 750 coupe. Conceived primarily with the fiercely competitive 750 class in mind, he car utilised mainly modified Fiat 600 components. Raising the capacity from 633 cc to 747cc and changing various mechanical parts, barth was able to transform a relatively simple vehicle into a truly sturdy car capable of impressive speed and acceleration. Development continued at a prodigious rate, ncompassing not only his greatest forte, ngine boosting, ut also reliability, ndurance and safety, ll vital ingredients in sports car racing. In 1962 Abarth was contracted by Simca to produce high performance versions of its 1,000cc rear-engined saloon and this led to the creation of the Simca-Abarth coupe powered by Abarth’s own 1,300cc, win overhead camshaft, our cylinder engine which, ia twin Weber 45DCPE carburettors, roduced 147bhp; soon after 1,600, 000 and 2,000cc engines followed, he latter with five main bearings. In 1963 and 1964 these cars enjoyed enormous success but the association with Simca ended the following year when Chrysler took over the French company. In 1968 the 2,000cc engine, till using a Fiat iron cylinder block as its base, ould see service in the Fiat-Abarth 236B sports-racing prototype. Featuring a multi-tubular steel spaceframe chassis, uspension was by double wishbones and coil spring/damper units at the front and lower links, adius arms and coil spring/damper units at the rear. The 1,946cc, win overhead camshaft engine, gain fed by twin Weber carburettors and mounted behind the rear axle line, roduced 250bhp at 8,000rpm which was transmitted via Abarth’s own five speed gearbox; disc brakes were fitted front and rear. Clothing it all was a fibreglass body with detachable front and rear panels with a wedge-shaped nose and a large Perspex windscreen. As the 1960s drew to a close Carlo Abarth began to bow to pressure from his head of design, ario Colucci, ho insisted that the way forward in racing car design was the mid-engined configuration, ot Abarth’s favoured rear engine layout. By 1970, owever, he engines had moved in front of the axle line and a series of sports racing prototypes were built to this design, gain incorporating Abarth’s own twin camshaft four cylinder engines of all capacities and new V8 units of three litres; the Sports 2000 car also now had wishbone/coil spring suspension all round with telescopic dampers and adjustable anti-roll bars front and rear. Having beaten the best of the European factory teams, ncluding Porsche and Ferrari, n both hillclimbs – Austrian Johannes Ortner’s works car would dominate the Competition Sports Car class of the European Mountain Championship in 1969, 70 and ’71 – and open road races, barth set out to win in closed circuit racing as well, uch as the European Sports Car Championship for 2.0 litre cars; during the 1970 season the Abarth Sports 2000 recorded fourth places overall at Paul Ricard and in Finland, hird places at Salzburgring and in Sweden, fifth place at Hockenheim and first, econd and third places at Mugello where Arturo Merzario led home Kinnunen and van Lennep. Merzario and Kinnunen were also second and third in the Nurburgring 500 Kilometres race and overall in the championship Abarth finished third behind Lola and Chevron. Chassis 036 is the ex-Brescia Corse Sports 2000 that in 1970 was driven by Luigi Moreschi and PAM in various hillclimbs and races, ncluding the Monza 1,000 Kilometres, arga Florio, ugello and Jarama Luigi Moreschi and PAM raced the Abarth in the Zeltweg 1,000 Kilometres, he latter also contesting the La Mendola Hillclimb while GIBI drove it at the Trento Bondone Hillclimb. Sandro Munari (the famous Stratos driver ) also drove the car in the Giro di Belgio 1971 which he led until electrical problems caused retirement. The subject of a no expense-spared restoration within the last 12 months by Moreschi Motor Sport., uring which a new cylinder block, rankshaft, istons, onnecting rods, iming gears and other major engine components were fitted – the car is now finished in Original Red Abarth. Strikingly pretty and perfectly presented, his extremely rapid and famous Abarth, hich comes complete with a Historic Technical Passport, s offered in truly excellent and race-ready condition and it would be a highly competitive machine in a variety of historic motor sport events.
