The Abarth 850 TC (Turismo Competition), was started to build from Abarth at the end of 1960, whose road version remained in production until 1966. Fiat supplied the 600 without some mechanical parts (crankshaft, brakes, carburettor and exhaust) that were mounted by Abarth turning the 600 into 850 TC.
The special parts characterizing the versions developed by Abarth were composed of a dashboard (with specific instrumentation with speedometer, odometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and oil temperature gauge), 3-spoke steering wheel, specific carburetor mounted on a special aluminum housing, oil pan in aluminum, suction and discharge system for specific gases, etc. To mention also the fact that on these versions the tailgate, which closed the engine placed in the rear of the car, was raised with latches to increase the cooling of the engine itself and therefore its efficiency.
The Abarths have won for years in the circuits of the whole world, sometimes beating cars of power and bigger capacity, and these victories have helped to build the legend of the Abarth brand and in particular of the 850 TC.
This Stunning Abarth is a fantastic tribute for one of Fiats most famous cars, and represents a fun car for vintage rallies or hillclimbs. Originally imported from Italy and modified in all the right ways to insure its ‘Giant-killing’ ways are replicated.
