The Abarth Monomille

This Abarth Monomille, imported from Italy, is from 1961 with registration number 666 and chassis number 100D436766.

It is one of the only 8 models in Europe as far as we could trace. The chassis is from the Fiat 600 but the body is the first body created by the Abarth team itself. The engine was completely transformed by Abarth and compared to the Fiat 600 with only 32 hp, this Abarth has 82 hp by 8000 rpm and a top speed of 200 km.

The Monomille was rebodied and completely restored by the Belgian Abarth-Team of “Guy Moerenhout – Racing” in 1998/99. This Abarth is used for international rallying (FIVA Card Nr. 15182) and already took part in: ”The International Historic Tulpenrallye “ in 2000 as well as the famous Giro di Sicilia and Targa Florio in June 2000 at Sicily.
