The 595 Barchetta was born from the concept by designer Peter Stevens, famous for being the designer behind the McLaren F1. Inspired by the design of the Fiat 500 and using elements and mechanicals from the Fiat 126, the body is made from composite materials and mixes fiberglass with Kevlar. This car, whose weight does not exceed 460 kg, is very delightful, reliable and robust. So the designer decided to launch series production with Simpatico Design Ltd, as well as the marketing of kits. Nine vehicles, including the one featured here, were assembled by the company.
The car on offer, made on the base of a 1982 model, was sold in England, in 1993, then in 1996 it joined the Catimini collection. The car is in perfect original condition and its meter displays 878 miles only. Featuring Nardi steering wheel, OZ rims with low-profile tires, custom-made fiberglass bucket seats: nothing is missing from this little pocket rocket, whose quality of execution is surprising. This real collector car is in perfect condition and comes with an old V5, and it will be up to the buyer to figure out the registration procedures depending on the country of destination. Few examples were ever made and even fewer come up for sale, so do not miss this opportunity!
Auction estimate: €12 000 / 18 000 - No reserve
