Few cars can claim to have been as successful as the Autobianchi A112 Abarth. Autobianchi - which became Fiat's laboratory brand in the 1950s - is undoubtedly remembered for its A112. Built to compete with the Austin Mini, the A112 had the impossible task of imposing itself on a market already dominated by the English car. Taking up the innovative architecture of the transverse engine with gearbox in the extension, the small dishes were put in the big for the A112. As the brand came under the control of Lancia, the little Italian car arrived with a bang in 1969. Its success was immediate: charming, reliable, elegant, it immediately stood out. But while the Mini's success endures thanks to competition, the A112 sees a similar fate when the great wizard Carlo Abarth sets his sights on it.

What happened next? You know it... The Autobianchi A112 Abarth will create an earthquake. The versions will then follow one another, the successes in rallying will pile up and the sales will multiply. Who doesn't dream of owning this little bomb? The one that all the young people were asking their parents for had a career that lasted 17 years, no less! The 8-valve in-line four-cylinder with a Weber twin-barrel carburetor became a legend, remaining the last model to be honed, or rather sublimated, by Carlo Abarth himself. Although the power evolved over time until it reached 70 horsepower, the sound of the fabulous Scorpion organ will never disappear. What a hymn to freedom. Coupled with the optional 5-speed gearbox introduced in 1975, the Autobianchi Abarth takes on even more meaning. This little shoebox - or yoghurt pot - is a nervous racing beast with a devilish temperament that can be tamed by its manageable chassis, and has nothing to be ashamed of compared to the current 595 Abarths and their Mirage 2000 sound. "I can make noise too" and much more.

Our car is one of the last 5 Series produced, leaving the factory in 1982. It is distinguished by its unusual Maroco beige color. Fully original, our A112 Abarth has 95. 809 km (five digit counter). In great shape, our Abarth purrs like on its first day. And guess what! It has the very rare characteristic of not being eaten away by rust. Because yes, if it was optional, nobody could do without it. It's hard to find one still in good condition and not rebuilt. Our Autobianchi is entirely original and has never been modified. Just imagine: you dreamed about it, you didn't believe in it anymore, yet Mecanicus found it for you.



Rares sont les autos qui peuvent se targuer d’avoir autant été un succès que l’Autobianchi A112 Abarth. Autobianchi - devenue dans les années 50 la marque laboratoire de Fiat - est incontestablement restée dans les mémoires grâce à son A112. Construite dans le but de concurrencer l’Austin Mini, l’A112 avait pour mission impossible de s’imposer sur le marché déjà dominé par l’anglaise. Reprenant l’architecture innovante du moteur transversal avec boîte de vitesses dans le prolongement, les petits plats ont été mis dans les grands pour l’A112. Alors que la marque passe sous le contrôle de Lancia, la petite italienne débarque en trombe en 1969. Son succès est immédiat : charmante, fiable, élégante, elle se démarque de suite. Mais alors que le succès de la Mini perdure notamment grâce à la compétition, l’A112 aperçoit un destin similaire quand le grand sorcier, Carlo Abarth jette son dévolu sur elle.

La suite ? Vous la connaissez... L’Autobianchi A112 Abarth va créer un séisme. Les versions vont alors s'enchaîner, les succès en rallye s’empiler et les ventes se multiplier. Qui ne rêve pas de posséder cette petite bombe ? Celle que tous les jeunes réclamaient à leurs parents vit sa carrière durer 17 ans, rien que ça ! Le quatre cylindres en ligne à 8 soupapes et au carburateur Weber double corps entra dans la légende, demeurant le dernier modèle affûté, ou plutôt sublimé, par Carlo Abarth en personne. Si la puissance évolua au fur et à mesure jusqu’à atteindre 70 chevaux, le son du fabuleux organe frappé du Scorpion ne disparaîtra jamais. Quel hymne à la liberté. Couplé à la boîte de vitesses 5 rapports apparue en option à partir de 1975, l’Autobianchi Abarth prend encore davantage de sens. Bête de course nerveuse, au tempérament diabolique mais domptable par son châssis maniable, cette petite boîte à chaussure - ou pot de yaourt - n’a pas à rougir face aux actuelles 595 Abarth et à leur sonorité de Mirage 2000. “Moi aussi je peux faire du bruit” et bien plus encore.

Notre auto est l’une des dernières Séries 5 produite, sortie d’usine en 1982. Elle se distingue par sa couleur beige Maroco, peu courante. Entièrement d’origine, notre A112 Abarth affiche 95. 809 km (compteur cinq chiffres). En pleine forme, notre Abarth ronronne comme à son premier jour. Et devinez quoi ! Elle possède la très rare particularité de ne pas être rongée par la rouille. Car oui, si cette dernière était d’option, personne n’a pu s’en passer. Difficile d’en trouver une encore en bon état et non refaite à neuve. Notre Autobianchi est entièrement d’origine et n’a jamais été modifiée. Imaginez un peu : vous en rêviez, vous n’y croyiez plus, pourtant Mecanicus l’a trouvée pour vous.
