1970 595 Essesse - Genuine and Very Rare Car For Sale

After leaving Cisitalia in 1948, Austrian-born engineer Carlo Abarth set up as an independent in Turin, the home of the Italian auto industry. From producing induction and exhaust systems, Abarth branched out into selling performance kits for - mainly FIAT - production cars, later building a highly successful series of aerodynamically-stylish sports prototypes and limited-series production cars. An innovative concern with a sporting pedigree second-to-none, Abarth was taken over by FIAT in 1972. With their FIAT 500-based 595, Abarth adopted the most cost-effective method of coaxing greater power from a small engine, a new big-bore cylinder block boosting the previously 499cc air-cooled twin to 593cc. Higher-compression pistons, re-worked inlet ports, a special camshaft and exhaust system, and a larger carburettor helped raise power from 22 to 30bhp, though the biggest gain was in mid-range torque. Abarth's conversion halved the standard car's acceleration times, and endowed the 595 with a top speed of more than 75mph. Lowered suspension and wider wheels and tyres helped the baby FIAT utilise the increased performance. Those still not satisfied could opt for the 595SS (Sprint Speciale) with 34bhp on tap and an 80mph top speed. The car on offer is a genuine Fiat Abarth 595 one of seven produced in 1970 and we believe one of just 20 essesse's that were genuine factory built. Presented in wonderful condition, this 595 was subject to a restoration in 2011 and imported and registered in the UK in 2015. Finished in Bianca with a black interior this very rare little Fiat is presented in concours / A1 condition. The engine runs like it should and the car is a real little thrill to drive. This is an incredibly rare and special little car and will be sold with a comprehensive file inc original italian registration documents and paperwork to authenticate the car as a genuine 'ss'.
