The company Autobianchi, which was a part of the Fiat group, announced in 1969 the Autobianchi A112 on the market. The normal version was using the engine of the model Fiat 850 Sport, but with reduced power of 44 hp. Because of the light-weight body (only 685 kg) and the very good driving capability, the workshop of Karl Abarth put the engine of a TCR 1000 into a A112. The first prototype had about 100 HP or even more. But Fiat decided to decrease the power of the first A 112 to 58 HP; thats the reason for the official name A112 HP 58. In 1974 the A112 HP 70 was announced with (logically) 70 HP.
Most of the A112 Abarths were used by young people to start into motor racing (sometimes of course using just normal streets for their “races”); that caused the lifetime of these cars to be reduced dramatically. In some countries like Italy or Germany several “A112-cups” were announced, which were one of the cheapest to get motorsports experiences.
This is one Gorgeous Example of a great Italian Sports Car. This Outstanding Autobianchi Abarth A112 drives and handles extremely well, like a little racer with a “big heart”. Under The Hood you will find the Abarth tuned TCR 1000 Engine Pumping out 70 Horsepower. The exterior is Red on a Beautiful black interior. The undercarriage, Wheel Wells and engine compartment are as solid as the rest of the vehicle.
