In the summer of 1963 Carlo Abarth, who was still fired by the determination to make "a sportscar within everybody's means", officially presented his amazing 595, a direct variation of the Fiat 500 D. With this little bomb Abarth turned evermore towards the younger road users and all their potential as buyers throughout the future. When compared with the original 500, the new 595 cars were externally very similar, the differences lay under the skin. The only changes on the bodywork were emblems; the Fiat Abarth 595 logo, the badge on the radiator grill and the coat-of arms on both sides of the car. The point of an Abarth was the mechanical upgrades, and the 595 did not disappoint. A special cylinder casting was used, and the exhaust ports and manifold pipes were polished. New valve springs were fitted, along with a revised camshaft that permitted higher engine speeds and correspondingly greater output. Specially designed pistons were fitted, and the rods and crankshaft were improved. The original carburetor set up was replaced and an Abarth double outlet silencer was fitted as well. Even the lubrication system was modified with the adoption of a special gear driven high output pump situated at the bottom of the sump. The 595 SS Series I offered here in the patriotic national colors of Italy has been modified beyond the original configuration and now sports a 700 cc Gianinni full tilt race motor with dual 40 DCOE Weber carburetors mounted on a special manifold. This car is ready for street or race and is exempt from all DOT and smog requirements based on the year of manufacture. The car has run in several historic races with HSR West and has won a First in Class on every occasion, truly an impressive feat given its competition. Dyno'd at 60 horsepower, this lightweight little car is truly a rocket ship.
