Milan Abarth is Ready for its Close-Up


First video footage of Austrian flyweight Le Mans prototype for the road singes our retinas.
Austria may not be the first place you think of when it comes to automaking countries. Its neighbor to the north tends to take that mantle for the German-speaking countries. But the founders of Porsche, Volkswagen and Abarth come from the Central European country. While the latter's legacy is alive and well today in Fiat's performance division, his descendants have produced this LMP-style supercar. We first reported on the Milan Abarth a few weeks ago, but now video footage of the flyweight performance machine has surfaced.
Anticipated to debut in February, the Milan Abarth will be restricted to just 7 examples. With less than 2,650 lbs to motivate and engine options ranging up to 1,700 horsepower, the bonkers supercar ought to put Austria on the automaking map and pay more proper tribute to Karl Abarth than any turbocharged Fiat 500 ever could.
