Abarth 205 Vignale Berlinetta @abarth_official The 205 Berlinetta is the product of Carlo Abarth's engineering skills combined with graceful styling of Giovanni Michelotti who worked at the time for the coachbuilder Alfredo Vignale. After the abandonment of Cisitalia in 1949, Carlo Abarth dedicated himself to the production of his own cars, using as a base some Cisitalia 204 cars that were in liquidation from the factory. The car was equipped with a 1089 cc Fiat four-cylinder engine with an Abarth processing kit, consisting of a revised intake manifold, two Weber carburettors and a sports exhaust. So prepared, the engine delivered a power output of 83 hp. With its subtle curves and elegant roofline, the 205 continues to command admiration since its release. this car has won numerous awards in the various elegance contests in which it has participated all over the world. The Abarth 205 Berlinetta is an astonishing sports car with its all-aluminum bodywork and beautiful Borrani spoke rims. The Abarth 205 Berlinetta has an incredible look that even 60 years after its birth can't leave anyone who loves beautiful cars indifferent. Karl Albert Abarth was born in Austria, but later was naturalized as an Italian citizen; and at this time his first name Karl Albert was changed to its Italian equivalent of Carlo Alberto. The sports press called Carlo Abarth "the sorcerer". A qualifier that he will always reject. Later, Carlo Abarth worked with Italian designer such as Pinin Farina, Ghia, Zagato, Bertone and Allemano. . . . . . . . #classiccar#car#abarth#carloabarth#vignale#abarth205#elegant#vintage#gentleman#classic#italy#barnfind#carporn#picoftheday#luxurycars#abarthgram#abarthitalia#abarthownersclub#artwork#italiancars#italiandesign#vintagecar#cardesign#zagato#bertone#ghia#pininfarina

There's a place... When Ferruccio Lamborghini had proved his entrepreneurial genius through various endeavours, ranging from aircons to supercars, he decided he wanted to do something completely different, namely to make wine. He got hold of a large piece of land near Lake Trasimeno in Umbria, and in 1975, after having built an entire winery from scratch, he proudly offered his first red wine, the Sangue di Miura. Now, 50 years after he acquired the estate, wine production is still going strong, and it's a popular destination for Lamborghini aficionados, such as the owners of this trio of Urracos pictured outside the main production building last weekend. The first floor apartment was Ferruccio Lamborghini's home during his last two decades. #lamborghini#ferrucciolamborghini#lamborghiniwine#tenutalamborghini#urraco#bertone#gandini#coreofcars
Today I give you some highlights from the Museo Storico Alfa Romeo. They had some fantastic cars from their illustrious history including some great prototypes that never saw the light of day: 1) Alfasud Sprint; built for Group B rallying but the project was abandoned, 2) SE048SP; built for Group C racing but unfortunately it wasn’t in the budget with Lancia and Ferrari racing. It was first powered by an Abarth V10 engine but later swapped for a Ferrari V12. Sad the world never saw/heard this run 3) 8C Competizione, the original concept car for the production model. 4) Carabo; a Bertone concept car and design exercise that drove the wedge shaped cars of the ‘70s and ‘80s 5) 158 and 159; Alfa’s first Formula 1 Cars, the 158 won the inaugural F1 World Championship in 1950 for driver Giuseppe Farina (there wouldn’t be a Manufacturer’s Championship until 1958) 6) This was the trophy that the team got, needless to say there is a little bit more money in F1 today.
