Abarth 215 A Coupé

The Abarth 215A Coupé by Bertone.

Vehicle Overview

The Abarth 215 A Coupé is a tiny sports coupe with a body designed by Franco Scaglione and exhibited by Bertone at the 1956 Geneva Motor Show. Standing at a mere 1.14 meters in height, it features a frame constructed from 10mm tubes meticulously welded together. Powered by a Fiat 600 rear engine, Abarth boosted its performance to 47 horsepower at 6000 rpm, allowing the lightweight car, weighing only 560 kg, to achieve a top speed of over 160 km/h. The Abarth 215A’s aerodynamic efficiency is enhanced by concealed headlights and the car’s minimal frontal area. This design choice contributes to its compact yet aerodynamically favorable profile, reducing drag and enhancing performance. The thoughtful design not only ensures visual appeal but also optimizes the car’s overall efficiency and stability. In addition to the coupe version, there is also a spider variant known as the 216 A. This suggests that the model was offered in different body configurations, with the spider likely featuring an open convertible top for a distinctive driving experience. The Abarth 215 A Coupé exemplifies not only outstanding engineering and performance but also a captivating aesthetic design that captures the essence of the automotive era in which it was crafted.
