Karl Abarth founded ABARTH & CO in Bologna in 1949, using his astrological sign, Scorpio, as the company logo. With the aim of limiting the high costs of racing, Abarth invented the first modification kit for the Fiat Topolino. An enormous success, it allowed anyone to transform their Topolino into a faster, more exciting car. The Abarth philosophy was born: transforming the smallest into the meanest by tuning them to get the most out of all available horsepower. Record after record has since been broken, and more than fifty years later, the Abarth mission for great racing cars continues.
