The Creation of Two Masters

1955 Abarth “Spyder” 1100

The 1955 Abarth Competition Spyder was road tested by the Italian Racing Ace Gino Valenzano.

Gino says, “I tested many cars on a 6 Km. twisting course and the Abarth proved to be faster than many sports cars with twice the displacement.”

This new comet is the creation of two Masters: Abarth for the mechanical end and Boano for the streamlined coach work.

It is powered by a 1089 cc. modified Fiat engine with a bore of 68 mm. and a stroke of 75 mm. Compression ratio is 9:1 with 2 Weber side draft carburetors, develops 6 bhp. at 6000 rpm. Weight 1148 lbs.
