Description

First Registration 1969, Abarth Scorpione 1300 SS, 104S

 

One of approx. 15-20 Scorpione SS still existing

 

Swiss Road Registration with „Veteran“ entry

Leo Aumüller owns one of the world’s largest Abarth collections and is known as one of the best Abarth experts. Aumüller considers the Abarth Scorpione 1300 to be a very special rarity: only about 30-40 Scorpione SSs were built, while the more basic version with only one “S” was built in the region of 300 units. He estimates that there are perhaps 15-20 Scorpione SSs left in the world today. This Scorpione SS in the vivid original light blue colour was stripped down and rebuilt between 2010 and 2012. The engine and gearbox were also rebuilt. Since then, it has been carefully maintained and the exhaust system has been made from new. For the purpose of completeness, the previously missing original rims and wheel covers were also purchased through Leo Aumüller. A rare and beautiful collector’s car with a famous name! About the history of the Abarth Scorpione: The design of the Scorpione was drawn by Giuseppe Rinaldi, who was in the service of Francis Lombardi. He borrowed some aspects of the design of the Lamborghini Miura, which gave the Abarth Scorpione the inofficial name of “Mini-Miura”. Lombardi as a coachbuilder was responsible for the bodywork of the Abarth, which was also visible in the fact that there was a very similar “Lombardi Grand Prix”. However, only with an 850cc engine, whereas the Scorpione built by Abarth was fired by a high-performance 1300cc engine. With a dry weight of only 670 kilograms, this rear-engined sports car is still a thrilling driving machine today. The SS version of the Scorpione is also equipped with a more technically sophisticated chassis and disc brakes all round. The Abarth Scorpione was one of the last cars to be built under the aegis of Carlo Abarth. The sales price at the time was three times that of a Fiat 850 and therefore limited the number of potential buyers willing to spend that money.
