Carlo Abarth was a performance tuning maestro. He created and modified the small displacement Italian cars of the times, adding his own tuned exhausts, cylinder heads and other components. The results were championship-winning racers and street cars. The Abarth Buyer's Guide tells the story of all the Abarth cars, including the earliest Cisitalias, Fiats, Simcas, the Zagato and Bialbero cars, Porsche Abarth Carrera, Lancias, formula cars, record-setters and the sports racers. The book is built on an impressive archive of historical photographs, many of them rare original Abarth factory pictures. The detailed text chronicles the development history of Abarth, including specifications, restoration and authenticity notes, and the Buyer's Guide star investment ratings. Author Peter Vack is an Abarth enthusiast of long standing, and he writes of the cars with passion and experience. Over a period of 13 years, the Abarth Buyer's Guide has proven to be a very dependable and useful book for those interested in Abarth cars. Now in its third printing, it remains one of the best and most comprehensive Abarth books ever written. Of that we are proud. We hope that it will continue to encourage others to do further research and create enthusiasm for the restoration of all Abarths.
