  • The Fiat Abarth Scorpio Concept was designed in by Pininfarina according to a project by Filippo Sapino. Its name is not an obvious.

    The Fiat Abarth Scorpione Concept is one-of-a-kind, and StanceWorks was lucky enough to capture it during its trip from Japan to Italy.

    It is interesting! The faces of the company Fiat are famous racers Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen.

    It seems as though, if only briefly, the automotive design world expected things to change drastically in the direction of chisel-shaped, light-weight coupes. There is entirely the possibility that I may never see the car again. Whether it was purely to acquire the is up for debate, but I would be hard pressed to blame him. That is, unless Kosaka were willing to open a museum.

    Insufficient Storage

    Over the past few years, I've had the opportunity to see a number of spectacular cars in person - cars I've seen in books as a kid, or in photo archives on the web, but never expected to see in person. Rarities, one-offs, concepts, and coach built cars are much of what make Concours shows so special; they often represent a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see some of automotive history's most unique, impressive, or sometimes gaudy cars, ever.

    After time spent at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, it left one major show remaining in the "triple crown" of the most prestigous car shows in the world: It was there, on the banks of Lake Como, that I saw one of the most personally captivating cars to date. I have a soft spot for exotic, wedge-shaped masterfully-penned concepts.

    It's hard to decide whether their aesthetics captivate me with true beauty, or create an awkward sense of attraction - a forbidden fruit as a result of the "dark ages" of '60s, '70s, and '80s design. They are unique in their styling, alone in a world of their own, frozen in time. It seems as though, if only briefly, the automotive design world expected things to change drastically in the direction of chisel-shaped, light-weight coupes.

    As a result, decades on, we are left with a selection of cars that have truly created their own segment in automotive history; each marque seems to have given a nod to the genre in one form or another, with some even moving these pseudo-iconic machines into production, such as the Lotus Esprit, the Delorean, and the Lamborghini Countach.

    An example that stands out, however, is this one In , the minds at Abarth and Pininfarina joined together to contribute their own design to the newly-established aesthetically inclined genre. The result was the Abarth Scorpione - one of the most enthralling and alluring designs to stem from the era. The body lines twist and dance, finding their way from nose to tail in an unorthodox path, yet adhering to an established design language.

    The breaks all the right rules, establishing it as one of the best, for me, of 's Concorso d'Eleganza. The earns its name from the obvious.

    Underneath the sprawling rear glass lies an Abarth-built Fiat engine; however, many might say it is missing more than a few cylinders. Where one might expect to find a V12, V10 or V8, they'll be surprised to find not even six cylinders.

    Instead, just 2, cubic centimeters - 2. Pumping out horsepower, it's extremely high-strung, especially given the era, but its hardly the heart of a "supercar. With such a low weight, and equally low drag, the car could climb to an impressive, albeit supposed mph. The car now resides with Shiro Kosaka's world-renowned Abarth collection in Japan. As the story goes, Kosaka was keen on acquiring the car, but Fiat refused to sell it.

    That is, unless Kosaka were willing to open a museum. Kosaka's response was the only one fit for a wealthy car collector: Whether it was purely to acquire the is up for debate, but I would be hard pressed to blame him.
