Only for its off-road capabilities, obviously.

This insane trumpet is in fact the one-off Abarth 2000 Scorpione concept car built in 1969 by Pininfarina. Based on the Fiat Abarth 2000 Sport Spider's chassis, it comes in rosso corsa with a 220 horsepower four-cylinder DOHC that shoots flames.


The car can also be familiar to you because it was featured in Rainer W. Schlegelmich's famous book '70s Concept Cars: Yesterday's Dreams of the Future'.

While it usually rests in a museum, it got filled up with petrol for the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este and since it looks like a runner, I want it badly. I have a thing for Abarths.


Just look at that back! Or side! Or front! Mamma mia!
