Jalopnik Choice Award: 1959 Fiat Abarth Zagato 750

Illustration for article titled Jalopnik Choice Award: 1959 Fiat Abarth Zagato 750

With the old fashioneds well emptied and the hoopla surrounding the Pebble Beach Concours moving into forgotten, it is now time to present the never prestigious Jalopnik Choice Award. This 1959 Fiat 600-based Abarth Zagato 750 is part of the San Diego Collection, and on the block for a 125K. The Karl "Carlo" Abarth worked 750cc engine kicks out 57 horsepower, which propels the double bubble top coupe to a top speed of 112 mph! Fun to drive invariably comes as part of car's 1200-pound curb weight. Style is courtesy of Zagato. The final bid on this as-yet-unsold car was 88K. We're hoping to find the 500-dollar restorable version hidden underneath seventy three boxes of old Sunset magazines at a Burbank garage sale. [Fiat Zagato via the San Diego Collection]

Talk about fun. This is why we need Abarth back in the US. Small, lightweight, fast and fun. I'd rather go 112mph in this than 104mph in a stinking Prius any day, especially because of the kooky paintjob.
