Carlos Abarth was considered a master at converting an ordinary production car into a raging "bomba". Although best known for his Fiat conversations, he also was involved with Ferrari, Lancia and Porsche. (Source: Larry Sanata - Autoweek Dec 22 2008).

Abarth was founded in Turin in 1949 by Abarth and Armando Scagliarini. The logo depicts a scorpion on a red and yellow background. The first Abarth based on a Fiat was produced in 1952 - the Abarth 1500 Biposto. Abarth formed a racing team and were moderately successful. In addition they produced tuning kits mainly for Italian vehicles.

In 1971 Abarth was sold to Fiat and the racing team to Enzo Osella. From this time on a name of Fiat family vehicles were given the Abarth designation. The name few in disuse but was revived in 2007.
