The history of four world-leading Italian motoring brands
From the most emblematic models to the most successful, revolutionary people, and the most significant events, this section illustrates and celebrates the cornerstones of Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Abarth.
650 exhibitors, 72,000 square metres of exhibition area, 600 models on display, more than 100 clubs present: Rétromobile is back at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre.
At this prestigious French auto show, hosted at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles exhibition centre in Paris, FCA Heritage is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Abarth brand.
Abarth's history is often intertwined with that of other brands, in a long series of successful joint projects that consolidated its legendary status as a top name in international motorsport. To commemorate this extraordinary history of synergies, FCA Heritage is attending Rétromobile with a selection of fine classic cars, originating from the partnership between the brand with the scorpion badge and other Italian brands now belonging to the FCA Group.
Visitors can admire truly extraordinary cars, built in limited editions or even as one-offs, such as the Alfa Romeo 750 Competizione (1955), a project on which Karl Abarth worked with great enthusiasm, having always been an admirer of Alfa Romeo engines. The FCA Heritage stand is also showcasing the Fiat Nuova 500 with Abarth "Record" tuning (1958), the first small hatchback transformed by Abarth's talent into a record-breaker, and the Lancia Rally 037 (1982), which in 1983 dominated the Group B category in both the world and European rally championships.
Also on show is an Abarth 1000 Monoposto Record Classe G, the car in which Karl Abarth personally set the scorpion brand's 100th record in 1965, plus an Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, a supercar created by the Alfa Romeo Style Centre and built in a limited run of just 500 units. This special-edition model is now offered for sale as part of the "Reloaded by Creators" project.
Displayed alongside these priceless rarities are the new Abarth 124 GT "70th Anniversary" and the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
