Abarth Fiat 1000 Bialbero Le Mans

The engine was equipped with Abarth’s proprietary Bialbero twin camshaft system, which allowed for better airflow and increased power output. It had a top speed of around 200 km/h (124 mph) and could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 10 seconds.

The car had a lightweight body made of aluminum and was designed to be aerodynamic. It had a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout and was equipped with independent suspension on all four wheels. The brakes were hydraulic discs on all four wheels.

The Abarth Fiat 1000 Bialbero Le Mans competed in the 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans race, but unfortunately did not finish due to engine problems. However, the car was successful in other endurance races, winning its class in the 1960 Nürburgring 1000 km and the 1961 12 Hours of Sebring races.

Today, the Abarth Fiat 1000 Bialbero Le Mans is a highly sought-after classic car, with only a limited number of examples remaining in existence. It is valued by collectors for its racing pedigree, advanced engineering, and rarity.
