The Fiat-Abarth 850TC Carlo (Turismo Competizione, or ‘going by contention’) was introduced towards the end of 1960. It used the Fiat 600 fundamental bodyshell with suitable predominant changes, most detectable of them being the additional nose case that was given by Abarth to oblige the oil cooler grid. Wheel bends were in like manner protuberance to oblige the most extended wrangles that contemporary regulations would recognize, while the engine was a fourcylinder in-line unit mounted in the auto’s tail, got from the Fiat 600, taken out to an apparent 847cc point of confinement making around 52bhp.
In 1962 the 850TC Nürburgring model was displayed, with 55bhp power yield at 6,500 rpm. The name of the world-surely understood German circuit in the Eifel mountains had been grasped to perceive the Fiat Abarth 850s’ class triumph at the 1961 500km race there.
Hence the 850TC course of action itself would be trailed by the 850TC/SS with possibly more torque; which was renamed the 850TC Nürburgring Corsa. In more detail the engine was gotten from the Fiat 600D 4-chamber blueprint with bore and stroke of 62.5mm x 69mm dislodging 847cc. On a weight extent of 9.8:1 and breathing through a singular Solex 32PBIC carburettor the minimal engine developed around 58bhp. Transmission was by method for a 4 or 5 speed gearbox and plate brakes were highlighted at the front, drum brakes at the back. The two-passage four-seat Fiat 600D bodyshell was suitably sustained and set where legal – or occasionally where not for contention use and today its support of novel layout front-opening ‘suicide gateways’ is striking. The auto’s little estimations – wheelbase only 2000mmm, front and raise track widths 1150mm and 1160mm restricted its general weight to around 470Kg 1,
