Carlo Abarth’s creations achieved a high level of reputation with their racing successes, and Abarth also offered his powerful and feather-light coupés for the road. In 1962, for example, the small, racy GT coupé with a 1,000cc engine was offered as a Monomille (with one camshaft) and a Bialbero (with two camshafts). The Monomille was far more suitable for the road and in a contemporary driving report by “Auto Motor und Sport” it was attested to be an easy and smooth car to drive. With an kerb weight of only 560 kilograms, the Monomille achieved an excellent top speed of 173 kilometres per hour. “You feel as if you are in a tailor-made suit in the little car, you can turn corners very quickly with it and feel a sensation of fun when you arrow up the mountains, drawing a straight line with it on a winding road.” Equipped with independent suspension all round and disc brakes, the Abarth Monomille was technically sophisticated. However, with a purchase price of DM 19,800, it also cost over four times as much as a VW Beetle and therefore only sold around fifty cars.
This Abarth Monomille was in the Maranello Rosso Museum in San Marino for over 40 years and was brought back to life only a few years ago when the museum was closed. The main restoration was made in Switzerland between 2017 and 2018 to the highest standards. Equipped with an original Abarth 1000 Corsa engine, this free-revving machine produces a staggering 84hp. Only five of the cars were built in this upgraded version. At the time, this development stage also served Abarth as a test engine for further performance improvements. In 2019, the engine also underwent a rebuild and the expenses were invoiced at around CHF 18,000. All work was precisely listed and every detail of the vehicle was perfected. In total, over CHF 150’000.- was invested in the technical equipment and bodywork to bring this Abarth Monomille to perfection in this exceptional condition.
