Abarth is part of the Fiat Group Automobiles but was original founded by Carlo Abarth and Armando Scagliarini in Bologna on 31st March 1949. They started by manufacturing high performance exhausts and raced Cisitalia Cars.
Fiat bought Abarth on 31st July 1971, after many years of racing a mixture of Porsche 904’s and Ferrari Dino’s, but concentrating making exhausts for Fiat. Under Fiat’s ownership, Abarth became the group’s racing department, preparing Fiat’s rally cars such as the Fiat 124 and the 131. They also helped develop the Lancia 037 rally car.
In the 2000’s Fiat used the Abarth brand on a number of models including the Fiat Stilo Abarth.
In 2007, Fiat relaunched the Abarth brand with the Grande Punto Abarth, the brand is once again separate from Fiat.
Current Abarth models include the Abarth Punto Evo, the Abarth 500 and the Abarth 500C.

What our customers are saying
“Cocoon Vehicles Ltd Derby really have looked after me with regards to vehicle hire. I find their prices highly competitive, well within my company’s budget, which allow me to take receipt of a brand new, high end, luxury sports model car of my choice every six months. They’re a professional and approachable team, I deal with Paul Stone (Managing Sales Director), Gordon, Rhys and Katie are all friendly and being able to address the team by name is refreshing. Having dealt with most of the car hire firms in Derby who quite frankly offer basic model cars at high prices with very often hidden charges that they fail to inform you of. That along with their ‘over promise under deliver’ attitude in most cases left me feeling unsure of vehicle hire altogether. However, with Paul and the team I’ve always felt valued. Well done guys.“
