An interesting fact about the A112 was that initially, Abarth engineers tuned the engine to 100hp! Later on the development, they decided to lower it to 70hp for the sake of driveability and economy...
My father once told me that nothing could keep up with it on 1st and 2nd gear at the time (1977), but as for cornering, it was a bit... challenging
This car raised an entire generation of repairers in Greece. Anyone who had one of these, crashed at least once (including my father!)
But, anyone who wanted to be anybody had or dreamed one back then.
