With text pre­sented in Ital­ian and English, Abarth Mem­o­ries is an in­ti­mate and colour­ful por­trait of the fa­bled tun­ing and rac­ing firm. In­ter­views with more than 50 for­mer em­ploy­ees at Carlo Abarth’s fac­tory from 1949 to 1971 present an oral his­tory of the com­pany that goes be­yond its tech­ni­cal prow­ess to give an in­side look at ev­ery­thing from the de­vel­op­ment of the first tun­ing com­po­nents and board­room deals to Abarth’s suc­cess­ful rac­ing ca­reer. Gath­er­ing so many in­di­vid­u­als in one book is an im­pres­sive achieve­ment and their sto­ries are sup­ported by a wealth of pre­vi­ously un­seen ar­chive pho­to­graphs. Abarth Mem­o­ries is a fas­ci­nat­ing be­hindthe-scenes glimpse into a com­pany too of­ten de­picted in race sta­tis­tics.
