The 1967 Turin Motorshow saw Abarth displaying their new engine designed for motorsport, a 6-litre V12 unit. Unfortunately due to changing regulations it was never used. It was a 120deg V12 with a single camshaft in each bank. The total capacity was 5982,84cc (92x75mm). Four triple carburettors (Weber 40 IDA 3C) were fitted, the compression ratio was 12:1 and the lubrication system used a dry sump. Total power was 610bhp @ 6,700rpm.

A further development of the OT1000, and still using a modified Fiat 850 bodyshell, the OT2000 used a 1964cc Abarth/Simca twin-cam engine with twin 45 DCOE carburettors which managed to produce around 185bhp. As usual with Abarths, production figures are rather uncertain, but very few, probably less than five, were built.
