Fiat Abarth 850 TC

850TC released in February 1961. Based on the 600D, this features a heavily modified engine (847cc with 52bhp at 5,800rpm), suspension, fuel feed and exhaust system as well as having an extra radiator and disc brakes at the front. Two higher levels of tuning are available: the 850S with 55bhp and the 850SS with 57bhp, the main difference being the increased compression ratio.
In 1961 Abarth launched the 1500S Rally (1500 based), designed for the latter sport. Externally almost identical to the production car, it has 108bhp at 5,800rpm (up from 72 in the standard car !) and disc brakes all round.
