Based on the Fiat 500D, the 595 was introduced in 1963. The engine was enlarged to 593.7cc by increasing the bore and numerous other modifications were made to the inlet and exhaust manifolds, camshaft, sparkplugs, cylinder head, pistons, valve springs etc. The end result produced 27bhp. The car was otherwise little changed, a revcounter and oil pressure guage being options.
The next development of 600D was a twin-cam 850 engine, with 58bhp (or 60bhp in the competition version), introduced in 1963. As some other versions, disc brakes were fitted all round and a radiator was fitted at the front on the competition car. Logically, twin-camshafts then followed for the 1000 engine, thus liberating 80bhp @ 7,400rpm.

Abarth still manage to cram an awful amount of performance into a tiny package and on Anthony Crook's stand there were examples of the 1000, the Simca-Abarth 1300 and the Abarth 2000. With 180 b.h.p. at 7,30o r.p.m. all behind the axle line this must be a fearsome device to drive round corners, but it's straight-line performance should be terrific. Abarth claim a top speed of 150 m.p.h. Also shown was the modified Fiat 600 with 1,000-c.c. engine.
