Abarth 1300 OT Berlinetta Colucci 1966

In 1965 Abarth homologated the 1300 OT (omologato turismo) to compete in the FIA Division 1. It was Abarth's replacement for the Abarth Simca 1300, which had been built on a Simca 1000 platform chassis; the new car was based on a Fiat 850 floor pan, which was nearly identical. Like its predecesso, the 1300 OT had transverse leaf spring, hydraulic dampers and upper wishbones at the front and semi-trailing arms with coil springs and telescopic dampers at the rear.

Also similar to its predecessor was the rear mounted, five bearing, 1290 cc, double overhead camshaft engine, with twin Weber 45DCOE carburettors and dry-sump lubrication mated to an Abarth modified Fiat 850 transaxle. By now engine power had risen to 147 bhp at 8800 rpm, or 114 bhp  per litre.

The 1300 OT body was built in fibreglass by Sibona and Basano according to a design by Mario Colucci.  Sibona and Basano had also built the bodies for the last of the Abarth Simca.

This car was entered by Stefan Hamelmann from Germany at the 2011 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este.
