Immediately after the war Carlo Abarth, variously credited as being Yugoslavian or Austrian, settled in Italy and together with Rudolf Hruska became Porsche representatives to the Italian auto industry. One of their first briefs was to find a constructor for a proposed Formula 1 car. The Cisitalia company of Piero Dusio expanded the objective to include a complete product offering but after the financial collapse of the firm the F1 prototype and Dusio departed for South America.

Out of the collapse Abarth and Co. was formed with Carlo initially racing in the 1100cc sports racer classes with Cisitalia-based cars. The Cisitalia 1100 was developed and prepared in the new works and took 18 victories in their first year. At this time the commercial basis of the firm in silencer production was established. The first Abarth model, the 204 Berlinetta, based on a Fiat, was introduced at Turin in 1950. It set the pattern of Abarth producing performance-enchanced versions of production cars. His success in this was primarily in his ability to extract engine performance far beyond the original stock offering.

1952 saw the introduction of the 205, a luxury version of the 204 with Vignale bodywork and a Scaglione bodied version of the Fiat 1400. In 1955 Fiat put the 500 into production and it was to become the basis of his most famous offering, gradually increasing the capacity to 750cc. Eventually a special arrangement was reached with Fiat to develop the 850TC, whereby incomplete cars less front brakes, crankshaft, carburetor, and exhaust were furnished to Abarth, these being the items upon which the special was based. This model and the 1000 won innumerable victories on circuits all over the world and a number of European Touring Class Championships.

A parallel activity involved the preparation of world speed/distance record breakers, again of initially Fiat origin. Featuring aerodynamic coachwork by Bertone, Pininfarina, and Abarth these slippery record-breakers established 113 international and 5 world records. This car is a works-produced, roadgoing "replica" of one of these record breakers.

Owner by one owner for thirty years, the oral history of the car indicates it is ex-Roosevelt, but this has not been corraborated.
