When it was back in 1960, not all the cars were as aerodynamic as we see them today. Very few, like this Abarth 1000 Bialbero were made in order to achieve the maximum out of its aerodynamic body. Gooding & Company wishes to take this years auction further with this very example which is expected to fetch more than $1.47 million or an even higher price tag.
La Principessa, the Italian words for ‘the princess’ is actually the best term for this car. It uses a 1.0 L, 4-cylinder motor producing 100 HP and comes with a drag coefficient of just 0.20. The Tesla Model S currently has its Cd equal to 0.24.
The car has 9 world records on its name which includes driving 72 hours at an average speed of 116 mph and averaging 118.7 mph for around 10,000 kms.
