Abasrth, the Italian racing car maker founded by Austrian-Italian Carlo Abarth and Italian Armando Scagliarini officialy confirmed today that their first stand alone sports car will be unveiled in the next two years.
Head of sales and marketing at Abarth, Antonino Labate, told AutoCar in an interview that the Abarth sports car will be launched within the next two years. However, contrary to previous reports, Labate said that Lotus will not be involved in the process, nor will it supply the Elise underpinnings.
“The brand is doing so well we will definitely bring our own standalone Abarth coupe model to market within the next two years,” said Labate.
Abarth has reportedly been drooling at the thought of its own halo car ever since its re-launch and Labate reportedly suggested it would be a two-seater only.
