This ABARTH A112 Cup racing car is one of currently around 6 of around 60 racing vehicles built from 1984/85, with a real racing car history.
In 1984 and ’85, Fiat Automobil AG carried out the Lancia A112 Abarth Cup brand cup together with the ADAC.
The parts packages for upgrading the vehicles for the Cup were offered through the sports department of Fiat AG based in Salzstraße, 7100 Heilbronn.
The vehicle offered here was used by Christian Vogler in 1984 in the Lancia A112 Abarth Cup.
For this purpose, the A112 Abarth was bought by „Autohaus Eisele KG“ from Lauffen am Neckar, registered on April 25, 1984 and entered in the A112 Cup under the name of „Autohaus Hörmann Fiat Lancia Motorsport Kempten“. Among other things, the vehicle started with the starting number 7 in various rounds of the A112 Abarth Cup.
Through the friendship between Christian Vogler and the current owner of the car, the A112 became the property of the current owner after one racing season in 1985. The vehicle was registered until 1995. Over the past decades, the A112 has been meticulously cared for and maintained.
Nevertheless, in 2020 the owner decided to completely restore the vehicle.
In this course, all attachments were unscrewed, the body repainted, all cavities sealed and the engine and transmission dismantled and – where necessary – reassembled with original new parts. Since the owner is a trained coachbuilder and used to work for Fiat AG in Heilbronn, he was able to draw on extensive specialist knowledge and contacts.
The following parts have been renewed:
Complete brakes front and rear
Rear brake valve
Wishbones front and rear
Wheel bearings front and rear
Homokinetic joints in front
Transmission gasket set and all bearings in the
Trunk engine gasket set
