VW Abarth Exhaust / Muffler
Carlo Abarth started his business in the fifties, he made his fortune and fame with the production of his famous Abarth exhaust systems for almost every make. Production in 1956: 100.000 units, 1959: 164.607 units, 1967: 365.000 units
In 1955, VW decided that 2 exhausts was better than one. Abarth continued the reasoning by proposing a pot with 4 exhaust outlets! The sound of an Abarth pot is much more serious, more sport ... There are pots for 1200-1300, 1500 and type 3. It is extremely difficult today to find original Abarth pots. Currently, only the Japanese manufacturer flat4 offers reproductions.
Abarth claimed that it increased engine power up to 50 per cent taking acceleration to 60mph from 32 to 16 seconds :-)
