The Double Bubble was a nickname for the Italian made Fiat-Abarth 750 Zagato. The Double Bubble car was a collaboration between several Italian automakers and coach builders. The base of the car was Fiat, which was modified for greater performance by Abarth. The design house and custom coachmaker Zagato made the uniquely styled body, with curves that gave it the double bubble moniker. The car started out as a Fiat 600, but when the customizations were complete, practically nothing but the floorpan was still a true Fiat.
The 750 Zagato first made its appearance at the Turin Motor Show. There were two versions produced, one for the local Italian market and a more luxurious version for the American market. The Abarth tuned engine had a larger bore than the original engine, lighter flywheel, and a bigger carburetor and other changes that nearly doubled the power.
750 GT Bialbero model was released in 1957, which had a more powerful engine. It performed very well on the racing circuit in the US. It won over 700 races worldwide. It won at both Sebring and Daytona in the under 1000cc category.
The rarest of these models was the Zagato Spyder convertible, which was debuted at the 1957 Turin Motor Show. It is believed that only 2 or 4 of these models were ever produced. It had the distinctive Zagato smooth front end and fins at the rear. The 747cc engine propelled the car to a top speed of 95 mph.
