The Carlo Abarth's Fiat conversions were both very popular and equally successful on the racing circuit. His first Fiat 600-bodied car appeared in 1956 and was later offered as a kit conversion as popularity surged. In the late 1960s, Fiat introduced the 767cc engined 600D. Abarth's conversion included increasing the displacement to 847cc, and applied additional engine modifications bringing the little car's top speed to 90 mph. To handle the additional power and to improve performance, disc brakes were added to the front, sportier suspension fitted on all four corners, and a front radiator added. Cosmetic improvements were very visible, such as the scorpion logos and other branding. The result was the 850 TCs, meaning Turismo Competizione, which were constructed to comply with homologation requirements for racing. In 1963 the won the Nurburgring event resulting in the 'Nurburgring' nickname applied to these small, capable machines. The 850 TC was very successful during its racing career, achieving seven straight manufacturer's championship and three European Challenge Touring class victories.

This 1962 Fiat Abarth 850TC Nurburgring has traveled 23,600 miles since new. It is finished in red and white with an Abarth checkered roof pattern. The interior features Jaeger-Abarth gauges and correct Abarth badges; it has been updated with a roll cage and Cobra racing seats with four-point harnesses. There are caliper hinges that keep the engine lid open.

In 2008 this Berlina was brought to the Automobiles of Amelia presented by RM Auctions where it had an estimated value of $16,000 - $24,000. As the gavel fell for the final time, the lot had been sold.
