Karl Abarth was born in Viena on the 15th of November 1908 and moved to Italy in 1931 where he became an auto designer and five-time European motorcycling champion.
He also established Abarth & C. in 1949 where he manufactured racing cars and performance exhaust systems, some of them being present on the market to this day, the best way to distinguish an Abarth product being the scorpion logo his birth sign.
Tuning and racing with motorcycles were young Carlos career choices, and in 1930 he made his first motorcycle under aBarth name. An accident during a race in Linz, however, forced him to stop with the solo racing.
