    Just for the record, the blue one above is a 2-litre. Apparently it was capable of speeds up to 270km/h...

    yes the two litre is a DOHC (as you can see the 1300 is just an OHV engine), here is another one

    One is a long tail and the other isn't.

    I believe that Abarth used similar bodies for different creations, altough I could be wrong.

    similar is the correct word, never the same though, which makes identifying the different models a nightmare.

    Here is a 1000 (or 1mille or monomille), shot at Pebble Beach in 2005...
