Scorpion
This dangerous as well as beautiful animal, one of the most famous scorpions of the "Typhlochactidae" family, is the badge of Abarth, the Italian racing car company dedicated since 1949 to engineering high performance preparations, specially for Fiat mechanics.

One of their classic preparations made at the end of the 60s corresponds to the "Fiat Abarth 695 SS Assetto Corsa", fitting the popular Fiat vehicle with the greatest technical advances of the time.
