The Abarth 1500 Biposto is a one-off vehicle build in an experimental exercise in 1952. Designed by Franco Scaglione who worked for Bertone at the time, was displayed at the 1952 Turin Motor Show. Soon after the show, the car was sold to Packard and transported to Detroit where it was used as the design inspiration for new vehicles. In 1953, the Biposto was given as a prize to motoring journalist Dick Smith for suggesting a new Packard advertising slogan. The vehicle was used by Smith for almost two decades until it was put into the storage until 2003 when it was sold on auction. The overall look of the car was very futuristic for its time.
