Abarth - but how does it sound . . .

In Italian? I mean, how do Italians pronounce "Abarth"? Puzzles me, because as far as I know there is no "th" sound in Italian (or in Carlo's original homeland of Austria), as in our English "the", "this", or "bath". It would be nice if someone here could get us all pronouncing it correctly.
