Extreme Fiat 500 by Abarth
Fiat 500 bitten by “scorpion” of Abarth — that still the knave! But what will turn out if tuners undertake the furious baby?
To think of the sizes haughtily — business ungrateful, after all compact sport cars in certain conditions have advantage over healthy fellows that demonstrated Mini which was repeatedly winning victories on rally of Monte-Carlo in the sixties. And who will afford unflattering or haughty statements to modern “hot” hatchbacks which on dynamics a little than concede to larger shells? Tuning penalties on the basis of “pocket rockets” especially well own gift of belief of owners of expensive and prestigious sport compartments not to be confused under wheels. For example, Abarth 695 Biposto, in the childhood the former Fiat 500 finished by Alpha-N Performance office not only is spiteful by sight, but also goes as appropriate.
Our hero was initially modified in sports court division of Abarth. Version 695 Biposto with 1,4-liter turbo gives out quite adult 190 h.p. and 250 Nanometers (we do not forget that length of this small insect of 3657 mm, and weight is less than a ton), but at a tuning hatchback from the third-party company already of 214 h.p. and 296 Nanometers. It is enough return for breakthrough to 100 km/h for 5,9 with and the maximum speed in 230 km/h.
We believe, mad “Fiat” in all beauty will reveal on narrow twisting roads where the lion’s share of a victory depends on controllability. The benefit, enters its equipment the KW sport chassis. One of not numerous external differences from standard Abarth — 17-inch rims of OZ Racing Ultraleggera with tires 205/40 ZR 17. Upgrades are offered more modest 140-strong modification: after tuning it gives out 170 h.p. and 238 Nanometers. Improvements are provided and for Abarth 595 Turismo (160 and 230 Nanometers). Its return increases to 199 h.p. and 239 Nanometers. And execution of 595 Competizione is “shaken” from 180 h.p. and 250 Nanometers on 21 h.p. and 46 Nanometers.
On the Geneva motor show the Fiat company presented a hatchback and the Tipo station wagon. They will be offered with petrol and 1,4 and 1,6 l diesel engines.
Recently the photospy photographed a prototype of the successor of the Fiat Punto model. The car is developed in Brazil and, obviously, debuts until the end of this year.
