Small cars can be fun, they can also be stylish and cool like the Fiat 500, a chic everyday city that looks good, drives ok and is easy to drive. The beauty with small cars as well is if you give them a few nip and tucks, upgrade the power then you can have a really good handling pocket rocket which is exactly what FCA did for their Abarth brand and boy what a success it has been.
Packed full of testosterone and making its rivals look fat and flabby the Abarth is fun in bucket loads whether it’s the 595 145hp version or the slightly madder 190hp biposto version, which we tested in Rivale guise last year https://enzari.com/2018/10/abarth-695c-rivale-yacht-inspired-hot-hatch/
However there are some people out there who always want more, in the car world these crazy people must wake up in the morning and have visions of their car going so fast it sets the road on fire, well sometimes that’s almost the case.
Old School Garage in Italy, who specialise in tuning and modifying these little Abarths have gone beyond 200hp, even past the 250hp mark…how does 360hp sound? Well lots of pops and bangs for one!
The standard Abarth can be a little on the loud side but strap in a Garret GTX2860 Turbo and your turning that sound level up quite a bit, along with some aero modifications this pocket rocket monster blasts around producing its own music to entertain all those around.
jump onboard, take a ride as this 360hp Abarth blasts round Monza…
