2008 Fiat 500 Abarth - Not Approved

2008 Fiat 500 Abarth

There is a lot written about the Fiat 500 on Wikipedia. It seems that every month, Fiat comes out with some new or special version of this little car( counted about 29 different special versions since it was released). The car has been sold since 2007, over 1 million have been sold. The car has been produced for the US market since December 2010, so its really not that important that it wasn't approved for Show or Display.  The car isn't technologically significant, and was made in numbers much greater than 500 cars.

The 500 Abarth is a performance model of Fiat 500. The 1.4 L engine with IHI RHF3-P turbocharger is rated at 135 PS (99 kW; 133 hp) at 5500 rpm and 180 N·m (130 lb·ft) (206 N·m (152 lb·ft) in sport mode) torque at 3000 rpm. It includes a five-speed C510 transmission, low ride suspension, dualdrive electric power steering with SPORT setting, 6.5 x 16” aluminium alloy rim with 195/45 R16 tyres, four-wheel disc brakes (front ventilated). Interior includes turbo pressure gauge, gear shift Indicator, aluminum foot pedals, Blue&Me MAP with Telemetry monitoring and GPS system. The car costs GB£13,600 in the UK.
