Zender Fiat Abarth 500 Corsa Stradale is About As Cool As a Fiat Can Get

Coolest Fiat Ever?

Tuning firm Zender has created a special Fiat 500 Abarth that maybe the coolest Fiat I have ever seen. The company created a new body kit for the Abarth 500 made from carbon fiber including widened fenders, a custom spoiler, and more.

The vehicle rides on a sport suspension with 18-inch wheels wearing performance tires. The most important part is that the stock 1.4-liter turbocharged engine has been beefed up to produce 236 hp. The engine also produces 247 pound-foot of torque.

Zender claims that the special Abarth can reach 62 mph in 6.5 seconds and reach 124 mph and 24.7 seconds. The top speed is 144 mph. I can only imagine those feats are accompanied by a torrential amount of torque steer. Sadly, the company has no plans to make a production version of the special concept car.

Dodge has a fascinating history of building hot compacts, one prominent example being the Omni GLHS by Shelby, while the Caliber SRT-4 marked a low point in terms of style and refinement.

24 Hours of LeMons Michigan Day 1: Porsche 944, Geo Metro, Volkswagen Squareback Leading Classes

Oct 18 2014 11:21pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

After lining up the largest and most interesting field of Midwestern LeMons racers we’ve ever seen on Friday, we dropped the green flag on Saturday morning and presided over a drizzly, cold day of racing at GingerMan Raceway. When the checkered flag came out soon after sunset, we’d seen a lot of dramatic class battles and lead changes, and here’s how it all sorted out. There was once a time— actually, that time was the first eight years of LeMons racing— when the Porsche 944 was the mos ...

So, uh, this is awesome: Per Allpar, Fiat-Chrysler recently registered a trademark for “Trackhawk”. Given that the “Trailhawk” moniker is currently applied to an off-road-centric Cherokee model, it’s patently obvious that the new badge is destined for Jeep and that it will stand for on-pavement performance.
