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.

2016 Fiat 500X Caught Testing in Michigan: X Marks the Spot?

Sep 5 2014 10:12am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

What It Is: A fully camouflaged Fiat 500X mule captured while refueling in southeastern Michigan. Despite being cloaked entirely in basic black for maximum slimming effect, it’s clear the car underneath is sporting some rather exaggerated round, soft shapes. Although most of the bulges are simply inserts intended to throw gawkers off the trail, they can’t disguise the X’s similarities to the 500L, the 500’s larger, less-cute five-door sibling. Immediately obvious are the absence of the 500 ...

A Little Tribute To An Overshadowed Big Brother: The Fiat 600

Sep 1 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Right now, the most famous Fiat (at least in the US) is the Fiat 500. The 500 has become the iconic Fiat, the mascot of Fiat, and while it's certainly a car that earned that status, I've always felt that it's older big brother, the Fiat 600, never really got the credit ...

Roam If You Want To: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Full Pricing Out

Aug 28 2014 1:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The formula for the Jeep Grand Cherokee is pretty straightforward: Mix four-doors and (usually) four-wheel drive with a family-size vehicle and a reasonably comfortable and well-appointed interior. The recipe has proved so enticing that the Grand Cherokee is now available in six levels of trim, putting the venerated nameplate within reach of almost any buyer. The most affordable entry gets Laredo badging. Priced at $30,590 for rear-wheel drive and $32,590 for the four-whee ...

'Lincoln Lawyer' Star McConaughey Tabbed for Lincoln Ads

Don't drive a Lincoln? Matthew McConaughey thinks it'd be a lot cooler if you did. Earlier this year, the Hollywood A-lister's so-called McConaissance was fully realized when he won the Oscar for his "Dallas Buyers Club" performance. Now, Ford is hoping the born-again serious actor — who'd become a bit of a punchline in recent years, starring in poorly received romantic c ...

Here are five slow classics that pretended to be sporty

Aug 20 2014 1:47pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

The Subaru/Toyota twins are often derided for their lack of power. Enthusiasts everywhere have moaned that they have “only” 200 horsepower and about their “slow” eight-second zero to 60 time. Perhaps we’re too spoiled by living in a world where a properly optioned RAV4 can do zero to 60 in under seven seconds, but eight seconds isn’t all that slow.  There was a time when even the largest V8s struggled to make 200 horsepower and small-bore sports cars made do with double-digit power. ...
