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.

A Third Of Cars Need Suspension Fixes Every Year

Oct 25 2014 11:15am CDT | Source: Car Articles

The Audi RS6 and Mercedes R-Class are more likely to suffer suspension damage than any other cars in the UK, according to a new study by Warranty Direct. Fiat’s six-seater Multipla and the Jaguar XK sports car are the next most vulnerable, with 29 and 28.5 percent of Warranty Direct customers claiming for damage to axle and suspension components on their cars annually. Deteriorating, potholed roads in winter and the proliferation of speed bumps increase the likelihood of sus ...

Dodge Dart R/T Concept: The High-Performance Compact Dodge Needs to Build

Oct 24 2014 5:14pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

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. For the 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas, the carmaker has taken its sensible Dart and tweaked it significantly to make it digestible to more discerning enthusiasts. Painted in bright orange with matte black as a contrast co ...

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 ...
