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

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.
