Pogea Racing puts Fiat's city car on some serious steroids.
All Fiat 500 tune jobs now look inferior next to the tuned Abarth that Pogea Racing has created. The German firm has tuned 500 Abarths before, but its latest creation is just nuts. It managed to get 331 hp and 303 lb-ft of torque out of the Abarth’s 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. This extra power was made possible thanks in part to the addition of another fuel pump, a bigger intercooler and an upgraded turbocharger. Beefier intake and exhaust ducts were also added onto the 500.
Exterior mods include a new rear diffuser, bumper, front spoiler, vented hood and new bumper. All of this sits on 17-inch Oz Racing Super Turismo GT alloys. As you might have expected, a whole bunch of carbon fiber parts were used in the making of this custom job, and the rear seats were dumped to cut weight. A total of 71 pounds was dropped, which may not sound like a lot but consider the power bump and the small size of the 500 Abarth to begin with and it looks damn good. Pogea Racing says the Abarth can do 0 to 62 in 5.1 seconds and will top out at 163 mph. If you want to customize your own ride it’ll cost you $13,600 and the complete package (car included) will run $47,400.
