STUDIO FIAT | 2013 FIAT ABARTH 500
Starting price: $23,495
Engineered for drivers with a passion for performance, the FIAT 500 Abarth puts legendary racing heritage into an exhilarating track-ready package with modern styling and a long list of standard comfort and technology features. Turbocharged, lowered and tuned, with 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque, the FIAT 500 Abarth is built to deliver non-stop driving thrills.
The FIAT 500 Abarth has an unmistakable look – a bold, aggressive stance that makes a dramatic statement about the power within. The aerodynamic fascias and spoiler, together with side-sill ground effects, create an athletic profile while adding road-gripping downforce. Available accent-colour mirror caps and bodyside stripe leave no doubts about the Abarth’s racing pedigree.
The FIAT 500 Abarth’s cockpit is inspired by the demands of the track. High-back bucket seats with wrap-around side bolsters keep you positioned comfortably when accelerating through tight corners. The flat-bottom leather-wrapped steering wheel provides optimum space-efficiency, while aluminum pedal covers provide a distinct racing look and feel underfoot.
Engineered for optimum weight, performance and style, the wheels of the FIAT 500 Abarth bear the final responsibility for converting the car’s impressive horsepower and torque into equally impressive action. Standard 16-inch performance aluminum wheels are outfitted with race-ready Pirelli four season tires – 17-inch forged aluminum wheels are available in Hyper Black or Gloss White finish.
The FIAT 500 Abarth comes ready to deliver audio performance to match its track performance via a standard 6-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 sound system with auxiliary input jack. You also have the option of turbocharging your sound with the available studio-quality BeatsTM Audio system, featuring an 8-inch subwoofer and a generous 368-watt 8-channel amplifier.
1.4L MULTIAIR® TURBO ENGINGE
The award-winning 1.4L 16v turbocharged MultiAir® engine is the result of decades of track-focused design, producing a remarkable 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Twin intercoolers deliver cooler, higher density air for optimum power. The Abarth-tuned powertrain control module (PCM) provides specific engine calibrations to maximize horsepower and torque.
HEAVY DUTY MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Every powertrain component is engineered to deliver on the MultiAir® engine’s turbocharged, track-ready promise. This durable heavy-duty C510 five-speed manual transmission is no exception, geared to offer quick acceleration and impressive top speed without sacrificing outstanding fuel efficiency.
Throughout the FIAT 500 Abarth, precision-engineered components work together to maximize on-road performance as well as comfort. Dual-valve Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) KONI® front shock absorbers deliver maximum grip, while stiffer spring rates and a 0.6-inch (15mm) lower ride height improve handling and minimize body roll.
TORQUE TRANSFER CONTROL
Abarth®-tuned Torque Transfer Control (TTC) automatically distributes torque between the front wheels, minimizing understeer and maximizing traction. It operates in conjunction with the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system to transfer torque from a front wheel that slips to one that grips for world-class performance and improved at-the-limit handling.
TURBO BOOST GAUGE
The FIAT 500 Abarth features an exclusive analogue turbo boost gauge which serves double duty as an indicator of turbocharger pressure as well as a shift indicator. The shift light signals the optimum point for changing gears, and adjusts its recommended shift point toward the redline when Sport mode is activated.
SAFETY & SECURITY
The safety of the occupants of a vehicle is of the utmost importance in both motorsport and everyday driving situations.
STATE OF THE ART SAFETY TECHNOLOGY
Several advanced safety systems help ensure your FIAT 500 Abarth is always moving in the right direction. Three-mode Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps maintain directional control, while all-speed traction control limits wheel spin for maximum traction. Hill Start Assist helps prevent rollback when starting by sustaining brake pressure briefly after you take your foot off the pedal.
To provide stopping power with proportionate response and finesse, the Fiat 500 Abarth features a high-performance brake system with semi-metallic brake linings at all four corners. Larger 11.1-inch ventilated rotors provide greater stopping power (up from 10.1-inch). Both front and rear brake calipers are lacquered in Rosso (red) paint for an athletic track-ready appearance.
SEVEN STANDARD AIRBAGS
Seven standard air bags provide occupants with outstanding protection in the event of a crash: advanced multistage driver and front-passenger air bags, a driver’s knee air bag, front-seat mounted side air bags and side-curtain air bags which extend protection to passengers in all rows.
