After the Fiat 500 got some serious tuning from MS Design and H&R, here’s what we were expecting, the Fiat 500 Abarth. Though rumors say that the Abarth SS will have 150 hp, it looks like the 1.4 liter turbocharged engine will develop 180 hp. Yep, you read right, 180 hp. Also featuring a modified front bumper with additional air-intakes, new side skirts, new rear bumper and dual-exhaust pipes, the car will probably aim at the Mini Cooper S, especially that Fiat made no secret that is wants to enter the premium mini car market.
I know the car looks good, the figures look good but still, will Fiat have the power to challenge the Cooper S? I am a little skeptical, so what do you think? View more photos after the jump so you can see what we’re talking about.
