Track Day: FIAT Abarth

Track Day: FIAT Abarth

We spent a day at Autobahn Country Club outside of Chicago putting the 2019 FIAT 124 Spider Abarth and FIAT 500 Abarth through their paces, while honing our track skills with the Skip Barber Racing School. Both the cars and instruction made for a gearhead’s paradise.

Driven: FIAT 124 Spider

We recently spent a week behind the wheel of FIAT’s latest roadster – which simultaneously pays tribute to the classic 124 Spider and shares bones with the excellent ND MX-5 Miata. Find out what we thought of this Japanese-Italian love child in our full review on 95octane.

Cyriak x FIAT

Cyriak x FIAT

Surrealist animator Cyriak’s latest clip is a playful tribute to the ultimate Italian city car – the FIAT 500. All we can say is if the actual 500 skated on tiny cars under its wheels, that’d be awesome – and we’d drive one every day.

Rebuilding a Fiat 500 Engine

Rebuilding a Fiat 500 Engine

A fun time-lapse video for gearheads, as the lovely Giovanna Parascandolo takes a fully disassembled engine from a 1967 Fiat 500 F and reassembles it. She says it took her about two full days to complete the task, but it’s been digested down to just under 4 minutes.

LEGO Ideas members saabfan and gabriele.zannotti’s proposal for a LEGO set based on the 1968 Fiat 500 L. The scale model of the vintage Italian beetle is made of 1,157 pieces with lots of moving parts. It even has an Abarth 595 variant.

FIAT Abarth 124 Spider

FIAT Abarth 124 Spider

Abarth pours its crazy sauce on the Miata-based FIAT 124 Spider. It packs a 170hp turbo 4, chassis reinforcements, a limited-slip diff, Brembo brakes, Bilstein dampers, an awesome exhaust note, and an anti-glare black hood, all without losing its 50/50 weight balance.

2017 FIAT 124 Spyder

2017 FIAT 124 Spyder

Sharing its bones with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the 124 Spyder pays homage to FIAT’s roadster heritage. The Miata drives great, and FIAT’s styling looks great, so we have no complaints here. An added bonus: its 1.4L turbo 4 makes 24% more torque than Mazda’s engine.

1953 Fiat V8 Supersonic

1953 Fiat V8 Supersonic

The 8V is a unicorn among Fiat’s mass-market wares: a touring sports car with a 110bhp 2L V8 engine. But the 8V Supersonic is even rarer. Out of the 114 8Vs, only 15 were blessed with the Ghia body designed by Giovanni Savonuzzi.

Oemmedi Fiat x Lamborghini

Oemmedi Fiat x Lamborghini

Oemmedi Meccanica’s custom Fiat 500 may look like a life-size toy car, but this little bug has the heart of a bull – a 6.2-liter V12 from a Lamborghini Murcielago, to be exact. That’s 580hp in a 1,100lb. car. Build video here.

Fiat 500 Abarth: House Arrest

Fiat 500 Abarth: House Arrest

We are enjoying the car more than Charlie Sheen doing his thing in Fiat’s latest advert for their Abarth. Unlike this guy, he won’t need to do any cleaning up afterwards either. (Thanks Tom!)

Fiat 500 Abarth: Seduction

Fiat 500 Abarth: Seduction

This somewhat racy but rather amusing ad from Fiat showcases their new 500 Abarth, which is apparently so seductive you may lose track of your wits. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. (Thanks Nick!)

Fiat Loop the Loop

Fiat Loop the Loop

The video may be in Dutch, but defying gravity knows no language barriers here as British stuntman Steve Truglia completes a 360° loop in a Fiat 500 to promote the 2011 AutoRAI show.

Abarth 500C/Punto Evo

Fiat’s Abarth in-house tuners double the fun with the 500C and the Punto Evo, the former a semi-convertible with a 140 hp 1.4L turbo four and the latter with a turbo 165 hp 1.4L.

Celebrating Fiat’s return to the US, BRM’s Abarth V12-T-44 Chronograph goes for the racer/industrial look; it sports a black titanium case, chrome hands, Nomex strap, and red stitching.
