Despite being tiny and fluffy, the Abarth 500 is a full-on exotica in its own right. The car gives you the joys of driving a 100 grand car for one fifth of the price. Now, SR Auto got their hands of an Abarth 500 recently, and went stoonad on it with Novitec tuning parts.
The little beast gets Novitec Challenge Corse professional suspension system that drops the ride height further than what the factory deems right. Then it gets a set of 17-inch Novitec N10 to complement the suspension. Together they make the 500 so planted on the ground it almost feels like a go kart to drive now. But don’t ask about the ride comfort.
Performance-wise, they went for a Magneti Marelli engine controller unit and power pedal, as well as a Craven Speed short shifter kit. This car is one fine track toy.
