Carspotting Japan: Classic Fiat Nuova 500

Carspotting Japan: Classic Fiat Nuova 500
Fiat is discontinuing sales of the smaller 500 in the United States. So instead of throwing a fit over the demise of the little Fiat 500 and its feisty Abarth doppelgänger, let’s take a look at the vehicle that first sported the triple digit badge: The aptly named, “Fiat Nuova 500.” It’s not often that you come across classic Italian cars in rural Japan.

Concepts from Future Past: 1969 Fiat Abarth 2000 Scorpione
Designed by the inimitable Pininfarina, this gorgeous concept car embraced the best of Italian sportscar design, while sporting the almost always daft underpinnings of Fiat’s Abarth division. The one-off prototype was based on the chassis of a Fiat Abarth 2000 Sport Spider, but clearly had a dramatically more impressive body design than its sibling.

The Mighty Roar of the Abarth 124 Spider
Of all the cars coming out this year, the one I’m currently most excited about driving is the Abarth 124 Spider. After all, this 2-seater shares its DNA with the already awesome Mazda MX-5, but it looks even better, has a more powerful engine, and then to top things off, it’s been massaged by the house of Abarth.

FIAT Abarth 124 Spider: This Is the Fiata You’re Looking For

FIAT Abarth 124 Spider: This Is the Fiata You’re Looking For
When FIAT announced the 124 Spider late last year, I couldn’t help but be a little disappointed. Yes, it had the turbocharged engine from the 500 Abarth, but it wasn’t designed to be the snarling little roadster that it could’ve been.

Pogea Racing Unlocks Fiat 500 Abarth Euro 6 ECU

Pogea Racing Unlocks Fiat 500 Abarth Euro 6 ECU
The aftermarket tuning specialists at Pogea Racing have applied their magic to the Fiat 500 Abarth and boosted the 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine to 168hp. That may not seem like a big power output, considering the 500 Abarth rolls off the line with a 160 hp under the hood, but it does mean that Pogea was able to access the locked down EUR 6 ECU of the 500, something that other aftermarket tuners haven’t yet been able to accomplish.
