Fiat 500 Abarth SS 160 Hp Coming in November
If you find the 135 Hp version of the all-new 500 Abarth a tad underpowered, there’s no need to worry as Fiat is preparing a more powerful edition of its mini GTi that follows in the footsteps of the Grande Punto Abarth “esseese” (see here).
As you can see in the picture that was taken during the media presentation of the 500 Abarth in Turin, the sport kit will include a number of visual and mechanical enchantments, the most important being the upgraded 1.4-liter turbocharged engine that will deliver 160 Hp. As with the Grande Punto Abarth SS, the “esseesse” kit will be available either as an option at the time of sale, or it can be retrofitted up to 1 year after purchase, or up to 20,000 km on the road.
