Tuner unleashes 225kW Fiat 500


The Fiat 500 might be considered one of the better modern retro creations and even though it has a 99kW Abarth flagship that rates high on the fun scale, the 500 is still more likely to be called a boutique hatch than a serious performance machine.

However, European tuner RF (Romeo Ferraris) plans to shatter your perceptions with its Cinquone Stradale, a street-legal variation of the Fiat 500 race car that it already produces.

Highly modified 1.4 turbo makes 225kW.

Although full details have yet to be divulged, RF has disclosed that the Conquone Stradale is powered by a highly modified version of Fiat's 1.4-litre turbopetrol engine, shoving out 225kW.

Not to be mistaken for any other 500, the modified car is set apart by monstrous alloy wheels as well as a wide-body aero kit and bold rear diffuser.

Inside they've turfed out the back seats and installed a roll cage and two racing bucket seats, while carbonfibre trim and a mix of alcantara and leather ensures a racy ambience.
