Fiat's performance division, Abarth, has just announced the
arrival of a 500C esseesse kit to sit alongside the hardtop
in the company's lineup.
The Abarth 500C is scheduled to go on display at the 2010 Paris
Motor Show, the exact venue the Abarth 500 esseesse had been
unveiled at two years previously.
The esseesse upgrade for the Abarth 500C features power increases
- without a reduction in the fuel economy, and also chassis
and styling changes.
The turbocharged 1.4 litre engine of the 500C Abarth esseesse
now develops 160hp, and a peak torque figure of 230Nm (170lb-ft).
The exhaust note has been tuned to provide an additional bit
of character once the engine passes 4,000 rpm.
The car is finished in a unique grey-on-grey paint scheme, and
is equipped with 17", white colored multi-spoke alloys.
