novitec 500 1

So you have a Fiat Abarth 500, all 135 hp of it from the stock 1.4 litre T-Jet four-cylinder pot. Pacy enough, but not fast. You want quick. Well, does 212 hp sound like it’d be fast enough then?

Tuning specialist Novitec is offering just that with its NT4-Corse power kit, which boosts power output of the standard turbocharged block to 212 hp and upping the torque from 206 Nm to 325 Nm at 3,400 rpm, in the process offering the souped-up 500 a 6.8 seconds 0-100 kph sprint time as well as a 223 kph top speed.

The NT4-Corse kit (which goes for 3,016 euros) consists of a special turbocharger, a more efficient fresh air supply, an optimised air-cleaner box with sport air-filter cartridge as well as a Novitec Corse high performance exhaust system, larger injection nozzles and a special fuel pressure control. Additionally, the engine electronics are upgraded with the Novitec Powerjet 2 auxiliary control unit.

That’s not all you can do with the 500. A host of other items are available, starting with an upgraded suspension – take your pick from Novitec sport springs, which lower the ride height by some 35 millimeters, or a height-adjustable sport suspension made from stainless steel, which includes stiffer gas-pressure shocks.

There are wheels as well – custom-tailored one-piece Novitec N10 light alloy wheels in 17- or 18-inch diameters, and the eight double-spoke design wheel is available in silver polished or matte black painted versions.

Also in the mix is a Novitec front spoiler lip made of carbon-fibre, which attaches to the underside of the standard front fascia, and black-tinted lateral turn signals.
