Abarth 500 by Pogea Racing revealed with 331 HP and 71 kg weight loss

Pogea Racing has prepared a massive upgrade program for the tiny yet punchy Abarth 500.

One of the craziest tuning jobs for the Fiat 500, the Pogea Racing program comes with a massive 71 kg (156 lbs) weight loss thanks to an extensive use of carbon fiber while the rear seats were removed. Even more amazing is the 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine’s output which has risen to an incredible 331 HP (244 kW) at 5,750 rpm and 411 Nm (303 lb-ft) of torque at 3,450 rpm. Thanks to the more power less weight combo, the Abarth 500 by Pogea Racing will need just 5.1 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run and will top out at 163 mph (262 km/h).

The tuner has also installed KW sport shock absorbers and six-piston front aluminum calipers with 313mm perforated discs while at the back there are Esseesse-derived perforated discs. The heavily modified Abarth 500 sits on large 17-inch OZ Racing SUPERTURISMO GT alloys shod in 205/40/17 TOYO Proxes T1-R tires.

As you can see, the body has also gone through some changes since it now has a new front spoiler and splitter, vented hood, rear diffuser and a redesigned rear bumper. All that extra power was possible thanks to a larger intercooler, an additional fuel pump, custom injectors & forged pistons, along with an upgraded turbocharger and bigger intake & exhaust ducts.

All these upgrades are available for €12,500 while a complete vehicle will set you back a cool €43,500.
