Fiat 500 Abarth DA 0 A 100 Limited Edition

Italian carmaker Fiat has developed a Limited Edition of their Abarth 500, also known as the DA 0 A 100 and according to the specialists only 101 units will be built. Everyone has heard of the Abarth and this model is a clear reference to the passion of the founder, starting from the specific silencer and variable counter-pressure exhaust system, harking back to one of the products that made the Abarth name famous worldwide. The moldings on the side pillars are a tribute to the best known customizations and the hide color leather upholstery with silver embroidery on the new special series also recalls Abarth cars of the past. This model in particular receives power from a 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet engine capable of generating 160 BHP and 230 Nm of torque which enables the car to reach a top speed of 211 km/h and to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds. To handle the power, the engineers have provided perforated disk brakes front and rear, high performance front brake pads, a special air filter and special low springs. To send the power to the road, the model got 17-inch alloy wheels covered in Pirelli Pzero Nero tires that measure 205 / 40 R16 ZR 17. All these features make the new DA 0 A 100, unique. For the exterior, the model got special exhaust pipe with variable counter-pressure. The model stands out for its Nuvolari Grey bodywork, which is made even sportier by the Abarth stripe on the sides. For the inside, it got leather seats with hide color seat and silver stitching. The same DA 0 A 100 branding can be found on the fuel tank cover, the ignition key fob and the car cover. In terms of exclusive styling standard equipment, the engineers have offered 7 airbags, fog lights, ABS complete with EBD system, ESP with ASR and a Hill Holder, but also a new Torque Transfer Control. All these were offered for improved safety. The list continues with a whole list of other new elements and the equipment is completed by electric front windows and wing mirrors and also height-adjustable steering wheel and seats.
