265 HP Hamann Largo based on Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 received a tuning package from aftermarket specialists HAMANN-Motorsport. The engineers did not have to venture uncharted grounds, as the company has been specialized in such sporty modifications for many years already. The tuners have designed new aerodynamics components made of light composite materials. Perfectly manufactured extensions seamlessly fit into the car body design and give the Largo a masculine appearance. It goes without saying that all HAMANN-Motorsport components do not only convince with their look, but also with their aerodynamic characteristics. They produce an optimized air duct across the car silhouette and therefore render additional down-force. The weight of the car was reduced and this lead to a better handling and more agility. Another enhancement for handling the car is the HAMANN-Motorsport coilover suspension which lowers the center of gravity of the car by up to 60 mm. a specially developed sport exhaust system turns the retro scooter into a tough sports car and renders a powerful and earthly sound. All components can be ordered separately. The HAMANN-Motorsport specialists have developed a performance kit especially for the Fiat 500 Abarth. The output of the engine increases to 265 horsepower and the maximum torque rises to 348 Nm. To handle the extra power, the tuners developed a stable brake system which renders advanced deceleration values. The back axle can optionally be equipped with discs measuring 257 mm in diameter. The dynamic highlights in the interior and styling are being offered by an aluminum pedal set that includes foot rest and a door mat set with embroidered HAMANN sportive logo. The HAMANN-Motorsport specialists managed to do an incredible job with the new Fiat 500 and for sure enthusiasts are very thankful for the results.
