Fiat 500 Abarth and Abarth esseesse by Hamann

The Fiat 500 Abarth and Abarth Esseesse received a performance kit from aftermarket specialists from HAMANN. The specialists provide the Fiat 500 with more power with five performance enhancements. The smallest upgrade boosts the little scooter up to 160 horsepower by applying some well-directed changes in the engine electronics. The torque rises from 206 to strong 285 Nm of torque. The next upgrade, the HS II pushes the Abarth to 180 horsepower and 295 Nm of torque. The HAMANN technicians even go one step further with the performance kit HS III which boosts power to 210 horses and 310 Nm of torque. For the power setting HS RACE for example, HAMANN uses forged pistons, enhanced connection rods, a modified turbo charger with charge air cooler, a race clutch with weight-optimized one-mass flywheel and a new control electronic. Altogether, this renders 240 horsepower and 330 Nm of torque. Last, but not least, there is the HS CINQUECENTO 575 which leads to an impressive 275 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque. New aerodynamics components made of light composite materials are produced for the modified design language of the trendy Italian. Its best feature is the re-engineered front skirt with integrated LED daytime running lights. Special wing extensions are fitted at the front and the back. All HAMANN components do not only convince with their look, but also with their aerodynamics. They enable an optimized airflow over the silhouette of the vehicle and render additional down-thrust. The sport suspensions ensure a better handling and so does the newly developed design wheel LARGO FORGED ANIDIZED which perfectly matches the new sporty look. The tuner offers an alternative to the LARGO program for the Fiat 500. An aluminum pedal set including foot rest and a floor mat set with embroidered HAMANN logo accentuate the focus of the dynamic interior.
