First details were revealed during a media presentation for the 500 Abarth where an image of the new kit and a November date were displayed, reports Auto Motor and Sport. Some of the modifications will include uprated brakes, a revised front bumper, lightweight alloy wheels wrapped with Pirelli Pzero tires and an adjustable lowering kit that sees the car drop up to 20mm.
This will actually be the second Essesse-Essesse model. The first officially tuned model will be the Abarth Grande Punto, which gets a 180hp version of Fiat’s 1.4L T-Jet petrol engine. To bump power up from the standard car’s 155hp, engineers added a new Garrett turbocharger, a sports air-filter and a new electronic control engine module.
