1971 FIAT 500 Abarth Hatchback
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Perfect opportunity to own a ready-to-go, instant entry to SEMA machine. This little car can get any company, social media or individual noticed! FAST.
This is quite possibly one of the fastest Fiat 500's on the market. This is a no expense spared, custom wide-body, Civic Type-R swapped, Ferrari Red Fiat.
This rear engine 500 has been swapped with the legendary B16B Type-R Motor, dyno-tuned at 191 Horsepower via HONDATA ecu, this 9,000 RPM B16B is mated to a 5-speed Type-R LIMITED SLIP transmission!
Stopping power has been greatly increased with the addition of Abarth sport drilled front disc brakes and drilled & slotted Civic Si rear discs and calipers. An 8-gallon fuel cell has been integrated into the front trunk along with the master, brake, and clutch cylinders.
The cockpit features a Sparco Steering wheel, Bride Low-Max bucket seats, a fully custom dash, and a Wilwood pedal assembly. The body sits on a custom box frame chassis to support the steel (not fiberglass!) wide-body conversion. Numerous air ducts have been added to assist with airflow to the motor, cockpit, and brakes.
With only 786 miles since build completion, this Fiat 500 has just begun its second life. This is a Cars and Coffee show stopper that'll have you grinning from ear to ear every turn of the ride home. Call today to find out why Chris Forsberg said “this little monster… was one of the funniest cars I've ever driven!”.
The cost of recreating something to this specification/customization would run you in excess of 100,000usd and take years to complete!
