It’s a chrome-wrapped Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari by Office-K.

The car is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine tuned to 180 hp to do 0 to 100 km/h in under 7 seconds. The Tributo i a very special car and a very limited edition model.

This treatment though, renders it worthless. Chrome wrap is not cool, it is very very ghastly.

Super chips got hold of a Fiat 500 Abarth and thought there is more to get from that 1.4-litre turbocharged engine just by fiddling with electronics.

So they got their ICs and stuff out and got busy remapping the car’s ECU.

Extensive dyno testing by Superchips proves that its new ECU remap for the Abarth 500 raises power by a maximum of 22 bhp at 5654 rpm, with gains from the 1368cc FIRE turbocharged engine from just 2000 rpm all the way to the 6500 rpm cut out. This highlights the linear, progressive nature of the Superchips upgrade as its Abarth 500 ECU remap places great emphasis on delivering a driveable, user friendly performance.

Suitable for all Abarth 500 models produced from February 2009 onwards, the Superchips ECU remap is priced at £455.00

The car weighs no more than 100 kg, so with power to weight ratio of a sportscar it can hit 250 km/h top speed.

Fiat 500 Abarth is already tuned by Fiat’s old partner, but the most powerful version gets only 180 hp. And that’s a bit shabby to be honest.

Do not despair though, because the German tuner Cartech has come up with a tuning program for the little car that offers 240 PS, and a 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and laps the Hockenheim Ring in the same time as say a Porsche 911.

The car’s turbocharged four-cylinder engine gets with larger turbochargers, improved intercooler and optimized air intakes, plus a titanium steel exhaust system.

Modified suspension, a full aero kit with front spoiler lip, side sills, rear wing and rear diffuser as well as two big exhausts pipes are other parts of the package.

For the 25th anniversary of the company, the prestigious Italian tuner Romeo Ferraris released a very special version of the Abarth 500C.

This unique birthday gift from Romeo to himself features a magnificent two tone paint job that is a combination of metallic red and chrome effect foil. It creates a swell look for the little Fiat 500C.

What’s more the car gets 17-inch multi spoke wheels and a red dashboard and black leather upholstery featuring diamond cut patterns and contrasting stitching.

And to top it all off, the tuner also tweaks the Abarth engine, from 140 to 203 hp by using stuff like better air filters, exhausts, and turbocharger. This car of course won’t be cheap, but in many ways it is the ultimate version of Fiat 500.
