The team at Pogea Racing released an amazing tuning package for the Fiat 500 Abarth 595 Ferrari last week. With the car performance and styling in mind, this special Fiat 500 Tributo Ferrari is much more powerful than the factory model that produces 180 hp. To increase the numbers, the tuners had to installed a new ECU, high performance stainless steel exhaust system, add a new downpipe, catalytic converter, and a custom turbocharger available in two versions for the Fiat 500. So what was the end result of this performance tuning?
Pogea Racing was able to pull 268 PS and 330 Nm of torque out of the tiny sports car. With the power to weight ratio the Fiat 500 Ferrari now carries, it could easily compete with some of the high end car models today. For extra cooling, the tuning company installed a new air intake, two smaller intercoolers for the turbo, a new fuel pressure valve, and Bosch fuel injectors to handle the increased airflow.
New brakes were necessary for the amount of power the modified Fiat now produces, so the tuners hooked up a high performance braking system to reduce the stopping distance by 1.8m. Aerodynamic improvements to the 500 Tributo Ferrari include several carbon fiber pieces, and then Pogea Racing upgraded the suspension for better handling. Interior improvements consist of new trim elements, and the tuning package for the Fiat 500 starts at 3,400 Euros.
