I was really impressed by the sound of this little race car.
This is infact the race version of the Abarth 500 and it's called Abarth
500 Assetto Corse. The turbo engine, a 4
cylinder, can produce 190 bhp and 300 Nm of torque.

Abarth 500 Driftaction im Chilltal (ohne F24 Sicherung)
Sicherung F24 raus & euer Abarth 500 wird zum Drifttool!
Wenn die Sicherung entfernt ist, geht Servo, ABS, ESP, ASR und der Tacho
nicht. Ebenso ist das Piepsen (Warnsignal) von der Handbremse verstummt -
die benötigt man ja sehr häufig beim Driften.
Aus-/ und Einbauzeit ca. 1 Minuten. Eine kleine Spitzzange ist von Vorteil,
da die Sicherung sehr klein ist und eng am Gehäuse anliegt.
Macht das nur auf gesperrte Plätze oder Strecken!
Beschreibung im Video:
Die kleine seitliche Lasche wo Unlock drauf steht (links unten), nach unten
drücken und den ganzen Deckel nach oben schieben Richtung
Windschutzscheibe. An der Rille ziehen, ober dem Dampfstrahlersymbol. Es
geht ganz leicht!
Die Sicherung F24 - dass ist die 7,5 Amper Sicherung links - die 2. von

ItaliaspeedTV - Fiat Barchetta (promotional video, 1995)
The much loved Fiat Barchetta convertible was based on the Punto Mk1
platform and entered production in 1995. Designed in-house by Fiat Centro
Stile and credited to Andreas Zapatinas, the Barchetta was initially
produced by Maggiora at Chivasso. It was a pure two seater with a full,
manually operated, canvas roof and an adequate boot. The design aimed to
hark back to the small open-topped roadsters of the 50s and 60s, both in
overall shape and in some details like the exquisite chrome door handles.
Inside too, it was relatively understated, aiming to involve the driver
more rather than to place barriers between him and his enjoyment of
driving. The engine was a 1747cc, dohc 16V unit with 131 bhp and 164 Nm,
which featured variable valve timing (hydraulic on the inlet valves) for
the first time in a production Fiat car. Other noteworthy features included
a stainless steel 4-2-1 Exhaust
manifold, piston crown oil cooling jets, forged steel conrods and self
adjusting hydraulic tappets. After its launch the Barchetta received much
praise for both its handling and performance, helped by its relatively
light weight and excellent chassis rigidity for a convertible. The brakes
were assisted by the fitment of discs all round and ABS as standard.
Despite the lack of a limited slip diff, traction was also rarely a
problem, even on tight corners. No variants were produced, all models being
two door convertible 1800s, although some 'limited editions' were produced
in various markets. Only left hand drive cars were built by Fiat, although
these were also officially available in those markets where RHD is the
norm, such as the UK and Japan. A hardtop in the body colour (originally
only in black) was also available. For the year 2000 the range was
'revised' with a variety of mostly unnoticeable detailing changes. The most
visual change was the addition of a third brake light in a blister on the
bootlid. Late 2002 saw a thoroughly facelifted Barchetta was shown to the
public. Featuring new front and rear bumpers the car became visually much
more aggressive whilst under the skin little changed. Problems with
Maggiora saw the commercial launch delayed and in the end only small
numbers were built in fits and starts up to 2005.
Arbarth at 2010 Bologna Motor Show
Arbarth stand on Press Day at the 2010 Bologna Motor Show, Italy.
The most powerful cars, the most engaging music and the most dynamic young
people: these are the ingredients of the most important motoring event in
Italy which is, by tradition, the Bologna Motor Show. A kaleidoscope of
trends and new features capable of drawing thousands of visitors,
especially young people who find the answer to their expectations and
desires here. A continuously bustling context where Abarth is playing a
leading role. For this reason the brand has decided to take part in the
Bologna show with a stunning stand where major world débuts mingle with
tried and tested models to underscore - yet again - the brand's unique
position on the international motoring stage.
The Abarth 695 "Tributo Ferrari" is also in the spotlight - on display for
the first time with Modena Yellow livery - the fastest and highest
performing road-going 500 ever, arising out of joint venture between Abarth
and Ferrari, based on shared values that include a passion for performance,
a racing soul, attention to detail and Italian style. This numbered and
limited special series has been marketed since July and has already notched
up more than 600 orders; more than half of which are from countries such as
United Kingdom, France and Germany.
There is also space for a Aci-Csai-Abarth Formula model that this year took
part in a championship reserved for this single-seater made by Tatuus on a
carbon fibre body, an FTP Racing 1.4 Fire turbo engine developing 180 HP based on the engine
used in the Abarth 500 Trophy and Sadev transmission with a sequential
six-speed gearbox. This Aci Csai and Abarth single seater trainer is
destined to hone the skills of talented young drivers until 2014, serving
as their career launch pad towards the higher formulas. It is the heir to
the Formula Azzurra category that introduced the Csai "Young Drivers
Project" in 2005. In this sector too, Abarth boasts a long tradition,
dating back to the 1970s and 1980s, with the Italia and Fiat Abarth
formulas that made it possible for drivers of the calibre of Michele
Alboreto, Riccardo Patrese and Alessandro Nannini to make their names.
Bolstered by the success of the recent conversion kits (one Abarth 500 out
of three is converted using the official kit), Abarth presented the new
"esseesse" kits for the Abarth 500C and Abarth Punto Evo at the Bologna
Motor Show. These are designed to improve their performance, handling and
safety without having to renounce the car's low emission and fuel
consumption level. At the stand the public can admire a Punto Evo
"esseesse" and an Abarth 500C "esseesse" that perfectly illustrate the
spirit of Abarth tuning, encapsulating practical elements and unassuming
good looks: in accordance with brand tradition and market requirements,
Abarth cars are a mix of sporty yet elegant looks and safe driving
experience yet always with sporty performance levels.
The Punto Evo "esseesse" is in fact capable of 180 HP with truly thrilling
performance levels: maximum torque of 270 Nm at 3000 rpm in sport mode, top
speed of 216 km/h and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds. On
the other hand, the "esseesse" kit for the 500C turns the Scorpion-branded
convertible into a genuine open-topped sports car: 160 HP, maximum torque
of 230 Nm in sport mode, top speed of 209 km/h and acceleration from 0-100
km/h in just 7.6 seconds.
The Abarth Punto Evo "esseesse" is exhibited with a Campovolo Grey body,
named after the airport, still operational today, that is located opposite
the company's historic headquarters in Corso Marche, Turin. This was where
the young Karl Abarth used to buy paint for his cars, the very same
Campovolo grey shade used for aircraft. In detail, the Abarth Punto Evo on
show combines this particular colour with an Abarth band in the body shade
and 18'' alloys in a special white "esseesse" design. Inside, the car
features "Abarth Corse by Sabelt" seats in black leather with a distinctly
sporty design and an Abarth Blue&MeTM MAP satellite navigation system
complete with telemetrics developed with Magneti Marelli.
2015 Abarth 695 Biposto Start Up, Test Drive and In Depth Review @ Dunsfold Aerodrome

economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
