This is a Fiat 500 modified by ZCars Ltd to the specification of a customer from Greece. The design brief was to fix his 500 in an interesting way so that it would have more useable power to enable him to drive his family around town in comfort. Whilst he was tempted to have the Suzuki Hayabusa conversion ZCars also produce he decided that he wanted to keep the rear seats. As that is where the 200bhp motorcycle would be installed that option was ruled out!
The engine is an EA81 Subaru engine (1800cc flat 4) which is quite an old engine although still widely used as an aviation engine we are told. This engine was used due to its simplicity, power and torque characteristics and not least its size and shape. This was mated to the original gearbox with clutch and drive shafts up rated. Also up-rated were the brakes with discs all around and the suspension at the front. The transverse leaf spring was removed and adjustable alloy dampers were used with coil springs. A new front subframe was fitted to allow the use of wishbone suspension arms.
Obviously as it is a water cooled engine, radiators were required. This was inserted into the front boot space (trunk) and water pipes run underneath the car. A new stainless steel Exhaust finished the conversion and new wheels and tyres were fitted as an optional extra.

Fiat 500 turbo watercooled 8 valves engine, first run on standard
It took more than 9 years, but today my engine did his first run!
Only the crankshaft and housing are original. The other parts I use where:
-Carburetor from an Alfa Romeo 75
-Pistons from Toyota Celica turbo
-Cylinder sleeves, Alfa Romeo 33
-turbo Garret 15
-Cylinder head is from Alfa Romeo boxer engine.
-Inlet and outlet manifold self-made
-Water pump Suzuki GSR 1100
-Oil pump Suzuki GSR 1000
And a lot of parts are self made.
Enjoy the movie, Chris
COME SI ELABORA UN MOTORE 500 - 126.avi
VISITATEMI AL SEGUENTE MIO SPAZIO EBAY:
Salve amici, in questo video vi mostro le varie fasi di montaggio di un motore 500R elaborato. Il video può essere utile a qualcuno. La cilindrata è stata elavata a poco più di 650 cc, la testata monocondotto elaborata con accortezza, asse a cammes racing, volano alleggerito, masse alternate e rotatorie ben equilibrate, carburatore Dell' Orto FRD 32 nuovo di pacco, accensione elettronica a scarica induttiva. Dovevo montare il coperchio punterie Abarth in alluminio,ma era un modello troppo alto e, a causa del tipo di carburatore, l' ho dovuto sostituire con uno normale. Abbiamo applicato tutti gli accorgimenti per ridurre al minimo le vibrazioni . Ne è venuto fuori un ottimo compromesso tra , fluidità ai bassi , rumorosità, affidabilità, consumi ,velocità massima, accelerazione, ripresa, tiro in salita. Come vedete, il meccanico ha lavorato solo in mia presenza, nonostante sia esperto, ha accettato suggerimenti; anche in rettifica ho rotto le scatole. Il tuning dei motori 500 è la mia passione, sono un pò pignolo, ma mi si accetta cos'ì come sono. La prova su strada la trovate in un altro video del mio account. Buona visione. firstname.lastname@example.org

American Track Truck -- Subaru Impreza WRX -- stock 2.0 liter engine -- DOMINATOR™ Tracks -- WOW!
Until now it appears Ken Block has had the only tracked Subaru in the world (seriously, try searching for another tracked Subaru). And that's no surprise when you add up the money it took to build Block's tracked car. How many people can really afford it?
Well there is an easier and more affordable way to track a Subaru now, thanks to American Track Truck. The light weight DOMINATOR™ track systems perform awesome, even on unmodified cars, even with the smallest, worn out, low horsepower engines. The car in this video is completely stock, except for the tracks and coil spring spacers. It has 196,000 miles on the little 2.0 liter engine and 5 speed transmission. Yet this car absolutely flies with DOMINATOR™ tracks! Imagine what a 2.5 liter with a few mods could do? Check out the video and contact www.AmericanTrackTruck.com for details!
