How often do you have the chance to see a tuning kit for an already tuned car? Not that often right? Well, we guess it was about that time because G-Tech has unveiled a performance package for the Abarth 500.
While in its standard version, the Abarth 500 gets a 1.4 16v Turbo petrol engine that delivers a maximum of 135 HP at 5,000 rpm and a peak torque of 206 Nm at 3.000 rpm. G-Tech has increased the engine’s power to an impressive 207 HP and 310 Nm (229 lb-ft) of torque by adding Garrett loaders, larger injectors, new spark plugs, and a cat back exhaust system. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 second and a top speed limited to 140 mph.
Next to the engine upgrade the tuner is also offering a coilover suspension, green body accents, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
What do you guys think of this? Is it an attempt to make "one better" than the previous tuner or just an innocent modification to a vehicle that had just happened to be worked on before? You decide and hit us up with some comments.
