Description

A rare opportunity to own one of the fastest Fiat 500’s on the market! This is a no expense spared, custom wide-body, Civic Type-R swapped, Ferrari Red Fiat. This is not your grandmother's Stelvio Pass cruiser, but rather a fire breathing dragon ready to hunt down unsuspecting Ferraris.

This rear engine 500 has been swapped with the legendary B16B Type-R Motor, dynoed at 191 Horsepower. The B16b is mated to a 5-speed Type-R transmission and redline’s around 9,000 RPM. Stopping power has been greatly increased with the addition of Abarth sport drilled front disc brakes and drilled & slotted Civic Si rear discs. An 8-gallon fuel cell has been integrated into the front trunk along with the master, brake and clutch cylinders.

The cockpit features a Sparco Steering wheel, Bride Low-Max bucket seats, a fully custom dash and a Wilwood pedal assembly. The body sits on a custom box frame chassis to support the steel wide-body conversion. Numerous air ducts have been added to assist with airflow to the motor, cockpit and brakes.

With only 786 miles since build completion, this Fiat 500 has just begun it’s second life. This is a Cars and Coffee killer that will have you grinning from ear to ear every turn of the ride home. Call today to find out why Chris Forsberg said “this little monster… was one of the funnest cars I’ve ever driven!”.
