Never thought I would hear 300 HP & Fiat 500 in the same sentence but it's going to become a reality. A 300 HP Abarth Fiat 500 is in the works! Can't wait to see how this one will turn out.


from car scoop....


Once upon a time, not too long ago, 300-horsepower was considered sports car territory. For example, in 1989, the BMW 850i Coupe came with a 300HP V12 under its long hood while the Ferrari 348's V8 also churned out 300HP. Heck, up until 2009, the Ford Mustang GT was powered by a 300HP V8.
Nowadays, 300HP has become something like Five Dollar Foot-long subs with even the smallest of cars like the Fiat 500 reaching the magic output number with a little help from the tuning industry.

After the recent debut of its 260HP Fiat 500 Abarth Monza Special Edition, Italian tuning firm Romeo Ferrari is lifting the performance bar once again with the announcement of a street-legal replica of its 500 Abarth racing model (pictured above).

To be introduced this weekend, the as-of-yet unnamed replica will get a de-tuned version of the race car's highly-modified 360HP 1.4-liter turbocharged four-pot, delivering 300 ponies. More details are to be released after the official presentation.
