Abarth 500 Track Time at Imola [Video]
On a sunny day, he enjoyed some track time in this compact hothatch on the legendary Imola racetrack.
According to him, he reached a top speed of 190km/h (115mph) in the main straight of the Italian circuit. The Abarth features some track focused features all of its own, but our protagonist took this further, with a decat exhaust with central straight pipe and stainless steel muffler, ECU remap with new turbo sensors and pierburg from the Grande Punto Abarth SS.
The little go-car also has H&R spring and front/back spacers, but the road tires don’t provide optimal grip on the track.
