Fiat Aegea Abarth Makes No Sense, At Least Looks Cool

In a world where some consider the Abarth 500 the ultimate pocket-rocket for urban acoustic hooliganism, designers are envisioning Fiat sedans wearing the scorpion badge. Because, why not?

We all know this had to happen sooner or later. Someone eventually thought about rendering the recently-announced Fiat Aegea in Abarth clothing, and that someone is X-Tomi Design.

We'll break it to you from the very start: considering the Aegea is a sedan meant to rival the likes of Dacia Logan, Renault Fluence or Skoda Rapid, a performance version would simply be useless for the same reason we don't get a Fluence touched by RenaultSport's wand. But for art's sake, we can let this aspect pass and focus on the rendering.

It's impressive how much difference can be made by a flashy touch of red paint on the outer shell coupled with a set of racing-like wheels. Add the familiar Abarth stripe and blacked out roof recipe and you're in for a good looking car. Utterly useless, but attractive to some extent.

Whereas the Aegea will benefit from power outputs located in the 95-120 HP range, it would be - hypothetically speaking - interesting to see how much would Abarth be able to raise the bar. I'm thinking about a 1.4-liter mill pumped-up to produce around 180 HP.

It would indeed involve a lot of Fiat's initial fuel efficiency figures being thrown out the window, but everything has a price, right?

Well, enough daydreaming, because the most exciting feature of the Aegea would probably by the boot, foreseen to offer over 510 liters of cargo space.
