Default Rally Prepped Abarth 500 R3T Revealed in Sanremo








Quote:
Fiat-owned racing tuner Abarth has introduced a new, race-ready version of the Abarth 500. Based on the new Fiat 500, the Abarth 500 R3T will be used as the principal car in a promotional rally slated for 2010.Group R3T is the class for touring car racing with vehicles using turbocharged engines under 1.6-liters. Translation: do not expect this car to be street legal. Minimum unladen weight for these vehicles is fixed at 1080 kilograms, which engineers accomplished.

This version of the Abarth 500 uses a “Garret GT 1446 fixed geometry turbocharger” bolted to a 1.4-liter engine. The two combine for a maximum output of 180 horsepower. Mated to the engine is a six-speed sequential gearbox with a twin plate clutch and self-locking differential. The new suspension may be adjusted to fit “each driver’s individual driving style.”
17-inch multi-spoke OZ rims were also added. Brembo disc brakes have also installed, with ventilated discs up front. Six-point safety belts and a welded roll-bar help keep driver and navigator safe.

A schedule for the Abarth 500 R3T rally will be released in the next few weeks.

Press Release:
Abarth 500 for rallies launched in Sanremo
Abarth introduced its latest racing gem at the 51st Sanremo Rally. The new Abarth 500 R3T will lend its name to a promotional rally trophy in 2010, due to join the two track events (European and Italian) planned for the Abarth 500 Assetto Corse.

For Abarth, this marks a return to promotional trophy events, a niche it has made its own for more than thirty years. Since 1977, to be precise, when the first ever Autobianchi A112 Abarth Championship was held, followed by trophies for the Fiat Uno, Uno Turbo, Cinquecento, Seicento, Punto Kit and Super 1600, Stilo, Panda Kit.

The Abarth 500 rally version will be type approved for Group R3T, the category for turbocharged cars up to 1600 cm3 in capacity. This class will be the future of the specialism because it represents a good compromise between car cost and performance. Ideal for private drivers and young people who want to show their worth in a true racing car, capable of outstanding performance by any standard.

The Abarth 500 power unit is 1368 cm3 with a Garret GT 1446 fixed geometry turbocharger capable of delivering a power of 180 hp (132 kw) at 5500 rpm.

The gearbox is sequential, front meshing with 6 speeds and includes a multiplate self-locking differential, twin plate clutch and special half-axles.

Great care has been taken to ensure the suspension can be adjusted to obtain a ride suited to each driver’s individual driving style. The racing shock-absorbers are adjustable, with coaxial spring and wheel to alter the ground clearance plus special shims to adjust the caster and camber angles.

The 7″ x 17″ OZ asphalt rims are designed for 19/62-17 tyres.

The Brembo brakes are all disc, ventilated at the front with 4 callipers, solid disc at the rear with brake distributor and governor. The handbrake is hydraulic.

The Abarth 500 is equipped with a special welded roll-bar integral with the body, the required safety devices and FIA type-approved seats with 6 seat belt anchorage points.

The weight is the lowest set by the regulations for this category: 1080 kg unladen.

Great care has also been taken over the details, beginning with a livery that is most decidedly in keeping with tradition, complemented by a lovingly crafted interior and instruments.
The Abarth promotional trophy regulation and timetable will be circulated in the coming weeks.

Don't understand the fascination with this car or its variants. Does absolutely nothing for me, infact i think its pretty darn ugly looking. To each their own I suppose.

I'd stab my grandmother in the throat with a rusty screwdriver for one of these.

A shame Abarth has had such rotten luck in the IRC this year; didn't even win their home event this weekend.

R3T is pretty much dominated by Peugeot 207s at the moment. About the same size as the 207 S2000s but a lot more road-relevant.

I'd poke her in the gums with a screwdriver, at the very least.

I just sat in a Fiat 500 last week - it's an incredibly comfortable car. The Alfa Romeo MiTo was better, though... they need to bring that bad bitch over here right now, dammit.

Default HardCore Abarth 500 Racer

Quote:
Italian racing team Romeo Ferraris has shown off the most extreme version of the Fiat 500 Abarth yet.
The Romeo Ferraris 500 keeps the base car’s 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but it has been tuned to produce more than 355bhp

The competition model also has a carbonfibre body, which helps give it a weight of 970kg. It rides on 17-inch OZ alloys with special racing Dunlop tyres.
The car will compete in this weekend’s 6 Hours of Vallelunga race in Italy and will be driven by Michela Cerruti and Mario Ferraris.
Fiat produces its own 500 Abarth racer, which produces 190bhp from the same 1.4-litre engine. It also has a weight of 970kg, and you can see it on video here.
