207bhp Abarth 500, Thanks To G-Tech

In standard form the Abarth 500 dishes out 135bhp from its turbocharged 1.4-litre engine, but with a bit of work from the engineers at G-Tech the little Abarth is now capable of 207bhp.

G-Tech Abarth 500

G-Tech are calling this the RS-S, and the complete package includes Garrett loaders, larger fuel injectors, new spark plugs and a modified cat back exhaust system.

As well as the increase in power there’s also more torque, up to 310Nm. With all of that extra grunt the 0-62 mph sprint is covered in just 6.9 seconds, while top speed is increased to 141mph – although the top speed is electronically limited ‘due to safety reasons’.

G-Tech are also offering a new coilover suspension setup, as well as the green body highlights and 17-inch alloys. The car pictured would set you back over £24k, but you can take your own Abarth 500 and pick and choose from the range of upgrades.
