The new 500 R3T uses a tuned version of the turbocharged 1.4 found in the 500 Abarth that pushes out 180bhp. The 500 R3T also gains adjustable suspension, six-speed sequential transmission, a limited slip diff, upgraded Brembo brakes and a strengthened twin-plate clutch to cope with that extra power and torque.
