Novitec Abarth 500

Novitec is launching a set of sporty accessories together with an engine tuning program for the Abarth 500 which will enable it to develop 212 HP from instead of the stock 135 HP.

Starting with the exterior the Novitec Abarth 500 features custom 17-inch alloys (18-inch also available), a modified front spoiler lip made from carbon fiber and black-tined lateral turn signals plus a stainless steel sport exhaust system and a 35 mm lowered suspension.

In terms of performance the Novitec Abarth 500 has increased power from the 1.4-litre T-Jet 4-cylinder engine to 212 HP (156 kW) and 325 Nm of torque, thanks to a special turbocharger, a more efficient fresh air supply, an optimized air-cleaner box, larger injection nozzles and a special fuel pressure control.

The Novitec Abarth 500 has also received an ECU upgrade, and when accelerating from 0 to 100 Km/h the car now needs only 6.8-seconds, and is able to reach a maximum speed of 223 Km/h.

Pricing for the Novitec Abarth 500 power kit is 3,016 Euro.

Novitec press release :

Brand-new from NOVITEC:
212 HP and Sporty Accessories for the Abarth 500

Engine tuning with up to 212 hp / 156 kW and an extensive range of sporty accessories for the Abarth 500 are now available from NOVITEC, the worldwide leader in customizing the cars from Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Lancia. Stainless steel sport exhaust systems,

17- and 18-inch tire/wheel combinations and matching suspension modifications are also part of the program.

The NOVITEC engine specialists developed various performance kits for the 135 hp / 99 kW Abarth 500 which boost power in different stages between 164 hp / 121 kW to 212 hp / 156 kW. They unleash the true power of the 1.4-liter T-Jet four-cylinder engine without compromising durability.

The NOVITEC NT4-CORSE power kit costs 3,016 Euros and delivers an increase in power output of 77 hp / 57 kW. It consists of a special turbocharger, a more efficient fresh air supply, an optimized air-cleaner box with sport air-filter cartridge, the NOVITEC CORSE high performance exhaust system, larger injection nozzles and a special fuel pressure control. In addition the engine electronics is upgraded with the NOVITEC POWERJET 2 auxiliary control unit.

The NOVITEC NT4-CORSE tuning kit boosts power of the turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine to 212 hp / 156 kW. Maximum torque grows from standard 206 to 325 Nm at 3,400 rpm. Thus equipped the tuned Abarth 500 will accelerate in just 6.8 seconds from rest to 100 km/h and will reach a top speed of 223 km/h.

With or without engine tuning: the NOVITEC stainless-steel sport mufflers and high performance exhaust systems, available with one or two tailpipes in various shapes, lend the Abarth 500 a more exciting rear appearance, a more powerful engine sound and optimized performance.

NOVITEC also adds even more sporty character to the suspension of the turbocharged model: Abarth 500 customers can choose between NOVITEC sport springs, which lower the ride height by some 35 millimeters, and the height-adjustable NOVITEC sport suspension made from stainless steel. The latter includes somewhat stiffer gas-pressure shocks and gives the top-of-the-line model of the 500 range even more agile handling characteristics.

Perfectly matched to the sportier suspension settings are custom-tailored one-piece NOVITEC N10 light alloy wheels with 17- or 18-inch diameters. The 7.5Jx17 wheels can be fitted with low-profile
tires in sizes 215/40 R 17 in front and rear. The wheels are optionally available as silver polished or matte black painted versions. A NOVITEC set of wheels with tires is available starting from 1,106 Euros.

Especially extravagant requests can be fulfilled with NOVITEC N10 8Jx18 wheels and 215/35 R 18 tires which make full use of the available space in the wheel wells. The rim design with eight double spokes is available in different colors or polished versions.

The Abarth 500 will soon look even more sporty with the NOVITEC front spoiler lip made from Carbon which attaches to the underside of the standard front fascia. In addition to the more pronounced passing image the front spoiler also offers aerodynamic advantages: The refined shape reduces lift on the front axle and improves directional stability at high speeds.

Black-tinted lateral turn signals complete the sporty look of the Abarth.

Further NOVITEC tuning options for the Abarth 500 are in preparation. NOVITEC also offers an extensive customizing program for all Fiat 500 versions.
