SEMA Preshow: 2010 Fiat 500 Tuned by the American Way
The fine tuners from the Mopar Underground team had got their talent together again and prepared, salt’n'pepper included, a special tuned edition of the Fiat 500 2010. The special Fiat 500 concept will be launched officially at SEMA 2010 that takes place next month.
The special Fiat 500 model designed by the Chrysler‘s tuning team is based on the European version of the little Fiat, featuring a two-tone paint-job, but also a wider bodykit. We really dig the race-inspired flared wheel arches, new front and rear bumpers, as well as the side skirts that complete the track-oriented look of the SEMA concept Fiat 500 2010.
The vehicle rides on large 18-inch Alcoa wheels shod in Pirelli tires and the car’s aggressive stance is further enhanced with the lower ride height.
There are no images of the Mopar tuned Fiat 500 available yet, but some goodies are said to wait inside, such as red seat and red door insert on the driver’s side, and a modern look featuring piano-black accents on the instrument panel.
In the performance division, Mopar fitted the Italian city car with a custom exhaust system that increases the four-cylinder engine’s output and a Mopar strut tower brace that is claimed to reduce body flex in the front end and improve and handling.
The U.S.-spec 2011 Fiat 500 will be available for order before the end of the year in the Sport, Pop and Lounge models, followed by the 500C (cabrio) in the spring of 2011.
Visit the Mopar Website until the launch of the special Fiat 2010 500 get’s closer and we have more material, pre or during the SEMA 2010 show.
