Is there anything more fun than a sporty little hatchback? I own the modified version of the Fiat 500 by Abarth which I find extremely fun. Last year I had the opportunity to test drive the RWD Abarth 500 by Aznom-Lucarelli and it was a truly awesome car! What happend if you put a V8 engine in a little Fiat 500?
That's the project of italian company Lazzarini that is looking for an investor to help to build the Lazzarini 550, a 550.000$ Fiat 500 powered with the 4.5L V8 taken from the Ferrari 458 Italia but with 20hp less for a better grip and traction of the car (550hp are still enough to move this little car). On the exterior the company has applied a widebody making it 300mm wider in the back and 200mm in the front, the wheelbase has been increased of 300mm. Many components on the car will be taken from Ferrari such as the radiator, suspensions and transmission. Sounds like the recipe for a fantastic machine, isn't it? Just hope the car will become reality one day!
