California-based Road Race Motorsports has introduced a heavily upgraded Fiat 500 Abarth.

This is without any doubt the most extreme Fiat 500 ever since it comes with no less than 250 bhp (186 kW) and 250 lb-ft (339 Nm) of torque from the same 4-cylinder, 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine. Developed by Road Race Motorsports, the 500 "M1 Turbo Tallini Competizione" is 54 kg (119 lbs) lighter than the stock 500 through the extensive use of carbon fiber and a stripped out interior cabin.

It's still a front-wheel drive, road-legal car and needs a little over six seconds to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run while the beefier brakes stop the vehicle approximately 20 percent faster than those fitted onto the regular Fiat 500 Abarth.

These goodies come at a steep price as Road Race Motorsports is asking 60,000 GBP (101,200 USD / 75,700 EUR) for the full upgrade kit which is limited to 50 units. Lesser packages are also available and kick off from 10,000 GBP (16,800 USD / 12,600 EUR).

It's still not the fastest Fiat 500 Abarth out there as the road-legal Biposto shown in Geneva earlier this year can cover the 0-62 mph sprint in 5.9 seconds before hitting a top speed of 143 mph (230 km/h), despite offering "only" 190 bhp (142 kW).

Be part of something big

250 bhp Fiat 500 by Road Race Motorsports is a true pocket rocket
