Abarth 500C at Lipscomb
Meet the Abarth 500C at Lipscomb… As with the Abarth 500 hatchback, the Abarth 500C utilizes the T-jet 1.4 16v Turbo engine only this time with power increased to an impressive 140 bhp whilst still delivering that distinctive Abarth theme tune. However the cognoscenti will spot subtle refinements; the lengthened dynamic spoiler emphasises the Abarth 500C’s sporting heritage, as well as ensuring a more effective air flow distribution and precision aerodynamics minimise turbulence when driving with the hood down. With hood up, the Abarth 500C grants you the sort of performance a hard-top performance car would be proud of. Yes, we’re talking top of the class.
The Turbo T-Jet engine delivers 140 bhp and a peak torque of 206 Nm at 2000 rpm in Sport mode. This tried and tested 4-cylinder, 16 valve, 1368 cc unit (supercharged by a fixed geometry IHI RHF3-P turbocharger) is capable of powering the Abarth 500C along at a top speed 205 km/h (128 mph), with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph), in just 8.1 seconds: it’s one of the best-performing convertible/ cabriolet in its class. The 5-speed gearbox is the advanced electro-hydraulic Abarth Competizione unit with paddle-shift controls for the ultimate experience of performance driving. Better still, fuel consumption is low - just 43.5 mpg in the combined cycle – and meets with the stringent Euro5 emission standards.
The super stylish Abarth 500C oozes sportiness and innovation, all the way to twin chromed tailpipes? No problem. You also want practicality and versatility? Hey, this is Abarth - our design credentials mean we excel at making the ordinary; extraordinary. The Abarth 500C range features original bi-colour and single-colour body configurations, with a choice of Sports fabric and a variety of leather trimmed interiors plus contrasting hood and spoiler combinations. As standard the Abarth 500C comes equipped with 16” alloy wheels and 195/45 R16 84V tyres, with the option of upgrading to a choice of dramatic 17” alloys just make the Abarth 500C all the more individual.
