Fiat 500 Abarth gets more power thanks to Superchips

Superchips, the second best maker of amazing chips behind Burger King, has turned the attention of its super duper tuning computer to the Fiat 500 Abarth.

The UK-based chipping company has unleashed an extra 22bhp and 34lb ft from the 500 Abarth's 1.4-litre T-Jet turbo engine.
The result is a 500 Abarth with 155bhp, 186lb ft and, says Superchips, much improved throttle response and in-gear acceleration.

Unfortunately the company doesn't back up those claims with hard statistics, but we guess that the standard car's 7.9-second 0-62mph sprint has dropped below seven seconds.

And as is usually the case with a Superchips conversion, there's no drop in fuel economy, which remains at 43.4mpg.

The Abarth's Superchip costs £455 including fitting, and comes with a 12-month, 30,000-mile supplementary warranty.

So, speed and peace of mind – as delicious a combo as an XL Bacon Double Cheeseburger and King Fries.
