    I'm sure there is an 'App' somewhere that allows you to pick a car, any car and then Abarths it with white paint and a red stripe.

    Having recently bid farewell to my Panda 100HP in favour of my A500, dare I suggest that I like it?  :whistle:

    Any one off job would be expensive from a dealership pout of view, but I'm sure an engineering company could work it out and do it cheaper....

    Are you sure,  the turbo has more power and certainly more torque?

    i think so the 100hp is a 1.4 16v

    some of the guts of the engine might be differnt but the mounts might be the same

    Dan I think you missed my point, the engine mounts may be in the same locations, but would have to be significantly beefed up for the turbo engine. Have you seen the engine movement when our cars are on a dyno?

    o i see what you mean

    at least it would be easyer to make stronger mount of the same sizes than have to mesure for new ones and most things should line up like the drive shafts and stuff :thumb:

    I've found the reference to the Panda Abarth in Auto Italia,

    in issue 134 from July 2007 the editorial talks abouth the rebirth of Abarth with Panda 100 and 120SS plus the 500 and Punto that we know all about. Later in the magazine there's an interview with Claudio Berro which focuses on the motosport side of things and mentions the 500 and Punto roadcars but not the Panda.

    So a very brief mention of the Panda but it lodged in my brain, pity the 120SS never happened :thumbd:
