THE Abarth 500 has gone power crazy! With its snarling 133bhp 1.4-litre turbo engine, the tuned Baby already has quite a reputation.

Buyers can take power to 158bhp with Abarthís Esseesse upgrade Ė but for German tuner Karl Schnorr Kraftfahrzeuge, thatís still not enough.

It has added a bigger turbo, a sports exhaust and remapped the ECU to give an incredible 198bhp.

Visual upgrades include the red 17-inch alloys you see here, as well as lowered suspension for improved handling.

But the power output isnít the only figure thatís risen Ė so has the price.

To turn your Abarth 500 into a Karl Schnorr firebreather will set you back nearly £4,500 on top of the £13,605 list price.

An amazing looking car, if you can find a Fiat garage that will sell one and fix it when it goes wrong.

bit expensive over 15k for a 1400 turbo. I was looking into the 1400 100bhp sport and that was coming in at around 12.5k with the few extras I wanted. The new RX8 is available now for just 18k as well, so competition is good.Will be a fun car when they hit the used car market though. Few year I can see them really depreciating once the rarity has disappeared.

Marangoni has one with nearly 240bhp, and alfa will release a GTA mito with about 240 bhp aswell. seems like a half decent engine to me. Although your right Johnny, why buy a trend car when you can have proper wheel drive and 9000rpm.

A really nice looking car ... but buy the original if you don't like flat, dull, farty driving.
