New sporty Fiat de­buts

Grocott's Mail - - MOTORING - STAFF RE­PORTER

Petrol­heads, Al­fisti, and all other mo­tor­ing en­thu­si­asts should get ready for an ex­cit­ing adren­a­line-filled week­end at the Fes­ti­val of Mo­tor­ing, which will be held at Kyalami Grand Prix Cir­cuit this week­end, from to­day (Fri­day 31 Au­gust) un­til Sun­day 2 Septem­ber.

Adren­a­line-junkies who pre­fer hatches that turn the hot and fun fac­tor di­alled up to 11, can look for­ward to the de­but of the new sporty, sassy, se­duc­tive, and so­cia­ble Fiat 500 S at the show. There’s al­ways some­thing spe­cial hid­ing in­side a Fiat 500 S that boasts a racein­spired spoiler, mags, Red Brake Calipers and sports steer­ing wheel.

Fur­ther en­hanc­ing its visual ap­peal is its gor­geous Ital­ian Blue me­tal­lic paint­work that means driv­ers will cer­tainly not go un­no­ticed on South Africa’s roads and park­ing lots.

Be­yond its killer looks, the Fiat 500 S sports enough power to back up its sporty looks.

Un­der the bon­net re­sides an 875 cc two-cylin­der power plant that churns out 77kw at 5 500RPM and 145Nm of torque at just 2 000RPM.

This is enough for the car to hit 100km/h in ten sec­onds and go on to achieve a top speed of 190km/h. All this, while keep­ing fuel us­age down to a mere 4.2 litres per 100km.

Fiat fans should get ready to hit the road and track in this lit­tle sports car.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Fiat Abarth 595, Sexy Spi­der 124, and Alfa Romeo Gi­u­lia QV will also be tak­ing to the track, demon­strat­ing the show stop­ping ap­peal of these in­cred­i­ble Ital­ian cars.
