Official: America's Scagliarini Motorsports presents its Fiat 500 Coup� Zagato Elaborata
The Fiat 500 is just beginning to pop up on roads all over the country. It's available in hardtop and cabriolet forms, and the hotted-up Abarth version is just around the corner. Some can't wait to modify the car, and Boulder, Colorado-based Scagliarini Motorsports is ready to offer a slew of aftermarket accessories. Scagliarini is so into the new 500, it's decided to build a special version of its own, and the name is larger than the car itself.
Called the Scagliarini Motorsports Fiat 500 Coupe Zagato Elaborata (try fitting that script on the hatch!), this modified Italian started life as an Abarth before gaining filled-in rear windows and an all-wheel drive powertrain. Carbon fiber accents are placed inside along the Alcantara-covered front seats. Behind the wheels sit Brembo brakes, while Abarth EsseEsse parts add a dash of go-fast to the engine. The all-wheel drive bits were pulled from a Fiat Panda. The car will be built at Scagliani's Italian design studio, and wears searingly hot Lamborghini orange paint, otherwise known as Arancio.
