Hamann tunes the Fiat 500

22 September 2009 - Tuning specialist Hamann-Motorsport introduces a sportive accessory programme for the Fiat 500. The Laupheim-based technicians left their long-established grounds and indulged in refining the trendy 500.

A true eye-catcher is the re-designed front skirt with integrated LED-lights. Special wing extensions are added at the front and the back. They broaden the car body by 30 millimetres at the front- and 35 millimetres at the back.

And also the newly designed rear is remarkable: four exhaust end pipes and a diffuser which resembles the Ferrari element leave an extraordinary mark at the rear. They produce an optimised air duct across the car silhouette and therefore render additional downforce.

Matching the new look, Hamann-Motorsport offers the design wheel "Largo Forged Anodized". The matt black anodised, one-part rim is available in 8.0 x 18 for the front- and 9.0 x 18 for the rear axle. In addition, Hamann offers matching tyres measuring 215/35 ZR18 or 225/35 ZR18. Due to its light weight the unsprung mass of the car is reduced. This leads to a better handling and more agility. Another enhancement for handling the car is the Hamann-coilover suspension which lowers the car´s centre of gravity by up to 60 mm.

A specifically developed sport exhaust system gives the 500 a powerful sound. The system includes an end muffler with four round stainless steel pipes, a pre-muffler with a metal catalythic converter and a sport manifold. All components can also be ordered separately.

The Hamann-technicians developed a performance kit especially for the Fiat 500 Abarth. The engine output increase to 265 hp at 5,630 r.p.m. The maximum torque rises to enormous 348 Nm at 4,200 r.p.m

Hamann also developed a sport brake system for the Fiat 500. The set consist of two perforated and internally ventilated brake discs (diameter 280 x 28mm) at the front axle in combination with red 4-piston brake callipers and steel-covered brake tubes. The back axle can optionally be equipped with discs measuring 257 mm in diameter.

An aluminium pedal set including foot rests and a door mat set with embroidered Hamann sportive logo leave dynamic highlights in the interior and complete the Fiat 500 programme.
