Abarth 500 Corsa Stradale Concept by Zender

Article by Christian A., on September 29, 2013

German tuner Zender marks its return to the industry with a comprehensive kit for the Fiat 500 Abarth that it presented at the recently held Frankfurt Motor Show. Zender had gone bust in 2008 but now with the debut of the Abarth 500 Corsa Stradale at the IAA, it announces that it’s truly back. Zender presented the Corsa Stradale in concept form.

It features a highly aggressive body kit and is fitted with a set of 18-inch alloys covered in Pirelli P Zero Black performance tires that measure 215/35 ZR 18. The package also includes a lowered adjustable sports suspension and a customized interior cabin with stainless steel pedals, illuminated door sill strips and custom sport seats.

In the engine department, Zender gave the 4-cylinder 1.6-liter turbocharged engine a boost of 76 bhp (57 kW) over the regular Abarth 500 so it now delivers 236 bhp (176 kW) and 247 lb-ft (335 Nm) of torque. Zender achieved this output by installing a larger turbocharger, modifying the fuel injection with a bigger fuel pressure regulator, as well as by updating the engine management.

The other modifications include revised camshafts and pistons together with a stainless steel exhaust that made the vehicle accelerate faster by 0.7s to 6.5s when sprinting from zero to 62 mph (0-100 km/h). With this kit, the Abarth can reach a top speed of 144 mph (232 km/h).
