Scagliarini 504 Coupe Zagato Elaborata based on Fiat 500

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 2, 2011

Scagliarini Motorsports is working on its version of the FIAT 500 Coupè Zagato. The leading Abarth and FIAT 500 performance car firm in North America has committed to giving its take on the 500 Coupe by Zagato to the buyer who is believed to be a resident of the United Arab Emirates.

Scagliarini Motorsports Managing Director Michael Salvarani said that he conceptualized the idea for the Scagliarini 500 Coupè Zagato Elaborata as he was riding on his bicycle one Saturday.

Salvarani said that he discussed the scheme with a client who immediately liked it and asked when the delivery could be scheduled. Salvarani said that after 60 hours of planning, the company created something that was “steps ahead of anything imagined.” He shared that they filled the rear windows of the FIAT 500 Coupe Zagato.

It also received an Abarth 500 chassis as well as allwheel drive. He described the Scagliarini 500czè as “body, mind and spirit." Scagliarini Motorsports has dubbed its final elaboration of the 504 Coupè Zagato Elaborata (Scagliarini 504czè) as the "4" to indicate all-wheel drive. This is in reference to the FIAT 8v Elaborata by Zagato.

The company had envisioned the cagliarini 504czè even before the Centro Stile Scagliarini, the recently formed design house in Italy, was created. The company’s carbon fiber appointments that are meant for the Abarth 500 will be used on the Scagliarini 504czè too.

The base Abarth 500 also received the following upgrades: Abarth 500 EsseEsse parts, Abarth front seats in alcantara, Brembo brakes, and a Ragazzon performance exhaust. The model was commissioned by someone who bought the Scagliarini 500u, a limited edition FIAT 500 by Scagliarini Motorsports, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italian agglomeration.

Scagliarini Motorsports Accepts FIAT 500 Coupè Zagato Elaborata Commission, Turns Elaboration into RallyeInspired Thoroughbred

Scagliarini Motorsports, the leading Abarth and FIAT 500 performance car company in North America, announces today the company has accepted the commission to build its take on the FIAT 500 Coupè Zagato.

"On my bicycle ride Saturday a larger essence for the Scagliarini 500 Coupè Zagato Elaborata became manifest," Scagliarini Motorsports Managing Director Michael Salvarani says. "I shared the epiphany with our client, and he asked how soon could the car be delivered.

"In the space of 60-hours we created an elaboration steps ahead of anything imagined," Michael Salvarani says.

"We took the FIAT 500 Coupe Zagato, filled the rear windows, introduced an Abarth 500 chassis, and added allwheel drive. The Scagliarini 500czè is body, mind and spirit."

Making reference to the FIAT 8v Elaborata by Zagato, Scagliarini Motorsports calls its final elaboration the 504 Coupè Zagato Elaborata (Scagliarini 504czè), the "4" indicating all-wheel drive. The cagliarini 504czè was conceived before the creation of Centro Stile Scagliarini, the company's newly-formed design house to be located in Italy.

The Scagliarini 504czè will receive the company's just announced carbon fiber appointments, designed specifically for the Abarth 500. Other upgrades to the base Abarth 500 include Abarth 500 EsseEsse components, Abarth front seats in alcantara, Brembo brakes, and a Ragazzon performance exhaust.

The commission came from a buyer of the Scagliarini 500u, a limited edition FIAT 500 by Scagliarini Motorsports commemorating the 150 anniversary of Italian agglomeration. The client, a resident of the United Arab Emirates, asked Scagliarini Motorsports to provide its take on the 500 Coupe by Zagato.

"The day we announced the Elaborata we started receiving emails from nearly all corners of the globe," Michael Salvarani says. "As of now we are preparing a single copy of the Scagliarini 504czè, but we have an agreement in place for a limited [production] run based on demand."

Scagliarini Motorsports is planning to construct the Scagliarini 504czè in Italy, and will use an Abarth 500 already in the company's possession. The all-wheel drive system, developed for the European Cinquecento, uses FIAT Panda 4x4 components including a locking differential. The car will be finished in a amborghini Arancio, and may feature a removable top.

"With the Scagliarini 504 Coupè Zagato Elaborata we have established Scagliarini Motorsports on the world-stage proper," Managing Director Michael Salvarani says. "The Scagliarini 504 Coupè Zagato Elaborata is a tribute to Abarth co-Founder Guido Scagliarini, and we could not be more proud. Of course, our hats are off to Zagato for their design."
