Special, one-off Fiat 500 Zagato gets 4WD, carbonfibre and a fruitier exhaust
4 August 2011

A special-edition version of the new Fiat 500 coupé Zagato will be made by American-based Scagliarini Motorsports.

The Scagliarini Fiat 504 Coupé Zagato Elaborata features an Abarth 500 chassis, 4WD (hence 504) and gets Scagliarini’s latest carbonfibre touches that have been designed specifically for the car.

Other changes to the special 500 Coupé Zagato include filled rear windows, the Abarth’s Alcantara front seats, Brembo brakes, and a Ragazzon performance exhaust.

The Scagliarini Fiat 504 is powered by the standard car’s 1.4-litre turbocharged engine, which produces 178bhp.

The construction of the new Scaliarini 504cze will take place in Italy by using an Abarth 500 already in the company’s possession, as well as the 4x4 components from an all-wheel-drive Fiat Panda.

Managing director of Scagliarini Motorsports, Michael Salvarani, said: "With the Scagliarini 504 Coupè Zagato Elaborata we have established Scagliarini Motorsports on the world-stage proper.”

The car was commissioned by the buyer of the firm’s previous car, the Scagliarini 500u, a limited edition Fiat 500 by Scagliarini Motorsports commemorating the 150 anniversary of Italian agglomeration.
