SR Auto Group Project Scorpione
The Fiat 500 Abarth packs a surprisingly huge punch in such a small package. It’s seriously a mean little bugger. But some people have a limitless craving for power, performance, and physical beauty. Many automotive groups have decided to take things to the next level by upgrading the already formidable compact coupe, and SR Auto Group’s Project Scorpione is one of the front runners.
Project Scorpione – Mission to Become the Best
SR Auto Group took on the challenge of transforming the Fiat 500 Abarth into a whole new beast. Using premium parts from premier manufacturers, including Germany’s Novitec and Italy’s own Magneti Marelli, a stock Abarth received a major overhaul in several main areas.

The black and brushed silver Euro-style racing wheels create a gorgeous contrast with the rest of the exterior. Last but not least, a custom Xenon HID headlight system by Alumina gives the car an intimidating glow in the night. But the alluring visuals don’t stop there.
