Good news, U.S. residents with an undying love for Italian automobile. The iconic Fiat 124, first brought to the stateside some thirty years ago, is making a comeback, but it is of course, updated to meet the demands and tastes of today’s discerning consumers.

Lazzarini Design Wants to Stuff a Ferrari V8 Engine into a Fiat 500

Fiat range topping Fiat 500 Abarth growling 160 horsepower may rein supreme among the 500s, but not for long cos’ Italian design studio, Lazzarini Design, is apparently working to transplant a 4.5L Ferrari V8 engine, as found on the 458, into a Fiat 500, which will be humbly known as Fiat 550 Italia. You heard it right, a super compact with possibly 500+ horsepower and nearly 400 lb-ft behind it, which sounds like awesome and pretty crazy at the same time. Given the lightweight nature of the 500, we are going assume this 550 Italia should be able to rocket from zero to 60 in less than 3.3 seconds. Logically, it could be faster since we read that it (the 550 Italia) will have a carbon fiber body, which should see it shedding some serious pounds.

Fiat 500X Crossover Hits U.S. Market in Q2, Priced at $20,000 and Up

We don’t know how we managed to miss the first compact crossover from Fiat when it was announced at last year Paris Motor Show, but anyways, as a consolation, we weren’t too late after all, cos’ the 2016 Fiat 500X Crossover is set to go on sale Stateside in second quarter of 2015. As far as U.S. consumers are concern, it will be configurable and carries with it a sticker starting at $20,000. We wouldn’t say the 500X is a beast, but it certainly looks like a 500 on steroid. Aesthetically, it is all pumped. Broader, taller and generally more muscular than the usual Fiat offerings. U.S. customers will get two engine variants: a 1.4L MultiAir Turbo with 160 hp and 184 lb-ft on the tap, mated to a six-speed manual transmission and a 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir2 unit, pumping out 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque.

2014 Fiat 500 “1957 Edition”

though we appreciate rides of the yesteryear like the 1957 “Nuova” Cinquecento, we can’t imagine ourselves driving one around, simply because of one reason: safety standards, but there are also the performance issues to deal with, as well as the environment impact old cars could have. with the 2014 Fiat 500 “1957 Edition”, you will get to experience the storied past of the Fiat 500, but less the said concerns. the “1957 Edition” is basically a remake of the Italian automaker’s 1957 ride and features exterior and interior design elements that pays homage the historic Fiat “Nuova” 500. such elements include 16-inch 1957-era wheel design with body color accent, Bianco-painted roof, and vintage “FIAT” emblems.

2014 Fiat 500c GQ Edition

unless it is an Abarth, the 500 or 500c is a little too cutesy to be a manly ride and generally, “cute” things tend to a girl thing. true story. however, that perception might change for some if the 500c in question is a collaborative effort between the Italian marque and premier GQ magazine, a Condé Nast Media Group publication. naturally, we don’t expect anything fancy under the hood; as with most collab we have seen, the “mods” introduced to the 2014 Fiat 500c GQ Edition are merely cosmetic, but functional no less. powering this man-up ride is the track-proven 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine that pumps out 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque, and is mated to a 5-speed stick shift, enabling a naught to 60 mph time in “low 7-second.” of course, those figures, though important to all man, are not the highlight of this limited production cabriolet.
