    A small sports car - Cinquecento Sporting Martini Europa Cup

    Cheers,

    I'm sending a photo of my small Fiat Cinquecento Sporting
    ''Martini Europa Cup''.The car is finally finished, after a dark period after the correct wheels ( found them in Austria and came directly from the car that finished 3rd on the 1996 European Trophy ).
    My future classic. It's not a Porsche or a Ferrari and it's probably the least expensive car ever seen in this forum, but surely one of the fastest in deep traffic



    Best Regards.

    Congrats nsmg! Small and inexpensive car can be a blast. Especially in cyties and small back roads. Plus they are light meaning easy to throw around corners.
    What engine you've got in there?

    Re: A small sports car - Cinquecento Sporting Martini Europa Cup


    Thank you for your reply.

    TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS :

    Engine : 4 cylinder 1108cc - 70hp/5500 rpm
    - Novitec carbonfibre complete airbox ( with K&N air filter )
    - Giwasa ECU
    - Supersprint Inox 4-2-1 exhaust headers

    Chassis : - Sparco front strut brace
    - H&R springs ( - 20mm )
    - Bilstein dampers
    - Cromodora Sparco Wheels duraluminium wheels ( ex-Trophy )
    - Pirelli P5000 Drago 175/50 R13 tyres

    I have a brand new 40mm throttle body waiting in the box.
    Expecting about 75 hp - not bad for 700kg.

    p.s : Used to have a complete Group N rally exhaust system.
    It was great fun to hear the car passing tunnels,
    but completly useless for highway driving...

    I'm also adding a photo of the interior :



    And a photo of the original ''Martini Europa Cup'' Gr.A car :

    Thats cool! Its fun extracting every bit of performance you can from a small light weight car with a small engine. Very satisfying.

    Re: A small sports car - Cinquecento Sporting Martini Europa Cup

    It must be a blast to drive!

    I must congratulate you on the condition of the car, it looks immaculate.

    Do you know the perf numbers such 0 to 100km/h?

    The specification are impressive for such a small car, it must provide nice and raw sensations. I'm also impressed by the components of the chassis it must handle like a dream, like go-kart.

    I must say it is an excellent choice compared to modern small cars that are too heavy and provide no sensations.

    Re: A small sports car - Cinquecento Sporting Martini Europa Cup

    Thanks for your words about the specification of my car.
    It really is immaculate ( only 34000 Km from new - bought December 1996 ) and the 0-100km/h takes about 10-11 seconds.
    The car is really fun to drive in open road with lots of corners, specially when going downhill ! And in the city traffic , more powerful cars have already been embarassed

    I'm sending a photo of the 500 Sporting on the rally field ( shown is the works car of Fiat Greece in 1996 ) :



    On the circuit - Not many people know that Fiat Germany entered a team of four 500 Sportings , that were class winners on the 1996 24 Hours of Nurburgring ( well ahead the works Mini Coopers that entered the same race ).





    I guess that the competition history is not bad for such an inexpensive small car.
