Road Race Motorsports has revealed one serious little lapping day machine at the SEMA Show, with a highly customized Fiat 500 packing plenty of race-inspired modifications. Under the hood is a B-Spec tuned engine pumping out 133-hp thanks to a Road Race intake system and sport exhaust. To be a true race car though, they also outfitted it with a timing controller, Zeitronix Data logging system with Drew Tech touchscreen and Drew Tech’s GPS and Track mapping system.

Suspension modifications are plentiful, starting with Bilstein’s coilovers and springs, Road Race/Progress rear anti-sway bar, and Road Race camber adjusters. For brakes, Road Race outfitted the Fiat with their slotted rotors and sports brake featuring different brake pads for track days.

The outside sports a Carbontrix/Road Race widebody carbon fiber kit further accented with 18×8-inch Stance Mindset wheels paired with 205/45/15 Toyo R1R tires. Plenty more carbon fiber goodies are also on the car courtesy of Road Race and Carbontrix while the interior packs Racetech race seats and 5-point harnesses.

Hopefully we’ll see this bad boy hit the track one day soon.
