Most readers will probably never become of one Fiat Ottimo have heard. It was a Dodge-Dart blend with hatchback that was specially developed for the Chinese market and, in terms of design, was a mixture of a Fiat Bravo and an Alfa Giulietta. However, this vehicle was a huge flop on the market, so that it was back in 2017 after only four years of production without a successor disappeared from the market. The notchback version of the Ottimo, which was named Viaggio, could not really hold its own either, which is why it was discontinued without a successor. Fiat is now concentrating on the production of various Jeep models in China instead of trying to regain market share with its own new models. We are now introducing you to a very noticeably modified example of the Ottimo, which would certainly attract a lot of attention in Europe as well.
Evil Fiat with a diabolical look.
The first thing to fall is that metallic black foil that completely changed the character of the originally snow-white Fiat, and made the compact car, which was so innocent, appear sportier. But only various modifications to the vehicle make the Fiat an eye-catcher that could score at many tuning meetings. These include, for example bodykit, a Lowering and black 18-inch wheels in pentagram design, on which tires in size 235/40 R18 were mounted. The evil and diabolical look is created by red LED headlights as well as red LED daytime running lights in an arched design that gives the entire front a dark appearance. Together with the black foiling, this results in a coherent tuning concept, and you can see exactly which path the tuner has taken with the project. Red moldings on the front and on the side fit harmoniously into the gloomy concept, and the Air scoop on the bonnet immediately signals to the person in front that this is not a conventional Ottimo.
Two fat exhaust pipes in a symmetrical arrangement as well as the powerful diffuser, which was also kept completely in black, also continue the tuning philosophy at the rear, which was given to the project. Not only do they join in red caliperswho live behind the black pentagram rims, but also a powerful one roof spoiler, the one with his two huge Trim almost reminded of the devil's horns. In addition, they are black taillights matching, and harmonize with the color scheme of the car. A small gag on the edge are those Abarth logos, which were attached to the car instead of the usual Fiat emblems. In our opinion, the vehicle is well tuned and follows a clear line.
Red and black dominate the interior.
In order to harmonize perfectly with the gloomy exterior, the colors Red and black also used in the interior. Next to one Carbon sports steering wheel with red elements also held red leather seats in the Fiat move. So were the Door panels in red and black to harmonize with the overall concept. A bit superfluous from our point of view, but the small details are one that cannot be overlooked Spider-Man figures, which were attached to the center console.
1,4-liter turbo gasoline engine provides propulsion.
A 1,4-liter turbo heart beats in this Fiat Ottimo, generating 150 hp and 230 Newton meters of maximum torque. Nothing has been changed on the drive and it is completely standard. Equipped in this way, the car sprints into 9,5 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h and the propulsion ends at 207 kilometers per hour. That's enough for a car like this, because you can't hit the gas in China anyway, as there are strict speed limits.
Our conclusion on this Fiat Ottimo:
Chapeau! Such a tuning concept with so many modifications has to be put on the wheels first, without the vehicle looking like a craft shack. The tuner did a good job and created his dream Fiat, which would definitely be well received in Europe.
