Can we consider it the first supercar from the Fiat brand? Yes and no, let’s just say you’ll never look at your car the same way again. Here is the Turinese with an engine worthy of a Bugatti, incredible stuff.
Have you ever wondered why fiat Don’t build supercars? Indeed, there is such a car with the Turin brand on the hood, even if no one had ever seen it in circulation before today. This car can deliver just as much power as a Bugatti Chiron…and in a way, it’s more comfortable, too. Let’s go and discover the real Italian rocket you’ve never seen before.
Stingy for supercars
Come to think of it, it’s singular that a brand like Fiat doesn’t have it Not even a supercar Or at least a sports car at list market prices. The Turin-based brand is one of the few Italian brands in the segment that does not have at least one high-performance car in its history: practically all Italian brands, even those not famous for their supercars, have one.
In fact, we can recall the Maserati MC12, produced by a brand that is usually only interested in luxury sedans or the Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione del Biscione which also is more interested for sedans and crossovers more recently. Lancia even produced the 037 and Delta Integrale in road version, albeit in a limited series. What is waiting for Fiat to make its move and produce the first supercar?
Something is changing
Data in hand, among the most powerful Fiat cars ever – except obviously racing cars – we find Fiat coupe, perhaps the closest thing to a supercar the brand has ever produced … is the Ulisse which, however, is a pickup truck, which says a lot about the decidedly not-so-distinguished relationship the Turin-based company has with this market segment. To find a real champion in this segment, we have to go back to the early 20th century with the Mefisto, a car specially designed to break the absolute speed record.
But beware of underestimating the Turin brand: At this year’s Paris Motor Show, a Fiat-branded car with more than 1,000 horsepower actually debuted, much to the astonishment of onlookers. The car is pretty cool, even if it’s not a mass-produced model. Above all, it can be The six-seater The fastest in the world.
Multiple, from one way to the other
The experiment conducted by the French Sylvain Levy, along with Pierre Chabrier, was to build a Fiat car capable of providing at least a thousand horses to participate in the so-called Hill Climb races, the acceleration races in which they are arduous and need many horses, but also small size, relatively. What is the best Multipla vehicle for this challenge?
The car, the creation of which was supported by A fundraiser That recovered more than a million euros allowing the company, to fit a modified Chevrolet Corvette engine to deliver record-breaking horsepower that propelled it to 340 kilometers per hour with a 0-100 separation achievable in two and a half seconds. It is unfortunate that the car is no longer a six-seater because it would have been possible, as we have suggested, to break a previously unattended record.
Due to this, Multipla no longer looks so awkward even if such sharp acceleration makes it more suitable for drag racing than other types of competition. Who knows maybe We’ll see him soon Busy humiliating some supercars in the famous quarter mile. What do you think that?
