Yes, you read the title of this article correctly. There is someone who is actually crazy enough to create a custom FIAT 500 with a Lamborghini V12 engine. An engine so large that it actually had to be placed in the trunk of this 500. We came upon the story on Autoblog.com, a trusted and reliable source of everything automotive, and in this case the borderline science-fiction.
The individuals behind this feat of insanity managed to fit the 6.2-liter V12 Lamborghini Murcielago engine in the trunk of redesigned FIAT 500 body. The FIAT was obviously re-scuplted to A) fit the engine, B) have the structural integrity to withstand that much power and C) just because they wanted to make it look mean. The team at Oemmedi Mechanics surely knows how to get attention from the auto industry.
Now like all of us gearheads out there, we are sure you are wondering the same thing? How fast is this thing!? Thing is the team behind this custom build isn’t revealing the top speed yet. Either because they still haven’t perfected the design and expect better results. Or they are too terrified to really push it. Let’s face it dropping a 560 horsepower engine into a 1.1k pound car frame, is ridiculous, nearly comical, but still absolutely amazing!
At Reedman Toll we may not have custom vehicles of this caliber, but we do have is reliable makes and models. Protected under warranty, and battle tested. We also doubt that anyone could insure that FIAT 500. View our inventory of new FIAT 500s, without a Lambo engine.

Abarth and the FIAT brand have a history of of collaboration going back 45 years and and resulting in nearly 900 individual races victories. It is with this racing pedigree in mind that Reedman-Toll FIAT introduces to you the new FIAT 500 Abarth.
In Europe, Abarth is considered a separate brand—one with substantial racing heritage. The 500 Abarth benefits from this connection with a suspension that has been substantially revised from the normal car’s. New front springs are 40 percent stiffer than the regular 500’s, while the rears are 20 percent stiffer. Koni shocks go up front, the car sits 0.6 inch lower than a normal 500, and there’s more negative camber now. The Abarth’s steering is quicker, and the front brakes grow an inch in diameter to 11.1 inches. The standard wheels are 16s, and 17s are an option.
