Fiat Panda gets sporty
‘100 HP’ special edition promises 115mph
Fiat will launch its most sporting Panda so far at the Paris motor show. The Panda 100 HP has a 1.4-litre 16v petrol engine with 100PS (99bhp) at 6000rpm. It also puts out a heady 97lb ft of torque at 4259rpm, helping the endangered species to romp up to 62mph in 9.5sec and eventually on to 115mph.
Cosmetically the little car gets an extra spoiler and chromed exhaust pipes, along with special bumpers, a sporty grille and new 15in alloys. Inside there’s more chrome and a leather steering wheel.
At launch a special ‘Pandemonio’ pack will also be available which, amongst other things, will paint the door mirrors and brake callipers red. The 100 HP will come in five colours: red, black and white, and two new colours, blue and grey.
