In our dreams - Tata Nano Abarth version
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
The rife speculation on the Nano's identity (as Tata or Fiat) in Latin America is still on as this drawing flies out of our good friend Chin's scrap book.
He's illustrated the Tata Nano Abarth version, which to some would mean stupidity. But hold your horses as more powerful engines, possibly sourced from Fiat, are likely to serve the Nano when it lands in Europe.
According to Ratan Tata, his company's JV with Fiat is destined for bigger things. A possible re-look resulting in a wider scope will mean Fiat and Tata will not stop with just sharing engines and technology in India alone. Fiat could make a ultra-quick version of its popular Multijet engine line to suit the Nano's needs.
Fiat could also strap the Nano with a super quick FIRE petrol engine and that coupled to the feather light body could make the Nano as quick to the 3-digit barrier as the Fiat 500 Abarth.
Wait, I don't think the title agrees to what I've just said.
Better to enjoy the images.
