In our latest video find of David and Goliath, we tip our hats to a Mighty Mouse that goes by the name of the Fiat Abarth 500. The 1.4-litre turbocharged engine in the 'essesse' packs 160 horsepower and isn't too intimidating. Mention the words STI, as attached behind Subaru WRX, and you have the name of a car that brings nostalgic reminiscences about being a warrior that can beat up on a lot of "boy-racer" cars.
What we all expect to find in the video is a WRX STI pulling away from the Fiat without the Subaru driver even thinking to look in their rear-view mirror. It would be expected when you have about double the horsepower and an almost equal amount of torque at your disposal. But when you click past the jump, you will find that it doesn't seem to be that easy to shake the Abarth 500.
Click past the fold to see the two battle it out on Italy's Fanciacorta racetrack.
