Why would anybody call a Fiat Uno the “Dragster? Well, this is what can happen when the 1980s Fiat subcompact whose most powerful engine had 118 horsepower gets boosted to 600 horsepower.
Of course, such the car would just waste all that power without the proper supporting mods, we have to tell you this example we have here has been turned into the drag racing animal – at least as far as the front-wheel-drive vehicle can serve such the role.
Speaking of which, to aid a two-liter turbo under the hood put its power down, the hatchback has been gifted with monstrous front tires and the wheelie bar. You can think of this as the Italian equivalent of you local drag strip’s overly boosted Civic.
In terms of 1/4 mile performance, this video lets us know this Uno is a 9-second car. The video below allows us to see the reinvented Fiat pulling the 9.32s run at 148 mph (239 km/h) and you will find this at the 1:36 point.
However, this uploader of the video lets us know the machine’s personal 1,320 feet record sits at 9.08s at 161 mph. Here you can see some show runs on the dirty and not glued airstrip during the 2016 Italian Drag Racing Trophy and then a few runs on the better and glued airstrip during the 2016 Wide Open Spring National event at Rivanazzano Airport, this YouTuber explains.
