So many things to uprate such as suspension and brakes along with the fact insurance companies hate modifications I think you should just buy an abarth honestly especially all the little things that are different you'll be surprised how the cost piles up!

I thought that too, possible, but uneconomic.

Something I've always thought would be amazing fun, but as others have said, probably not cost effective.

Might be other engines you could drop in. Let's see a HEMI jammed into a 500.

Probably be easier and cheaper to make an Abarth look like a 1.2
