The Fiat 500 Abarth has gained wide-spread recognition as one of the best hot-hatches, with this 695 Tributo being not only the fastest, but most exclusive version.
Exterior styling is very heavily influenced by Ferrari, including the Rosso Corsa or Giallo Fly paint and the 'Scuderia-style' stripes. The 695 also benefits from carbon-fibre wing mirrors and Corsa Grey styling touches, including the wheels. Other exterior touches include Xenon headlamps, quad tail-pipes and the 695 Tributo badging, as pictured.
The interior also benefits from a number of styling changes, most notably the 'Abarth Corsa' bucket seats by Sabelt, with matching red or yellow trim. Further changes include carbon-fibre on the dash, aluminium pedals and a flat-bottomed steering wheel.
Performance-wise, the 695 benefits from the more powerful 1.4-litre Turbo Abarth Essesse engine, that is further boosted to 180bhp. This engine is combined with a five-speed robotised manual gearbox and both can be altered when the driver engages 'Sport' mode. With inclusion of the dual-mode Monza exhaust and increased braking-capacity, the 695 Tributo is truly an 'urban Ferrari.'
All of the above are included on top of standard 500 Abarth options, such as upgraded Hi-Fi, bluetooth and ipod connectivity.
