Fiat announced that it will premiere the special edition Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. The Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari is powered by a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v, tuned to develop over 180 HP. This is combined with an MTA (Manual Transmission Automated) electromechanical gearbox with race-inspired paddle gearshift that makes full use of the engine’s performance by reducing gearshift times. The Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari also comes with 17″ alloy wheels, Brembo 284 mm multi-section brake discs with fixed four-piston calipers and special shock absorbers.
The Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari comes with a Scuderia paint job, carbon fiber door mirrors and the black leather steering wheel is characterised by red leather inserts and a tricolour hub on which the MTA gearshift paddles are mounted, while the instrument panel is specially made by Jaeger, and inspired by typical Ferrari instrumentation.
