As the name suggested, this converted Fiat 500C is a tribute edition honoring the great Italian automaker Maserati. Nearly identical to the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari, the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati is quipped with a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16-valve engine capable of 180 horsepower. Taming this raw brawn is the Abarth Competizione gearbox with steering column shifting paddles. Riding on 17-inch “Neptun” alloy wheels by Maserati, the car can also put out enough braking power thanks to its Brembo brake system.
In addition to the multi-coat Pontevecchio Bordeaux exterior, designers appointed Poltrona Frau leather with “695″ embossments on the headrests. Easy to read yet unique, the instrument panel stands alone from other thanks to its designer, luxury watch maker Jaeger LeCoultre. But the most noticeable feature will be the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati’s fabric roll-top, electrically controlled for ease of operation.
Limited to 499 units, each comes with matching lifestyle accessories and travel bags. The Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati will make its official debut next month on the exhibit floor of Geneva Motor Show.
