Fiat's 595 Abarth 50th Anniversary is the Most Powerful

Special Editions / Comments

Less is more...even after half a century.

Back at the 1963 Turin Motor Show, Abarth revealed the original 595 which, like today's Abarth, was a display of powerful performance packed into a small package. The first 595 was also derived from the original Fiat 500 and was the car that helped the Abarth take its first steps in the performance field. To commemorate 50 years of the scorpion, Fiat's performance division has announced it'll debut the 595 Abarth 50th Anniversary edition at this month's Frankfurt Motor Show.

Powered by a turbocharged 1.4-liter T-Jet engine with 180 horsepower, the automaker claims this little pocket rocket is the most powerful 595 ever produced. Its styling is basically a modern interpretation of the original's, specifically with the exterior colors, Abarth logos, and the original "Fiat Abarth 595" graphics. Other features include 17-inch alloy wheels, Brembo brakes and a "Record Monza" variable back-pressure "dual mode" exhaust. The interior features red leather sport seats with white inserts and red stitching along with some historical logos on the steering wheel and kick plate. Production will be limited to just 299 units.
