Romeo Ferraris Unveils 250-HP Fiat 500 Abarth Cinquone

Top-of-the-line model priced at a whopping 69,220 Euros.

We are used to seeing tuning projects by Romeo Ferraris, but this is the firm’s first homologated production car. Based on a Fiat 500 Abarth, Romeo Ferraris calls its creation the ‘Cinquone,’ and insists it be referred to as a “small-size gran turismo.” On the outside, the Italian outfit added a widebody kit, increasing the front and rear track, with new bumpers, side skirts, and new hood. An optional carbon-fiber pack adds a host of carbon-fiber goodies, including mirror caps, a rear spoiler and pillar covers, while the Leggero package adds a carbon-fiber hood and tailgate.

Inside, the cabin has been upholstered in Alcantara and comes with Recaro sport seats, carbon-fiber trim and a roll bar. But the company will “satisfy every client request” when it comes to creating a bespoke interior. Romeo Ferraris offers three performance levels for the Cinquone. The entry-level option comes with a 1.4-liter T-Jet engine rated at 160 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque mated to a five-speed manual. The Cinquone S is rated at 210 hp and 228 lb-ft, hitting 62 mph in 5.7 seconds and a 144 mph top speed. And the Cinquone Corsa boasts 248 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque, enabling the pocket rocket to sprint to 62 mph in 5.5 secs and hit a top speed of over 149 mph. Prices for the Romeo Ferraris Cinquone will range from 47,762 to 69,220 Euros.
