Fiat Abarth 595 50th Anniversary Edition Debuts at Frankfurt Auto Show

Sep 5 2013, 3:30pm CDT | by

Special Abarth isn't coming to the US

Fiat has debuted a new Abarth branded version of the 500 at the Frankfurt Auto show to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Abarth. The limited-edition 500 has 180 hp engine making it one of the most powerful 500s produced.

The downside for American fans of Fiat is that this limited edition version isn't coming to the US. Fiat will make only 299 examples of this car according to reports. It would make more sense to make 595. The good news is that some the specifications on the special edition Fiat will find their way into other versions in the US.

One of those features is the five-speed semiautomatic transmission with paddle shifters. That is definitely coming to the US. The 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbo engine is also getting about in output at 20 hp to produce the 180 hp seen in the limited-edition for other US models.

Filed under: SUV, Plants/Manufacturing, Jeep, Off-Road Let's make this very plain - the city of Toledo, OH loves its Jeeps. It loves them so fervently that the very rumor of the Jeep Wrangler moving out of its traditional home prompted the city's mayor, D. Michael Collins, and Ohio Gov. John Kasich to hold a weekend conference call with Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne. "The purpose of this call was for the mayor and governor to gain cla ...

Fiat-Chrysler Trademarks “Trackhawk”—Is the Company Hellcatting All the Things?

Oct 6 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

So, uh, this is awesome: Per Allpar, Fiat-Chrysler recently registered a trademark for “Trackhawk”. Given that the “Trailhawk” moniker is currently applied to an off-road-centric Cherokee model, it’s patently obvious that the new badge is destined for Jeep and that it will stand for on-pavement performance. When you’re talking high-performance Jeeps, that conversation currently starts and stops with the Grand Cherokee SRT. But could t ...

Opel Debuts New Corsa Hatchback in Paris, Nails Most Confusing Engine Lineup Ever Award

Oct 3 2014 6:58pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Mainstream car, hot entrance: This is the script Opel followed for the introduction of its new fifth-generation Corsa hatchback. The successful subcompact Opel debuted with a little help from German supermodel Claudia Schiffer at the 2014 Paris auto show. Oh, and the less blonde and even less leggy Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann, Opel’s CEO, also was there. In Europe, the Corsa competes with vehicles like the Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Polo, Renault Clio, and the Fiat Punto, the latter of ...

Fiat 500X scampers across the Alps

Oct 2 2014 4:29pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Paris Motor Show, Crossover, Hatchback, Fiat It's been a long time coming, but it's finally here. It's the new Fiat 500X: the rounder, somehow even more retro version of the Jeep Renegade. Joining an ever-expanding Cinquecento lineup alongside the 500, 500C and 500L, the new 500X is - to our eyes at least - the most handsome yet... better looking, at any rate, than the somewhat ungainly Mini Countryman. But despite its mor ...
