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.

[To protect its windshield from rocks and trees and whatever else you might encounter on a rally in the early '70s, this Fiat Abarth 124 Spider had a sort of ante-windshield made of mesh bolted to the fenders. I have never seen one outside of this press picture. Photo Credit: Fiat ...

2016 Fiat 500X Caught Testing in Michigan: X Marks the Spot?

Sep 5 2014 10:12am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

What It Is: A fully camouflaged Fiat 500X mule captured while refueling in southeastern Michigan. Despite being cloaked entirely in basic black for maximum slimming effect, it’s clear the car underneath is sporting some rather exaggerated round, soft shapes. Although most of the bulges are simply inserts intended to throw gawkers off the trail, they can’t disguise the X’s similarities to the 500L, the 500’s larger, less-cute five-door sibling. Immediately obvious are the absence of th ...

A Little Tribute To An Overshadowed Big Brother: The Fiat 600

Sep 1 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Right now, the most famous Fiat (at least in the US) is the Fiat 500. The 500 has become the iconic Fiat, the mascot of Fiat, and while it's certainly a car that earned that status, I've always felt that it's older big brother, the Fiat 600, never really got the c ...
