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.

From the C/D Archives: Fiat 124 Sport Coupe Tested

Jul 16 2014 12:48pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

INDIA-FIAT-AUTO-ECONOMY
When man gets around to acknowledging his vehicular accomplishments with an Automotive Hall of Fame, the Fiat 124 Sport Coupe should be assigned to a pedestal of prominence for its duality. Today’s streets seem to feature only two types of cars: those created to provide driving pleasure or the vast fleet of automobiles aimed at comfort and utility. But this Fiat adroitly bridges he gap. It is fun to drive, easy to look at and an effic ...

Filed under: Sedan, Marketing/Advertising, Videos, Chrysler "The 200 sets the benchmark, for us, on how we plan to develop cars going forward." - Marissa Hunter Is the 2015 Chrysler 200 the most important new product for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles?
