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.

Car Review: 2015 Chrysler 200 C AWD

Sep 25 2014 2:31pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

  It’s that time of the year again where the auto industry starts handing out the awards hardware. But before we get too knee-deep in “car of the year” trophies, let’s get this over with right now and name the new Chrysler 200 as the “most improved” new car for 2015. I’ll make this brief: the outgoing 2010 to 2014 Chrysler 200 sedan was, to be kind, a dud. A quick rehash of the woeful Chrysler Sebring that debuted for ...
