2020 Abarth 695 70th Anniversario
Fiat is no stranger to building special edition versions of the Abarth 695, but there is something different about this one. It’s called the Abarth 695 70th Anniversario, and, as the name suggests, it’s a celebratory special edition model that pays homage to Abarth’s 70th anniversary. In keeping with the theme, Fiat will only build 1,949 units of the 695 70th Anniversario. It’s unclear if America will get dibs on a specific number of models, but if you live in Italy, you should get a good chunk of the 1,949 available units, each priced at €34,600. That converts to just under $38,000 based on current exchange rates.
2019 Abarth 595 Esseesse

The Italian brand is also not only celebrating its 120th anniversary this year but the 70th anniversary of Abarth too, hence why it’s bringing this 500 and a limited series version of the Abarth 124 roadster to the auto show.
2019 Abarth 124 Rally Tribute
Abarth is headed to 2019 Geneva Motor Show with a spicy special edition sports car that pays tribute to the Abarth 124 Rally racer that triumphed in the 2018 FIA R-GT Cup. The special edition 124 Spider is appropriately called the Rally Tribute Special Edition, and it packs a collection of exclusive features that celebrates its status as a tribute car to the rally racer that, in addition to winning the R-GT Cup, also collected 40 class victories in the 12 national championships in which it competed. Only 124 units of the Abarth 124 Rally Tribute will be made. Pricing and allocation details haven’t been announced, but expect the special edition 124 to fetch north of $30,000 on account of the base Abarth 124 that starts at $28,295.
Abarth’s got a little surprise up its sleeve and it’s called the 500 Track Experience. The new Track Experience package gives customers a chance to enjoy a unique Abarth 500 that comes with a bevy of nice features offered by the Italian automaker, including sleek paint colors, fancy wheels, and a track day experience in Oulton Park, Donington Park, or Brands Hatch. All those tracks are in the UK, which is a bummer for folks in America, but great news for our Abarth-loving, friends across the pond!
The car itself is an important celebratory vehicle for Abarth. It’s limited to just 65 units representing the 65 years since Abarth was founded by Italian Carlo Abarth.
For those interested in the Abarth 500 Track Experience, the automaker is selling them at all 29 UK dealers at a price tag of £14,990, which is about $24,700 as of 9/4/2014.
It’s not often that a limited-edition vehicle comes with its own track-day pass, so there’s a lot of appeal attached to the 500 Track Experience. At the very least, you can buy one and let loose on any of the three tracks available. The track experience alone is worth a nice price bump.

Rounding out the four Abarth 695 ’fuoriserie’ models that will be in attendance at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show is the 695 Record.
As with the rest of its kind, the 695 Record comes with the usual digs that Abarth is offering to its customers as customizable options dedicated to ensuring top-level uniqueness and exclusivity that you won’t normally find in any other Abarth 695.
The 695 Record belongs in the fuoriserie’s New Heritage Collection with the 695 Scorpio and was built to target a market that understands the homage paid to the Abarth 750 Record Bertone.
The silver body paint of the 695 Record may look a little plain to the eyes, but once you add the red-and-silver checkered roof to the equation, as well as he polished interior trim bearing the same colors, you begin to see the customization angle attributed to Abarth’s fuoriserie program.
Plus, the 695 Record also features the 180-horsepower, 1.4-liter 16v Turbo T-Jet of the standard Abarth 695. A powerful engine plus a classy personalization program always equates to a sweet ride, and the 695 Record is no different.
Abarth’s booth at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show will feature a cavalcade of finely dressed vehicles and a quarter of that belongs to the automaker’s new “fuoriserie,” a program devoted to customers who prefer the exclusivity typical of custom cars together with top performance levels.
One of these models is called the Abarth 695 Black Diamond, a special-edition model from the “New Wave” collection, one that also includes the Abarth 695 Hype. Built and designed to cater to the customer seeking refinement and style on his Abarth, the 695 Black Diamond is arguably the most finely dressed of the four special-edition ’fuoriserie’ models.
The two-tone black and polished grey 695 Diamond was carefully designed to adhere to its name as a sparkling example of the fuoriserie’s exclusivity. Add the checkered roof bearing the same two-tone finish and you have one special edition Abarth 695 that definitely reflects the company’s inspired attention to ensuring that its customers can get the best things out of Abarth.
All four fuoriserie Abarth 695 models will come with the standard 1.4-liter 16v Turbo T-Jet that produces an impressive 180 horsepower.
Abarth’s fuoriserie lineup that’s headed to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show comes with four pretty desirable models, all of which come with their own share of merits.
We couldn’t pick our favorite one so we decided that we loved all of them. Parity...you gotta love it!
One of these models is the Abarth 695 Hype, an aptly named creation, considering that it more than lives up to the hype of being part of the Italian brand’s fuoriserie program. That’s hard enough on its own, considering that individualistic nature of Abarth’s program.
But the 695 Hype pulls it off, remarkable considering the car it shares the stage as part of the New Wave collection - the 695 Black Diamond - is no slouch either.
The former is aimed at younger customers interested in cutting-edge trends, while the latter satisfies those seeking refinement and style.
The 695 Hype’s two-tone livery features a grey finish on the lower part of the vehicle, and a matching olive green color on the hood and the Abarth scorpion-adorned roof of the car, separated only by a yellow strip that goes around the entire length of the car.
Inside, it’s more of the same treatment, which particularly finds its way into the seats, adding a distinctive styling cue that fits in well with Abarth’s fuoriserie program.
The Abarth 695 Hype is powered by a 1.4-liter 16v Turbo T-Jet that develops 180 horsepower, giving the car even more reason to be as desirable as it should be.
The 2012 Paris Auto Show is still two weeks away, but we have already got information on almost every model that will be displayed at the show. For example, Abarth has announced the launch of a new customization program that will offer clients the opportunity to customize their car down to the smallest detail. The new "Fuori Serie" was inspired by the cars that have written the brand’s history, going from the Fiat 750 Record and 124 Sanremo all the way up to the X19 prototype. All of these cars have one thing in common: they are all record-breaking cars.
The 695 "Fuori Serie" to be displayed in Paris features a very cool "Olio Fiat" livery which appeared first on the Fiat 124 Abarth Rally at the 1976 Montecarlo Rally. Under the hood, Fiat has placed the 1.4 16v Turbo T-Jet which will deliver an impressive 180 HP. Each customer will have the possibility to choose between a range of colors and materials that are not offered in the standard product range. These will range from carbon fiber to sports fabrics, from leather to Alcantara, and from glossy to matte liveries.
Abarth is celebrating the launch of the new high-performance 500 and 595 ranges on the UK market with the launch of a special 595 Turismo edition. The model is priced at £17,725 ($21,798 at current rates) when based on the 500 version and at £19,625 ($24,125 at the current rates) when based on the 500C version.
The new 595 Turismo will be distinguished by Titanium Grey front and rear sports grilles, upgraded front and rear dampers, and dark tinted rear windows. For the interior, the model gets a "Turismo" pack that includes Alutex pedals, footrest and door kick-plates, bespoke floor mats, and machined aluminum fuel and oil filler caps. Leather upholstery and automatic climate control will also be offered as standard equipment, while, as an option, Abarth will provide a very cool set of 17-inch 10-spoke Diamond finish alloy wheels combined with red brake calipers.
The Fiat 595 Abarth Turismo is powered by a turbocharged 1.4 T-Jet engine that delivers a total of 160 HP and mated to either a manual gearbox or with Abarth’s MTA (Manual Transmission Automated) semi-automatic gearbox.
Italian automaker Fiat is tapping into its Chrysler ties by having the latter’s in-house aftermarket division, Mopar, partner with Italian parts supplier Magneti Marelli to develop and produce a line-up of Fiat 500 Abarth models.
The first of these special edition vehicles made its debut in Las Vegas and has been christened as the 500 Abarth Venom. A host of modifications were added to the 500 Abarth to give it that special edition feel, including carbon fiber components on the hood and side mirror housings and a large matte-black Scorpion graphic on the roof. The inclusion of the former also allows the little compact car to cut its weight by 200 lbs, which would serve it well when combined with a performance modification.
On that note, Mopar reprogrammed the car’s ECU unit while also adding a sport exhaust system that allows the 500 Abarth Venom to increase the output on the car’s 1.4-liter turbocharged engine from the standard 160 horsepower to 200 horsepower.
The ironic thing about this model and where it made its debut in Las Vegas - by the way, supermodel Catrinel Menghia was on-hand for its unveiling - is that the car won’t be available in the US.
UPDATE 04/10/2012: The Fiat 500 Abarth by Mopar was on hand at the 2012 New York Auto Show. Check out our live images in the gallery provided!
Hit the jump for a full list of upgrades.
A few years after Abarth brought the 695 Tributo Ferrari to the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Italian automaker is set to head to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show with another commemorative, limited edition model that pays homage to another Italian contemporary - the 695 Tributo Maserati.
According to Abarth, the 695 Tributo Maserati is the confluence of the things we love about Abarth and Maserati, particularly the combination of "the highest level of elegance combined with the comforts of a car, but with the handling that’s suitable for everyday driving. "
In terms of its design, the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati comes with a "Pontevecchio Bordeaux" paint finish and matched with upholstery dressed in Poltrona Frau leather beige sand. True to its name as an elegant iteration of the popular Italian hatch, the 695 Tributo Maserati also comes with carbon inserts, as well as a matte finish and trim on the dashboard, a black tricolor leather steering wheel, door panels and rear panels that have been given a gray track treatment by UV-LUX, and a new set of 17" alloy wheels.
As far as powertrain is concerned, the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati will be powered by a 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet engine that produces 180 horsepower and mated to an electro-mechanical Abarth Competition transmission with steering wheel controls.
UPDATE 05/20/2012: Fiat has heard your pleas, people. When the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari was first introduced at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, it was pegged as a prototype model. The Italian automaker didn’t say anything about the car’s production future, but now, they’ve finally come out and said that a production future - a limited one at that - for the Abarth 695 Maserati has been officially announced.
Fiat and Abarth are coming fully loaded to the Bologna Motor Show armed with barrel full of special edition 500s and Puntos. We’ve already touched on the 500 Competizione, the 500 Turismo, and the Abarth 695 Assetto Corse so now we’re pointing the proverbial spotlight on the fourth model headed to Bologna: the Abarth Punto Scorpione Limited Edition.
This particular model is being described as a tribute model to "everyone who loves to pit themselves against any kind of challenge in a never-ending search for speed and performance both on the track and facing a downhill road."
Dressing the part of a sinister-looking, all-black limited edition Abarth, the Punto Scorpione is poised to steal the show, not only because it has such an awesome name, but more so because it will be presented with the “Abarth Nitro” winter kit that will come with plenty of winter-themed accessories, including, but not limited to, the “Nitro Powered by Abarth” snowboard.
Adding more touches to the 99-piece model is a two-tone Nero Scorpione livery that’s enhanced by a special matte black paintwork on the bonnet and roof with special glossy black graphics for the roof and the bonnet. Inside, the special enhancements continue in the form of "Abarth Corsa by Sabelt" black leather seats with red and yellow stitching, a matte black backrest, a leather steering wheel with its own red and yellow stitching, Jaeger driving instruments, and a laser-treated aluminium kick plate with special graphics.
Under its hood, the Scorpione Limited Edition is powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir engine that develops 180 horsepower and 199 lb/ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of 7.5 seconds and a top speed of 134 mph.
