If the 500 Abarth isn't a hot enough hatch for your tastes, FIAT is about to add some Ferrari-flavored performance. AutoExpress released (then retracted) pics and details of the FIAT 695 Tributo Ferrari ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Abarth have radically increassed the the FIAT 1.4-liter turbo from the usual 135 horsepower to over 180 ponies and added paddle shifters to the six-speed gearbox... a very nice package
As it should be, the body shell is finished in Rossa Corsa and features Brembo brakes cross-drilled beneath a appropriate set of spoked alloys. Ferrari engineers were reportedly called-upon to tweak the car's the suspension as well.
