When is a Ferrari not a Ferrari? Apparently, when it's a Fiat...
Meet the new Fiat Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari, which debuts at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show. Built upon the Abarth 500 esseesse, Fiat says the Ferrari-themed compact car is designed to give Ferrari customers "a small but exciting small car for urban mobility."

The Tributo Ferrari also receives a special sport suspension, Brembo four-piston brake calipers up front, and 17-inch wheels patterned after Ferrari's rolling stock. We're told the 695 can reach a top speed of 140 mph, and can spring from 0 to 62 mph in under 7 seconds, making it slightly faster than an 500 Abarth esseesse. A special leather-trimmed interior, complete with Ferrari-inspired gauges, is also par for the course.
Fiat hasn't specified exactly how many of the limited-edition 695 Tributo Ferrari models will be built, but every example will come painted in "Scuderia Red."
