Fiat will introduce the Fuori Serie customization program at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, showing a custom 500 Abarth. With the new program, customers will be able to work with Abarth engineers and designers to create the 500 of their dreams. Besides the Fuori Serie show car, Fiat will show a 500 Abarth 595 turismo, Abarth 595 competizione, and Abarth 695 Edizione Maserati.
Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Fuori Serie Abarth Fuori Serie cars will be based on the 180-hp Fiat 500 Abarth and each will come with a certificate of authenticity. Owners will be able to specify interior and exterior colors and add carbon fiber and personalization plates. An upgraded JBL audio system will also be available.
On the performance side, the turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine inhales through an Abarth-specific air filter and exhales through a Record Monza dual-mode exhaust system. The engine is mated to an Abarth Competizione manual transmission with steering wheel controls. The suspension will feature Koni dampers, while the electric power steering system features a sport mode accessible by the sport/overboost button that also engages the engine’s sport mode. The special Fiat 500 gets unique 17-inch alloy wheels and fixed Brembo front brake calipers. Other upgrades include HID headlights, black Abarth Corse seats with yellow stitching (from Sabelt), carbon-look body parts, and racing pedals.
From here, customers who choose to customize their Fiat 500s can go with parts from the Heritage collection, which celebrates Abarth’s past and New Wave, which looks to today’s supercars for its inspiration.
