Fiat's performance division Abarth has unveiled three new special edition models slated for an introduction at the Frankfurt motor show next month.
First up is the Abarth 500 Cabrio Italia - another model created to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italian unification. The Abarth 500C (cabriolet)-based model features a 1.4 liter Turbo T-Jet unit that makes 160 PS (118 kW / 158 bhp) and 230 Nm (170 lb-ft) of torque. Top speed is 211 km/h (130 mph) and 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes just 7.4 seconds.
Distinguishing the 500 Cabrio Italia is a chrome plate with satin-effect badge as well as an interior finish in natural leather and carbon fiber touches.
Next is the Abarth 695 Competizione which features the 1.4 liter Turbo T-Jet unit dialed up to 180 PS (132 kW / 178 bhp) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque coupled to a 5-speed Abarth Competizione sequential gearbox. The exterior is a competition gray and the inside gets red stitching and 695 Competizione logos throughout.
The Abarth Punto SuperSport also gets that 180 PS unit, good for a top speed of 216 km/h (133 mph) and a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of 7.5 seconds.
All three models come fitted with "Abarth Corsa by Sabelt" sport seats in a leather upholstery.
