Just like the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari, Fiat is once again making a premium connection for its Abarth brand by creating a Fiat 500C tribute special edition for Maserati. On the occassion of the Geneva Motor Show which takes place in just a few weeks, Abarth will unveil the Abarth 695 Tribute Maserati.

Limited to only 499 units the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati features a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v engine with 180 HP (132 kW) via an electrically-operated manual Abarth Competizione gearbox with steering wheel paddles. Exhaust gets "Record Monza" variable back-pressure "dual mode" volume control system with hexagonal shaped tips - same design as Maserati cars. Suspension is upgraded with 17-inch "Neptun" alloy wheels designed by Maserati, Brembo brake discs and calipers and upgraded shock absorbers.

The exterior features a special three-stage clearcoat color Pontevecchio Bordeaux, grey fabric electrically controlled soft top and Xenon headlights.

Inside the seats are upholstered in sand beige Poltrona Frau leather with the number "695" heat-printed on the headrest. The dashboard and gearbox trim receive matt-finish carbon look with 695 logo. The black leather steering wheel gets tri-color leather inserts, while the instrument panel has been specifically produced by the Jaeger LeCoultre brand. Other details include an aluminium pedal set, sill plates, carbon fibre kick plate with customised "Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati" graphics and the plaque with the car's series number.

Lastly, as with all Abarth Limited Editions, the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati makes its lifestyle statement with the Tramontano Tribute to Abarth Travel Pack, consisting of two grey leather travel bags.
