Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Maserati Edition UK pricing announced

Fiat has decided to wait until the end of the year to launch the Abarth 695 Maserati Edition, but we can reveal to you that the pricing will start at £32,000 (on-the-road). The Fiat 500C special edition model was shown for the first time in March at the Geneva Motor Show and will be limited to a production run of 499 units.

Power comes from a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v engine that generates 180 PS (132 kW / 178 bhp) and is mated with a manual Abarth Competizione gearbox which is electronically operated with steering wheel controls. It enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) in under 7 seconds before reaching a top speed in excess of 225 kph (140 mph).

The exterior gets a special three-layer Pontevecchio Bordeaux livery and is well matched to the 17-inch Maserati-inspired Neptune design alloy wheels. Each model receives special Abarth 695 Maserati Edition graphics and serial number plates ranging from 1 to 499.
