Abarth has announced plans to offer a special edition 500 Custom Track Package to celebrate the company's 65th anniversary.

Production will be capped at 65 cars and all of them will have a Record Grey Metallic exterior paint scheme matched with yellow brake calipers, satin steel dual exhaust pipes and Diamond Finish ten-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside the cabin there will be a rear privacy glass along with a new seven-inch TFT instrument panel and sport seats. There's also a Blue&Me Bluetooth hands free system with controls mounted on the steering wheel.

Power comes from the familiar 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engine outputting 135 bhp (101 kW) and 206 Nm (152 lb-ft), enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 127 mph (204 km/h).

Priced at 14,990 GBP, the Abarth 500 Custom Track Package will come bundled with the Abarth Track Experience giving customers the opportunity to race at circuits such as Donington Park, Brands Hatch and Oulton Park.
