Romeo Ferraris has introduced their first homologated production vehicle called the Cinquone.

Based on the Fiat 500 Abarth, the Cinquone features a widebody kit that includes a new hood, modified bumpers and revised side skirts. The model also has center-mounted exhaust and custom 18-inch alloy wheels.

Customers can also order a carbon fiber package that adds a variety of carbon fiber components including mirror caps, pillar covers and a rear spoiler - among other things.

If that's not impressive enough, the Leggero package has a carbon fiber hood and tailgate. These modifications enable the model to weigh 970 kg (2,138 lbs) which is 60 kg (132 lbs) less than the standard model.

The interior largely carries over but Romeo Ferraris offers "countless options to satisfy every client request." Key highlights include Recaro sports seats, carbon fiber trim, a roll bar and leather or Alcantara upholstery.

On the performance front, the entry-level Cinquone has a 1.4-liter T-Jet engine with 160 PS (117 kW) and 230 Nm (169 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a five-speed manual transmission which enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 211 km/h (131 mph).

Moving up to the Cinquone S rewards buyers with an upgraded engine that develops 210 PS (154 kW) and 310 Nm (228 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to rocket from 0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and onto a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph).

Last but not least, the Cinquone Corsa boasts 248 PS (182 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the extra oomph, the model accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 240 km/h (149 mph).

Unfortunately, the Cinquone won't come cheap as turnkey prices range from €47,762 for the entry-level hatchback to €69,220 for the Cinquone Corsa Cabrio.
