The Abarth Code:
It sprung from the piercing vision of Karl Abarth almost a century ago: go faster, win more. It served as the simplest cornerstone upon which a well-crafted empire of finely tuned performance was built. You start with the best ingredients and you season them with the rarest blend of handed-down knowledge until you have a recipe that is all-but unstoppable. Engines. Brakes. Purposeful design. Statements stitched in leather. Details that project the difference but are always tailored straight to the heart of pure performance. On racetracks. On highways. And now, on continents. This is the vision of Mr. Abarth. It is the Abarth Code.
Heavy Metal in Attitude Only.
The FIAT 500 Abarth sets the tone from the ground on up. Its aerodynamic styling reflects countless hours of wind tunnel sculpting and amplifies the legendary lines from any angle. Chrome door handles and optional contrasting side graphics add to the brazen look and let the most casual passerby know that this car means business. Opt for the optional lightweight 17" x7" forged-aluminum wheels with 3-Season Pirelli ultra high-performance tires and the 500 Abarth's aerodynamic attitude sites on even bolder stance.
Extreme craftsmanship shows itself in the handsome soft upper panel and leather-wrapped instrument cluster brow with detailed Rosso stitching. A classic center panel and emboldened air outlets add to the interior's appeal. Aesthetic comfort items like the easy-to-reach center stack, leather-wrapped park brake handle, shift knob, and three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with shaped thumbrests and flattened bottom are inspired by motorsports track conditions.
