After they unveiled the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari, now the Italian automaker is once again making a premium connection for its Abarth brand by creating a Fiat 500C tribute special edition for Maserati.
The new Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati is an exclusive convertible which blends the aggression and sportiness of a high-performance car with the refined, elegant aesthetics of a convertible Fiat said.
In keeping with Maserati’s standards, this new Limited Edition is distinguished by excellent handling and great sportiness, together with great attention to comfort, materials and detail.
The Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati features the 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v engine boosted to 180 HP and teamed with the electrically-operated manual Abarth Competizione gearbox with steering wheel controls, which enhances the performance of the engine with reduced gearshift times as well as guaranteeing an experience of superior comfort at the wheel.
In addition, the vehicle is fitted with performance tyres on 17″ alloy wheels featuring a special “Neptun” design from Maserati. The ride and braking system have also been strengthened to cope with the extra power: Brembo 305 mm brake discs that can be dismantled with fixed four-piston caliper and special shock absorbers.
The exterior features a special three-stage clear coat color Pontevecchio Bordeaux, grey fabric electrically controlled soft-top and Xenon headlights.
In accordance with the tradition of Abarth Limited Editions, the already extensive equipment of the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati is expanded through accessories and merchandising designed to enhance the experience of the brand both on board and outside the car, as dictated by the DNA of Abarth and Maserati – more than just a car, a genuine philosophy of life.
