It appears that the Japanese have also embraced Italy’s compact Fiat 500, but this was hardly what we expected from a Japanese tuner. Office-K out in Japan got their hands on a limited edition Fiat Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari and figured it’d look a whole lot better in chrome.

The Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari comes in its own Scuderia Red finish, but Office-K didn’t really care for that shade. They wrapped the entire compact in chrome vinyl while applying racing stripes in Italy’s infamous colors. Surprisingly nothing else was done to the vehicle, leaving the upgraded 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder with 180-hp.

Abarth’s 695 Tributo Ferrari features its own aero package, 17-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, carbon mirrors, “Record Monza” dual exhaust and suspension upgrades as well. On the inside, Abarth outfits the Tributo Ferrari with a pair of carbon fiber bucket seats, flat-bottomed leather steering wheel with red inserts, and carbon fiber trim.

Check out a video showing off the shiny, chrome Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari after the break.

    I think this is a really unedorfwll little car. Having said that, if everyone who actually knew what an Abarth was, went out and purchased one, it would not generate enough sales to justify the cost of certification.I guess bringing it in as an Abarth is good because most Americans would have no idea what it is. I am not sure that being trimmed in Scuderia Red will make a hell of a lot of difference. If they just imported it as a Fiat, they would have to deal with two generations of Fix It Again Tony jokes.It would be a fun car to add to a product line, but it will never generate the volume necessary to launch a car company in this market. It is no MINI. And there is no way it is going to save Chrysler.

    Save Chrysler? Chrysler doesn’t need saving. They’re doing just fine now with Fiat’s leadership. Their sales haven’t been this good in forever. You want a car company that needs some help right now, that’s Honda. Far from their old selves right now.

    Also, having owned a MINI Cooper S, they’re one of the worst constructed vehicles I’ve ever owned. Fun as hell to drive, don’t get me wrong. But the car felt like it was put together with duct tape and bubble gun. The Fiat is much better assembled.
