Back at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Abarth unveiled its 695 Tributo Maserati, a custom Fiat 500C inspired by fellow Italian automaker, Maserati. The special edition model will now make it to production as the 695 Edizione Maserati.
The Maserati Edition Abarth model will be a 500C offered only in the Pontevecchio Bordeaux color seen above, which comes from Maserati’s catalog. It will roll on 17-inch Neptune wheels with Brembo brakes while the 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet engine will push out 180-hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. That’s 40-hp and 33 lb-ft of torque more than the standard Abarth 500C.
On the inside, the production model will be just like the one we saw at Geneva, sporting sand beige Poltrana Frau later with ‘695’ stitched onto the headrests. Accents include matte-carbon on the dash and seat trim, a black leather steering wheel and a Jaeger LeCoultre-produced clock on the instrument panel.
Only 499 units of the 695 Edizione Maserati will be made available, all in Europe. Pricing has not yet been announced.
