Abarth is no stranger to the Tokyo Auto Salon, being a regular attendee for many years now. At this year’s show the Italian automaker showed off its 595 Competizione and 695 Edizione Maserati models.

The limited production 695 Edizione Maserati is quite the expensive compact, chiming in at around $50,000. Featuring a “Bordeaux” red exterior paint job, the convertible Abarth packs 180 hp along with special 17-inch wheels, Brembo brake calipers and Maserati-inspired accents. Though it features 40 hp and 33 lb-ft of torque more than the standard 500C, it’s price tag leaves much to be desired.

As for the 595 Competizione, 17-inch wheels pack a more track-oriented vehicle. It features cross-drilled front and rear brake rotors, a Monza exhaust upgrade, and Sabelt seats in fabric upholstery. The 595 Competizione is priced more competitively – and realistic – at around $23,000 while the convertible starts at around $25,000.
