For the premium market, Fiat has created a Fiat 500C tribute special edition for Maserati under the Abarth brand. This is targeting the same segment as the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari. At the Geneva Motor Show, Abarth will display the Abarth 695 Tribute Maserati. Only 499 examples of the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati will be built.
It is powered by a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v engine with 180 HP (132 kW) and comes with an electrically-operated manual Abarth Competizione gearbox with steering wheel paddles. Its exhaust has been installed with a "Record Monza" variable back-pressure "dual mode" volume control system with hexagonal shaped tips.
This is the same design used by the Maserati cars. Its suspension has been upgraded to feature 17-inch "Neptun" alloy wheels, which were designed by Maserati. It also gets Brembo brake discs and calipers and improved shock absorbers. Its exterior gets an exceptional three-stage clearcoat color Pontevecchio Bordeaux, Some Xenon headlights and a grey fabric electrically controlled soft top.
Its seats are covered in sand beige Poltrona Frau leather and its headrest has the number "695" heat-printed on it. The dashboard and gearbox trim have a matt-finish carbon appearance with the 695 logo. Its black leather steering wheel comes with tri-color leather inserts.
The Jaeger LeCoultre brand has specifically built this instrument panel. In addition, it gets an aluminum pedal set, sill plates, carbonfiber kick plate with customized "Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati" graphics and the plaque with the car's series number. Just like all the Abarth Limited Editions, the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati allows its owners to travel in style. Two grey leather travel bags are included in its Tramontano Tribute to Abarth Travel Pack.
