Fiat has released new pictures and details of the Abarth 500C, which will go on sale across Europe later this month

19 Jun 2010 | International News : Italy



Fiat says that the Abarth 500C was made to appeal to female customers "who seek design and elegance but also appreciate the performance of a true sports car", as well as males who are seeking for an affordable cabriolet with some punch.

The Fiat Abarth 500C is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-litre Turbo T-Jet engine that produces 138bhp and 206Nm of torque. Mated to a six-speed automated manual gearbox with paddle shifters, this enables the car to go from 0-100km/h in 8.1 seconds, and a top speed of 205km/h.

The Abarth 500C is available with optional two-tone paintworks for the body, with either racing black and white or two tones of gray. The electrically operated rollover canvas top also comes with two colours, black or titanium gray. There is also a full bodykit along with unique 17-inch alloy wheels like the Abarth 500.

According to Abarth, "Normally, when you use an object you do not think about how it was made or why it was made in a certain way, you simply use it. This does not happen with an Abarth. An Abarth reminds you in every detail and at every moment that it was built with but one purpose: performance. Each of its components expresses its vocation: its incisive engine sound, the noise of its wheels on the asphalt, its attractive design, its race-tuned suspension and acceleration worthy of an out-and-out sports car."
