Alonso and Massa given new Abarth 695 Tributo Ferraris

They’re used to their cars being a bit faster than this but Ferrari F1 drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa were stoked when they were each given an Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari to celebrate their domination of the Italian Grand Prix last weekend where they achieved a 1st and 3rd finish.

The new Fiat 500 Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari confirms the consolidated links between Fiat, Abarth and Ferrari, which is beginning to see some serious shared projects.

The Abarth Tributo Ferrari is motivated by a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v engine, tuned to develop 132 kW and an electrically-operated Abarth competition gearbox with race-inspired paddle gearshifts.

The drivers’ Fiat 500s are finished in Scuderia Red with Racing Grey details and are enhanced with carbon fibre parts like mirror covers and gear quadrant.

A numbered and limited series of these cars went on sale in July and has already notched up more than 600 orders, over half of which are destined for the UK, France and Germany.

Karl Abarth and Enzo Ferrari’s passion and dedication helped create the legend of Italian motor racing that is universally recognised today. The men behind both marques followed very similar careers: they were first drivers, then tuners, and finally heads of companies that command genuine respect in the world of motor racing.
