Fiat creates special 500 for 100th birthday

Fiat 500 Abarth 100 fq

A special Fiat 500 Abarth variant has been created to commemorate Karl Abarth’s 100th (born on November 15, 1908) birthday. Not just a styling exercise, the 500 Abarth “DA O A 100” tribute comes with an upgraded 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Acceleration to 100kmh takes just 7.3 seconds, helped along by shortened gear ratios. Suspension is revised as well, with lowered springs and new 17-inch alloys fitted with low-profile Pirelli PZero Neros.

The ‘100 is shined up with Nuvolari Grey paint along with special silver side stripes and chrome-plated badges and side mirrors. Inside, that color scheme is repeated in leather with contrasting stitching. If you want one, better get your name on the list now, as Fiat’s only planning to build 101 of the unique 500s.
