Official images of the new confusingly named Fiat 500 Abarth esseesse have been released and as expected the car is about as sharp as a Italian hatch can be.

The esseesse is decked out with a full body kit consisting of a new front fascia, lower side skirts and a redesigned rear bumper with a diffuser and pair of chrome exhaust tips, while 17-inch wheels and a small spoiler finish off the look.

Inside, a set of bolstered bucket seats keep driver and passenger snug in the bends and expect a revised IP, red trim and Abarth logos are embossed into the dash. No engine specs have been released yet, but expectations are that  the turbocharged 1.4-liter should put around 160 hp through a six-speed manual before it reaches the front wheels through a Q2 Torsen C limited slip differential.

All details will be fully revealed at the Paris Motor Show.
