Will India get the taste of "Real Italian Job"?
Fiat owned Abarth recently launched a video teasing the limited edition tricolor pack Abarth 595. As we have heard, only 300 units will be available in three different colours: Officina Red, Gara White and Podium Blue. The limited edition Abarth 595s will sport Abarth side stripes and black ORVMs, 17 inch alloy wheels with titanium finishing, red brake calipers; while inside it will sport a steering wheel with tricolor Abarth emblem. These limited edition triclour pack Abarth 595s will get a range of stylish equipments. In India Fiat launched Abarth 595 Competizione hot hatchback last year, which was also showcased at the recently concluded 2016 New Delhi Auto Expo. Although it is unlikely that India will see any of these limited edition Abarth 595s.
Under the hood of these cars will be a 1.4 litre turbo T-Jet 16 valve petrol engine mated to 5 speed manual transmission which will pump out 140 hp peak power. The video Abarth released shows three Abarth 595s racing in two cities – Turin in Italy and London in UK. The video shows three men stealing an “Abarth” plan and delivering that to some unknown recipient. The limited edition tricolour pack is priced at £15,150, which is equivalent to INR. 14.54 lakh. As abarth released the video just before the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, we expect they will showcase the limited edition models at the automotive event.
