It’s not the first time we see a limited edition of the Fiat 500 Abarth and it probably won’t be the last time we see one.
Fiat has promised that they plan to make lots and lots of limited editions to suit various buyers of their mini hot hatchback.
The Monza edition of the Fiat 500 Abarth will not feature crazy power or weird handling but it will feature what’s possibly the most distinctive set of looks we’ll get to see on a little Fiat.
The color choice is limited to “Icy White” and there is a lovely accent given by the two red and blue stripes that go across the bonnet, the sides and even the top. To make you feel extra special and your passengers as well the theme has been considered on the inside.
The interior will also be a tad distinctive thanks to a custom plate and gear knob which wear the number of your 500 Monza.
I did say the new Fiat 500 Abarth Monza looks great, but wait till you hear how it goes. The engine now develops a shocking 260 horsepower.
Naturally, the performance figures become amazing but I’m more bothered about the massive wheels they needed to accommodate the new equally large brake discs. These come from Brembo and are 280 mm across with four pistons each.
That’s all very impressive, but I do love the power, the looks and especially those Romeo Ferraris wheels which are just to die for. Another important thing in my mind is that Fiat didn’t mess about with this version of the 500 Abarth and called it a 2011 model.
It’s a 2010 because let’s face it, the 10 produced come together well and will probably be sold within minutes.
