Fiat 500 Abarth for Tokyo

While most of us were expecting Fiat to unveil the turbocharged version of its 500 at next year’s Geneva Show yesterday during the worldwide media presentation in Torino, Italy, Fiat Automobile’s CEO (not Fiat Group) Luca De Meo, announced that the 500 Abarth will make its public appearance at the forthcoming Tokyo Show this October!

We talked to several journalists that attended the media presentation in Torino, but unfortunately no one managed to dig out any information concerning the Abarth’s powertrain. We suspect though that the range-topping 500 will wear the Grande Punto’s 1.4-litre turbocharged unit that’s available in 120Hp and 150Hp guises.


Unfortunately, the 500 Abarth didn't make its world debut as quoted above due to high demand in Europe.
