Fiat 500 Fuori Serie by Abarth

Italian carmaker Fiat Group wants more from its Abarth brand in terms of customization. The specialists have developed a new programme called the Fuori Serie and they will launch it later this month at the Paris Motor Show. The customers interested in the programme will have the opportunity to talk directly to the manufacturer and explain exactly what they want, down to the smallest detail. A group of very talented engineers and designers will turn their desires into reality. This is what the carmaker declared. It seems that only the models of the Fuore Series will get the power tuning that enables them to produce 178 horsepower and are the only ones that will also feature the exclusive 695 brand.

To ease the selection process for their customers, the Italian tuner has developed two collections. The first one refers to the liveries and exterior colors and the other one refers to the special materials and trim levels. Here they offer carbon finishes, personalization plates for each driver and also different technology accessories like the JBL audio system provided by Harman. Abarth will showcase a 695 model, a 500 mini 178 horsepower version covered in a livery inspired by the Fiat Abarth 131 Mirafiori Olio Fiat rally car of the late 1970s, just so that we can imagine better the possibilities they offer with the new programme.

The same model will also feature carbon fiber plate holders, A- and B-pillar decals and mirror caps and last, but not least hood vents. The latter look seems to be a bit to hard to believe. For the current collection, the Italian tuner offered to the Fiat 500 Fuori Serie exterior liveries inspired by different cars that had an important role in the history of the brand. Here we can remember the Fiat 124 Sanremo, the Fiat 750 Record and the Fiat X19 prototype. The colors were kept, but the materials and finishes were reinterpreted. This is what the Fiat 500 Fuori Serie received from Italian tuner Abarth.
