Abarth 500 Bi-Colore Edition UK Version

We all know Abarth is the official tuner of Fiat. The new thing is that they have just finished developing the Abarth 500 Bi-Colore Edition in U.K. The edition will be a limited one, with only 50 units to be manufactured. Each unit will be priced from £15,990 OTR.

The Abarth 500 Bi-Colore Edition is distinguished by a Scorpione two-tone Black over Record Grey paint. The small hatchback is equipped with a set of ten-spoke 17-inch diamond-look alloy wheels. The vehicle also gets fog lights and a satin steel finish on the dual exhaust tips while Dualdrive electric power steering comes as standard equipment. On the inside the car features privacy glass, Abarth sports seats with natural leather trim, climate control system and a Blue&Me handsfree system as well as CD & MP3 audio system with six speakers.

The Abarth 500 Bi-Colore Edition is powered by the same four-cylinder, 1.4-liter turbocharged 16-valve gasoline engine which generates 135 bhp (101 kW) and 206 Nm (152 lb-ft) sent to the wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. It does the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 7.9 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 127 mph (204 km/h) and can return 47.1 mpg UK (39.2 mpg US or 6 liters / 100 km) in the combined cycle.
