Details on Assetto Corse 500 Abarth

Second unit to be unveiled by Abarth on the Auto Show in Paris will be the Assetto Corse 500 Abarth. The car will make the official presentation on non-European markets, this by the end of 2008, first of all on Japan which is awaiting keenly the arrival of the Scorpion.

Paris is quite the ideal opportunity of really finding out all about the Abarth preparation world which is proving already to be an amazing hit with “Assetto” and the “esseesse” kit wraps available for Grande Punto Abarth 155 CV 1.4 Turbo T-Jet. Over six hundred kits were sold in only a few months.

The network of distribution, steadily growing, unique on its class, has been key factor on reaching these important results. The target in Europe has been met, with 1 hundred dealers operating now in Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Greece, Poland and Spain. There are one hundred official converters plus around 2 hundred workshops. Abarth by year-end will be making its grand début in the markets outside Europe, in Japan mainly.
