Fiat 500 - Elegant Abarth 695 Maserati Special Edition
When Fiat manufacturers unveiled their newest addition, the Abarth 695 Maserati Edition of Fiat 500 they knew it would evoke emotions in car lovers everywhere and that is certainly the case. This model right on the heels of their former best seller, the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari has car enthusiasts excited and talking.
The Abarth 695 Maserati Edition of Fiat 500 has some spectacular things to offer. Produced in their Pontevecchio Bordeaux colored paint that screams luxury, the interior is a cascade of rich gray on its soft top that looks quite rich against the caramel beige interior. Xenon headlamps add to the mystic and the 17" alloy wheels no doubt will contribute to this car’s speed capabilities.
And Fiat did not get stingy in the mechanics of the Maserati Fiat 500 as it boasts 305mm four piston Brembo brakes and Koni shock absorbers which will come in handy on rought terrains.
For a little car there is no lack of ump though. The engine has a 1.4 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine that can go from 0-62 mph in a record seven seconds. The Abarth 695 Maserati Edition of Fiat 500 tops out at 140 mph and that is pretty impressive.
Car lovers alike will also be impressed with the eight speaker sound system especially for the warmer months, not to mention the chrome and silver interior décor that implies money, even if you’ve spent your last dime or new few years’ paychecks on this number.
And pay you will; many reviewers of the Maserati Fiat 500 have cited it as incredibly and absurdly expensive even for a great piece of machinery. In American dollars you can expect to pay roughly $52,700 for a base model; but there are reportedly only 499 being produced so if your intentions are to purchase one, now is the time.
Most reviews of this latest edition to the Fiat 500 family are citing it as a car for those with elitist hearts and thick wallets. Too much, too soon? Possibly say car experts particularly since so few models are being produced and the overall population won’t be able to afford them in a slumping economy.
Still, for those who can, the Maserati Fiat 500 has much better gripping, suspension and flair than previous models, not to mention it’s on a dime stopping capabilities. The Maserati Fiat 500 reviews on safety have polled very well due to this fact and that is a definitive advantage especially in smaller models of cars.
No doubt the rich leather vamped interior is attractive and Fiat has added some graphics and designs that are noteworthy, however reviewers are much too keen on the fact that with the price tag and limited editions, this car is not market to or even plausible for the average car buyer. Some initial reviews slate that this is a car to match one’s ego and that even the little extras will wean out quickly, leaving a very posh and expensive toy of the moment but lacking in interest sustainability.
The Abarth 695 Maserati Edition of Fiat 500 will not be distributed in the United States so getting your hands on the latest and greatest, while the 499 models are still even available could be challenging. For those who can’t afford one though, it is worthy of appreciation and coveting for sure.
