I want. Bad.

Mind you, the 695 Tributo Ferrai should scoot along nicely for a subcompact, with its turbocharged, 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at "over 180 hp." A dual-mode, variable-back pressure exhaust system should provide some soundtrack variation as you're revving the dickens out of it. A automated manual transmission with paddle shifters is standard; Fiat doesn't specific the clutch count so we'd guess it's a single-clutch gearbox. The wheels and tires are 17s.

A Brembo brake system is fitted, and Fiat says the front rotors are 11.2 inches in diameter with 4-piston fixed calipers

What does the OP mean my "Ferrari tribute". It looks like a 500 Abarth. I agree it would be most welcome in my garage, but what does it have to do with Ferrari?

Like Ferrari baseball caps and Ferrari polo shirts, the only thing it has in common with a Ferrari is you will look like an underendowed midlife-crisis-in-motion in it

I'd have a stock 500 Abarth in a heartbeat (especially in that shiny-primer colour they do) but it's a big no-thanks to that one! In fact, the only person/Ferrari combination that doesn't look awful is Tom Selleck in a 308GTS, and that was the 80's

I'd have a Ferrari too, but I wouldn't want to be seen in it

Fiat calls it the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari. Translated = Ferrari tribute.
Googling it will bring up such nuggets as
Quote:
Fiat claims this car was developed in cooperation with Ferrari (though it carries the Abarth tuner badge). The Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari is supposed to offer Ferrari customers "a small but exciting car" and "practical urban mobility."
