Fiat 500 byAbarth Package

Fiat 500 byAbarth

The new Fiat 500 TwinAir "byAbarth" package was recently displayed at this years Bologna Auto Show and drew a lot of attention. In addition to the usual TwinAir trim that consists of special burnished "anthracite" trim, a "piano black" (optional) roof and the Total Black environment with sports seats and the burnished dashboard fascia, the “byAbarth” customisation kit includes “Total Black” 16” alloy wheels with unique Abarth hub caps, side skirts, rear spoiler, racing graphics on the hood and a sport pedal kit.

The new “byAbarth Pack” will be offered as an option combined with the Pasodoble Red and Crossover Black exterior colors.

Fiat's TwinAir engine is the "International Engine of the Year 2011", and features spritely performance along with low fuel consumption along with the lowest emissions in the world for a petrol engine.

The Fiat 500 "byAbarth" package is currently only available in Europe. Will the US see a similar option? We'll see...

I think the powers that be should have waited until the 105 bhp version arrives before applying the Abarth name to a TwinAir. And then it would need rear discs and a diet as well. Over the last twenty years there have been cars that were unworthy to wear the Abarth badge, mostly because that was all that was done.
