Romeo Ferraris has introduced their first homologated production vehicle called the Cinquone, and it’s basically a Fiat – which is not always a good thing. Based on the Fiat 500 Abarth, the Cinquone features a wide body-kit that includes a new hood, modified bumpers and revised side skirts. The model also has center-mounted exhaust and custom 18-inch alloys. Customers may also opt out for a carbon fiber package that adds a variety of carbon fiber components including mirror caps, pillar covers and a rear spoiler.

The Leggero package includes a carbon fiber hood and tailgate; as a result, the car weighs in at just 970 kg (2,138 lbs). Inside the cabin there are some changes, although limited; however, Romeo Ferraris offers “countless options to satisfy every client request.” Key highlights include Recaro sports seats, carbon fiber trim, a roll bar and leather or Alcantara upholstery.

The entry-level Cinquone has a 1.4-liter T-Jet engine, developing 160 PS (117 kW) and 230 Nm (169 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a five-speed manual transmission and enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.4 seconds before reaching a top speed of 211 km/h (131 mph). The Cinquone S offers buyers an upgraded engine, 210 PS (154 kW) and 310 Nm (228 lb-ft) of torque. 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 232 km/h (144 mph). Last but not least, the Cinquone Corsa boasts 248 PS (182 kW) and 330 Nm (243 lb-ft) of torque. 0 to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 240 km/h (149 mph).

This special vehiclewill cost you anywhere from €47,762 for the entry-level hatchback to €69,220 for the Cinquone Corsa Cabrio.
