Due to be presented at Paris, by the end of September, a new refined version of the Fiat 500, by Abarth, is ready for the show. Reportedly named the Abarth 695 Fuori Serie, it comes with impressive customization options, with Abarth’s engineers, designers and mechanics standing by the side of the customer, deciding even on the smallest of details.

The current model will reportedly be powered by a 4-cylinder 1.4-liter engine which delivers 180 HP (132 kW) at 5,500 RPM, reaching a peak torque of 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) in sport mode. The package is tied to an Abarth Competizione electronically operated manual gearbox, with controls mounted on the steering wheel. The results will be a maximum speed of 225 km/h (140 mph) and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just under 7 seconds.

Besides these numbers, also notable are the facts that the Fuori Serie features a MacPherson independent front suspension and torsion beam rear suspension, while the braking system bears the signature of Brembo. In addition, it runs on a set of 17 inch alloy rims wrapped in 205/40 R17 rubbers.
