Fiat pays tribute to Maserati with Abarth 695 Tributo

Fiat has revealed a limited edition tribute model to Maserati called the Abarth 695 Tributo Maserati.

Unlike the previous closed-top Ferrari tribute model, the Tributo Maserati is based on the convertible Fiat 500C.

It will be powered by the same 1.4-litre turbocharged engine as the Ferrari Tributo, which produces 132kW and 250Nm, and will be mated to a five-speed robotised manual gearbox with paddle shifters.

The limited run of 499 cars will debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6.
