(1) Drive responsibly. Always obey the rules of the road. (2) No system, no matter how sophisticated, can repeal the laws of physics or overcome careless driving actions. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice, and other conditions can affect. When the ESC warning lamp
flashes, the driver needs to use less throttle and adapt speed and driving behaviour to prevailing road conditions. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Always wear your seat belt. (3) Always use BLUE&ME in a safe manner, with eyes on the road and hands on the wheel at all times.

The Abarth code
It sprung from the piercing vision of Karl Abarth almost a century ago: go faster,
win more. It served as the simplest cornerstone upon which a well-crafted empire
of finely tuned performance was built. You start with the best ingredients and you
season them with the rarest blend of handed-down knowledge until you have a
recipe that is all-but unstoppable. Engines. Brakes. Purposeful design. Statements
stitched in leather. Details that project the difference but are always tailored
straight to the heart of pure performance. On racetracks. On highways.(1) And now,
on continents. This is the vision of Mr. Abarth. It is the Abarth Code.
1950-60s – Abarth broke the 5,000 km, 10,000 km, 5,000 miles, 48- and 72-hour records driving
the FIAT® Abarth 750. The FIAT 500 Abarth covered a distance of 18,186 km at an average speed
of 108 km/h, breaking six international records and strengthening his relationship with FIAT.
The Sixties were a golden age for the Scorpion as the Abarth 850TC won the 1962 World
Championship race at Circuito del Garda and, in 1965 alone, Abarth racers won almost 900 victories.
1920-50s – Karl Abarth built his first motorcycle to bear the Abarth name following a decade of racing motorcycles.
The first car he built, a revolutionary new single-seater named the Cisitalia D46, placed first in the 1946 Brezzi Cup in Turin.
In 1949 he created Abarth & C., whose mission was “the production of vehicles and complementary equipment for sports
and racing cars.” In its first year, the Abarth 204 A Roadster won the Italian 1100 Championship and the Formula 2 title.
Abarth then developed a new exhaust system and the matte-black product became an instant success, attracting
manufacturers like Alfa Romeo, Ferrari,® and Maserati.®
1970-80s – Abarth merged with FIAT
and success continued in the world
championships of 1973, ’74 and ’75. This
legacy includes 10 world records, 133
international records, and over 10,000 track
victories. The Abarth name continued
into the 1980s with the success of the
FIAT Strada Abarth 130TC.

EUropean Track performance
with state-of-the-art amenities to
DELIVER Road-Course capability
with everyday refinement.
The FIAT® 500 Abarth sets the tone from the ground on up. Its aero­
dynamic styling reflects countless hours of wind tunnel sculpting and
amplifies the legendary lines from any angle. Chrome door handles and
optional contrasting side graphics add to the brazen look and let the
most casual passersby know that this car means business. Opt for the
optional lightweight 17 x 7-inch forged-aluminum wheels with 3-Season
Pirelli® ultra high-performance tires and the 500 Abarth’s aerodynamic
attitude sits on an even bolder stance.
It is an emblem that defies ornamentation, and it adorns every side
of the FIAT 500 Abarth. Born of Mr. Abarth’s astrological sign, the
Abarth Scorpion now serves to exemplify the tenacity of the creature
it emblazons. The centre hubs’ scorpions hint at the potency of the
unique front brake rotors and calipers and semimetallic brake pads
that have capable claws all their own.

The diminutive low sprawl
jockeys for placement
but it’s not just the
characteristic stance
and true projector fog
lamps that make up
the extroverted Abarth
personality. Elements like
dual-exhaust tips and
elongated, functional front
and rear fascias, large
rear-hatch spoiler, and
aerodynamic design all work
to improve drag and aero
balance at high speeds,(1)
while complementing the
Abarth’s stand apart style.

Behind the unique Rosso Abarth engine cover and Abarth designed front fascia with twin forced-air intercooler inlets lies a surprising pull for power, equipping this lightweight and compact
street predator with a reactive yet refined pace. The FIAT® 500 Abarth has the energy to deliver the work efficiently with its 1.4L 16V turbocharged 160-horsepower MultiAir
engine. It produces 170 lb-ft of torque while reducing pollutant emissions with MultiAir. This feature allows a 10% fuel economy improvement over conventional engines.
The Torque Transfer Control (TTC) system distributes engine torque between the front wheels during aggressive cornering(1) to minimize understeer and maximize traction. The
standard Abarth tuned 3-mode Electronic Stability Control (ESC)(2) and 4-wheel Antilock Braking System (ABS) allow adaptability to changing driving conditions. Respecting
the Abarth tradition in full, the exterior is not a mere exercise in aesthetics, but strives to enhance the performance. Proof of this approach is found in the front fascia with
twin intercooler ducts and motorsports-inspired splitter, the rear-hatch spoiler and the rear diffuser, all adding downforce while minimizing drag.

Scorpion. The Bose® premium high-performance audio system, leather-wrapped park brake handle
and shift knob provide some additional inside attitude.
An Abarth tuned powertrain control module (PCM) integrates all of the MultiAir turbo engine’s control
functions. The Sport button provides distinct engine and steering calibrations to maximize horsepower,
torque and responsiveness in Sport mode, while optimizing fuel economy and delivering a relaxed,
economical drive in Normal mode.

High-back performance bucket seats in available leatherfaced or high-grip cloth are constructed with unique Rosso
stitching and incorporate a motorsports-inspired racing
harness pass-through. Firm side bolsters keep the driver in
place and give feedback during spirited driving,(1) without
sacrificing long-haul comfort. The EZ-Entry pull strap
design enhances rear-seat entry and exit.
The instrument cluster is illuminated with an easy-on-the-eyes
liquid crystal display (LCD) and Electronic Vehicle Information
Centre (EVIC). The lighting and location of these features give
the driver heightened road and track confidence while functional
backlighting enhances read-out visibility.
