This is the latest new version to join the well-established Abarth line-up. The sports brand continues to find new fans in the form of enthusiast drivers wishing to express themselves through their choice of car.

In keeping with Abarth’s philosophy of ‘Making the Ordinary Extraordinary’, Abarth has taken the convertible model and added the option of a five speed manual transmission, for those drivers who do not wish to take advantage of the ‘Competizione’ box.

Along with a stylish electric hood with glass rear window, and third brake light incorporated into the spoiler, the car receives, as standard, a host of other equipment.

This includes seven airbags, xenon headlights, TTC (torque transfer control), parking sensors, Blue&Me hands-free telecommunications system, leather steering wheel and alloy wheels. A full range of options includes automatic climate control, leather sports interior, bi-colour paint, red brake callipers and coloured Abarth side stripes and mirrors.

Proof that the 500C is a true Abarth comes in the form of its 135bhp 1.4 16v Turbo T-Jet engine, which provides the convertible with a top speed of 128mph (206kph) and a 0-62mph (0-100kph) time of 7.9 seconds. But the frugal unit returns 43.5mpg (18.4 kpl) fuel economy on the combined cycle and has a CO2 figure of 155 g/km.

The car features Dualdrive electrically assisted power steering with ‘Sport Mode’ while stopping is courtesy of front (ventilated) and rear disc brakes.
