Meet the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari, a 29,600 special-edition Fiat 500.

The Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari comes with a 178bhp 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which can propel it from 0-62mph in seven seconds and on to a top speed of 140mph.

However, in comparison, the 'standard' 138bhp Esseesse version goes from 0-62mph in 7.4 seconds and has a top speed of 131mph and costs almost 13,000 less.

The special-edition Fiat is fitted with a semi-automatic gearbox, with paddles mounted behind the steering wheel. There is also a Sport button on the dashboard that, when activated, quickens gearchanges and makes the steering more responsive.

Other sporting touches include carbonfibre door mirrors, grey alloy wheels and front air intakes.

Only 152 cars will be available to UK customers, and can be ordered through Fiat's 17 Abarth dealerships.
