Abarth chief Marco Magnanini has told Autocar there will be no bespoke model for the marque in the medium term.

2010's Abarth 'Speedster' sketch had been said to preview roadster and coupé derivatives of the Fiat 500.

Magnanini put thoughts of an Abarth Panda or 500L to rest, too (calling the latter "inconsistent with the brand"), leaving Abarth to focus on its existing 500, 500C and Punto models.

Abarth is also unlikely to add more power or supplement its 1.4 turbos with larger Fiat Group powertrains like Alfa Romeo's 1750 TBi: "We like to have the perfect ratio between power and weight," said Magnanini.

The Abarth 500 and Punto ranges currently peak at 178bhp.
