Fiat has unveiled two new limited edition versions of its 500 Abarth 595 at the Frankfurt motor show today.

Special edition versions of the range-topping 500 Abarth is being shown in two trims. The first celebrates 50 years since the original Abarth 595 went on sale. The 50th Anniversary model is limited to 299 units and features retro-styled badging. Fiat says the model will be available to order on 15 September, exactly 50 years after the presentation of the first 595.

The second limited run model is a version of the Abarth 695 Maserati Edition finished in 'Record Grey' paint. Just 49 will be built, celebrating the founding of the Abarth brand in 1949.

Both models feature a 180bhp version of Fiat’s 1.4-litre T-Jet engine and are mated to the Abarth Competizione automatic manual gearbox.

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
