Abarth has launched an optional set of of Sabelt sports seats for the Grande Punto and 500.

Called “Abarth Corse by Sabelt”, the seats are available in two different styles, Frau black leather with black Alcantara or black “F1-style” fabric, both with the Abarth name and logo in the headrest.

Abarth says the seats are more supportive during hard cornering and have slits in the backrest where multi-point harnesses can be fitted.

The seats don’t come cheap, with the leather versions costing £2250 per pair, and £1760 for the fabric seats.

Currently available as an option to the Grande Punto Abarth, the seats will be available on the 500 Abarth later this year.

“The interior of an Abarth is already a great place to be, but these fantastic new seats add a further dimension,” says Ivan Gibson, head of Abarth in the UK.

“But it’s not just about looks – the Abarth Corse by Sabelt is a true sports seat which will be appreciated by Abarth drivers and their passengers alike.”
