Fiat will use this week’s Concorso Italiano, one of the lead-up events for the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance
, to present the new 500 Cattiva. The latest special edition is based on the concept of the same name
, unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and should be on sale in the fourth quarter of the year.
The vehicle can be ordered in either 500 Sport
or 500 Turbo
trim and has been developed in order to provide a tuned look but with factory warranty assurance. The special touches include blacked-out lights, unique 16-inch alloy wheels, a glossy black roof and a subtle rear spoiler. Exterior colors include red, copper (featured above), black, silver, granite crystal, white and Luce Blue (available on 500 Sport only).
The interior hasn’t been forgotten, either. Here, you’ll find silver accent stitching for the seats, available leather trim, a matte finish for the instrument panel, and a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
The 500 Cattiva in 500 Sport trim comes with a 1.4-liter MultiAir engine with 101 horsepower and an available six-speed automatic. Opting for the 500 Cattiva in 500 Turbo trim nets you a turbocharged version of the 1.4-liter MultiAir engine with 135 horsepower on tap. This model also gets a five-speed manual and uprated brakes.
Pricing for the 500 Cattiva in 500 Sport trim starts at $19,150, including an $800 destination charge, while pricing for the 500 Cattiva in 500 Turbo starts at $21,150, including the same $800 destination charge._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
