When Abarth paid tribute to the Ferrari legacy with the 695 Tributo Ferrari we were awestruck. While we thought we are better prepared this time around, but we were definitely wrong. The latest treat from Abarth is the 695 Tributo Maserati a tribute to the legendary Maserati. All set to debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2012, this beauty does manage to live up to the brand it pays tribute to.
Designed and built in collaboration with Maserati, the 695 Tributo epitomizes “sheer elegance united to the comfort of a ‘GranTurismo’.” With a 1.4-liter T-Jet 16-valve engine churning 180 horsepower, electrically-operated Abarth Competizione gearbox with paddle shifters, 305-mm Brembo brakes, 17-alloy wheels from Maserati, and a dual-mode Record Monza exhaust, this car is truly a beauty.
Dressed with Maserati’s three layer paint—Pontevecchio Bordeaux and an electric soft-top in grey fabric, this car is indeed a showstopper. The interiors are decked in sand beige Poltrona Frau leather, the cabin is matte finished along with Jaeger-produced instruments.
As expected, this beauty is a limited edition creation restricted to 499 examples only.
