TURIN, Italy — Fiat's Abarth performance brand is unveiling two new versions of the Fiat 500, including the Abarth 595 50th Anniversary and the Abarth 695 Edizione Maserati in a new Record Grey shade, at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show.

The Abarth 595 50th Anniversary marks the introduction of the original 1963 Abarth 595.

Fiat describes the anniversary model as "the most powerful Abarth 595 ever." It is being sold in a limited run of 299 cars.

The 595 50th Anniversary features a 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine and an Abarth Competizione gearbox, as well as Brembo brakes, Record Monza dual-mode exhaust and 17-inch performance tires on 695 Magnesio Grey alloy wheels.

The anniversary model also sports special graphics, including historic Abarth logos, and a distinctive interior treatment featuring red leather seats with white inserts and red stitching, and a black leather steering wheel with red inserts.

Ariel Gavilan, a Chrysler spokesman said the Abarth 595 50th Anniversary will not be sold in the U.S.

The Abarth 695 Edizione Maserati in Record Grey will be offered in Europe in a limited run of 49 cars to celebrate the brand's creation by Carlo Abarth in 1949.

The Frankfurt showcar has a black soft top and glossy black Neptune 17-inch wheels.

The same 180-hp 1.4 Turbo T-Jet engine powers the Abarth 695 Maserati Edition, which is fitted with Koni shocks and Brembo brakes.

    Edmunds says: When will Fiat run out of special editions of the 500? Obviously pretty quickly when they are only making an insignificant 299 and 45 at a time, eh? .....and not for the USA ? Too silly face FIAT.The US market is way overdue for an automatic transmission version. After 20+ yrs. of driving a stick I am done with a stick .....and that is the main reason why I have not bought one of these. Pity they don't get it.
