Fiat 500 Abarth SpeedGrey par Neubauer – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Fiat 500 Abarth is a pretty sweet little retro rocket all on its own, but the Italian automaker's performance division hasn't stopped churning out a seemingly endless stream of special editions, from the Opening Edition to the 695 Tributo Ferrari. We can now add to that list the 500 Abarth SpeedGrey by Neubauer.

Unlike the Competizione edition made specially for the Dutch market, the SpeedGrey is actually an undertaking of Neubauer, the official Abarth distributor for France. Starting with the up-rated EsseEsse spec, the Neubauer edition gets a special Monza exhaust system for an extra five horses (boosting output up to 165), a pair of Sabelt bucket seats, tinted windows, Blue&Me navigation system and special Maserati gray paint job. Looks pretty sweet, but Neubauer will only be making 10 examples exclusively for the French market, so we'll just have to bide our time until the stock hot hatch arrives Stateside.

      Wonderful but I still don't understand why the US 500 is slated for 2010 yet the Abarth won't make it until 2012. All models are already being sold in Europe-why the long gap between the two versions?

        Hmmm, Mini sells more Cooper S here than regular Coopers. Seems to me the Abarth demand will be quite high compared to the regular 500.

      love love love that color and trim. as 'cute and bubbly' as the 500 looks in bright colors, it's so much more grown-up looking and sophisticated with this gray finish. beautiful!

        Agreed. This 500 is awesome!
