The Abarth 695 was originally intended as a Fiat 500-based tribute to Ferrari. Hence the 695 Tributo Ferrari moniker. But this one looks more like a salute to McLaren.

Created by Japanese tuner Office-K and unveiled this week at the Tokyo Auto Salon, this special Abarth has had its Scuderia Red paint hidden under a full chrome vinyl wrap – similar to the one we reported on back in May – and capped with a tricolore racing stripe up the nose.

Otherwise, it's mechanically the same as the stock 695, which means a 1.4-liter turbo four driving 180 little prancing stallions through a five-speed manual to the front pair of 17-inch wheels with their Brembo brakes. It also means an interior with a chunky steering wheel, Sabelt racing buckets and Abarth's signature turbo boost gauge. Check it the chrome job in the video after the jump and the images in the gallery above.

      Cue in massive, biased and uninformed Cinquecento hate here... ...As for me, this one (695 Abarth) looks cool, and extremely limited numbers means you shouldnt give a sh!t if it costs $50k, because it's all sold out. Haters Gonna Hate

      I would not like to be the one with a squeegee and the responsibility of applying this chrome film

      I love the Cinquecento...and I'd love this one, too! However, in the US they are priced too high for what they are and what they offer. If they were $2000 less across the board, paint me an owner!

      Can anyone guess which wealthy middle eastern city this will be shipping to after the show? *queue the Jeopardy theme*

        What, Qom? Fugly is fugly, and even the middle eastern guys aren't going for this one.

      So now it's chrome and fugly. At least if it were AWD it could be argued it was quick.

      Old hotrodder term: "If it don't go, chrome it." True in the fifties, true today.

      Is that a Mercedes-Benz E-class wagon that I see reflecting off of it?

      A shiny, polished turd is still, a turd.

      What that needs is a KITT-like red light on the front and you've got yourself a Cylon 500.

      As much as I like the 500, I'm not too keen on the chrome. Send it to South Korea and let them give it a proper matte paint job.
