Fiat have launched a special edition Abarth 595 to celebrate the car’s 50th anniversary.

The original Abarth was unveiled at the Turin Motor Show in 1963, which propelled the original Fiat 500 into hot hatch territory.

And to mark that occasion, the Italian performance brand has launched a special edition model that pays tribute to the original Abarth 595.

It has been described as the most powerful 595 to date and made its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show, with just 299 units set to be made.

The reborn model dons the famous red and white livery of the original, including hand-painted racing stripes and logo on the bonnet.

The interior has also been designed to match that of its predecessor, which includes red leather seats with white trims, a red dashboard and a leather-wrapped steering wheel that bears the historical Abarth emblem.

In keeping with the go-fast spirit of company founder Karl Abarth, the 595 50th Anniversary car packs a 1.4-litre turbo-four engine with 180 horsepower and the paddle-shift Abarth Competizione six-speed single-clutch automatic transmission.

The Scorpion brand has retuned the suspension, fitted 305-millimeter Brembo discs and 17-inch wheels. There is also a sports exhaust system dubbed the Record Monza.

The fleet of new Abarth 595s will be available for order in Europe from September 15, 50 years to the day the original car was launched.
