Now, even if you have half a motoring related brain you will know that most car manufacturers are owned by another. VW dominates taking Bentley, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Bugatti, Lamborghini and half a dozen more. Fiat own a couple of note. Ever heard of Ferrari or Maserati? The Abarth arm of Fiat are launching a special Fiat 500 to pay tribute to Maserati.
Much like the Tributo Ferrari that went before it, the Tributo Maserati is little more than a well garnished Abarth 500. With 180BHP packed into its little 1.4 litre motor, it isn’t exactly sluggish and some of these “garnishings” do make it rather special. The retractable roof may be a feature found on the 500C but the paint and lavish upholstery is unique. Only 499 units of the Tributo Maserati will be produced.
