The ultimate Fiat 500, the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari has sold out before even arriving on the shores of Australia and New Zealand! Every last of the 45 undersized units sold out at $70k a pop! Many say that this is a large price tag for such a tiny exotic car.

I think it ever so slightly resembles the Aston Martin Cygnet. It was created as a tribute to the historic performance links forged between Ferrari and Abarth, showin’ a little love, if you will.

Do not let the size fool you, as this little pocket-rocket zings from 0-60 in under 7 seconds, topping out around 140 miles per hour. Although I am stunned at how fast the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari can haul, remember that a Bugatti can get up to around 254 miles per hour.
The Abarth 695 is fitted with a fitting 1.4-liter Turbo T-Jet 16v. The engine is paired with a specialized MTA (manual transmission automated) electromechanical gearbox boasting racing-inspired wheel controls that reduce shift times. You know, so you can challenge your neighbor to a drag race on your next trip to the grocery or lead the kids to believe their Lego toys have transformed into reality.

Overall, this luxury car does include a lot of very cool features, power, and is dead-on in the size department to compete with luxury hybrid cars and the seemingly shrinking trend of some exotic brands.
