Fiat revealed its long-awaited 500 Abarth at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. AutoCar is now reporting that Abarth is creating a new version of the speedy Fiat 500.

Word on the street is that Abarth and Fiat are working on a convertible version of the minicar that could go on sale as early as 2009. The report also said that Fiat is also considering two Abarth-only models that will follow the Fiat 500 Abarth Convertible.

Power for the convertible is expected to come from the same 1.4L 16v turbo engine, the 500 Abarth produces 135 horsepower with a peak torque of 151 lb-ft of torque.
