Aston Martin and BMW are both in talks with Toyota to use the Japanese automakers iQ platform for a future minicar. According to AutoExpress, while Ferrari won’t be building a minicar anytime soon, it will be teaming up with Abarth to build a customized version of the Fiat 500.
Known as the 695 Tributo Ferrari, the special-edition Fiat 500 features Ferrari’s Scuderia Red paint job and is powered by 180-hp 1.4L turbocharged gasoline engine mated to a race-derived 6-speed transmission with steering-wheel mounted paddle-shifters.
Ferrari also upgraded the suspension and added red Brembo brake calipers for extra stopping power. The 695 Tributo Ferrari rides on 17-inch alloys wheels.
