Fiat tuning arm Abarth has a treat for Fiat 500 fans at the Geneva Motor Show – the Abarth 595 Pista.

The racy compact is powered by a 117kW/230Nm turbocharged 1.4-litre T-jet engine (up from the 103kW/206Nm tune of the regular Australian-delivered 595) and will launch in both hatch and convertible body types.

It’s a looker with matt black 17-inch alloy wheels running 205/45 tyres, brake calipers in a choice of red, black or yellow, titanium finish door handles and you get to choose customised colours for the bumpers.

The sporty look goes further with the Abarth Record Monza exhaust system exiting via four tailpipes.

On the options list are LED headlights and, for the hatch, a ‘Sky Dome’ electric glass sunroof.

Inside is a choice of cloth or leather trims, a matt grey dashboard fascia, leather-wrapped steering wheel and a seven-inch colour TFT screen for the Uconnect infotainment screen with six speakers, DAB radio and TomTomLive satellite navigation.

Pista means track in Italian and the infotainment system includes the Abarth Telemetry system, so when embarking on a race circuit outing at a European venue you can upload detailed maps and receive real-time tips to cut your lap times, study your performance and get GPS traces.

The Abarth 595 Pista will also be joined on the Geneva show stand by the Abarth 695 Yamaha XSR Limited Edition hatch and convertible - capped at 659 units each, as well as the Yamaha XSR900 motorcycle, as part of the brand’s ongoing support as the official supplier to the Yamaha Factory racing team.

Abarth 695 Yamaha XSR Limited Edition models feature Koni rear suspension with Eibach springs, 17-inch matte black Supersport alloy wheels, and red brake calipers clamping perforated discs with the option to upgrade to Koni Frequency Selective Damping, Brembo brakes, and a higher-output 132kW tune for the 1.4-litre engine, up from the standard 121kW tune.
