Ferrari’s Alonso and Massa get a new Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari

Ferrari's Alonso and Massa get a new Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari

Right before the start of the Formula 1 Italian GP, held at the Monza circuit, Fiat’s performance division, Abarth, decided to award the drivers of the Ferrari F1 team with something a bit more special than a Maserati GranCabrio, for instance.

Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa both got a new Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari model.

While you may scoff at the thought of them driving a modified Fiat 500 when they’re more used with the monster F1 machines, bear in mind that the 695 has an upgraded 1.4-liter turbocharged engine, capable of 180 HP. The cars are also decorated, as you can see, in Scuderia Red with Racing grey stripes.

If you’d like a go in such a model, be prepared to pay around $47,000, as the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari wants to live up to its name and the exclusivity it demands.
