Fiat has revealed its new sporty Abarth Esseesse version of the 500C convertible Mini-fighter in 2011. These are designed to improve performance, handling and safety without having to sacrifice the car’s low emissions and fuel consumption.

New 500C has a 1.4 16v Turbo T-Jet engine that delivers a maximum of 160 HP and 230 NM of torque. Of course, due to the added weight of the convertible, the 500C completes the 0-60 mph sprint in 7.6 seconds which is 0.2 seconds slower than the 500. Top speed also takes a small hit at 130mph compared to the 131mph top speed of the 500.

New 500C esseessefeatures power increases – without a reduction in the fuel economy, and also chassis and styling changes. These comes with an elegant Campovolo grey and Pista grey two-tone livery with a white chromatic liner, an element that divides and at the same time combines the two ‘souls’ of the car. It is exhibited with an original Record Monza exhaust silencer that enhances the engine sound above 4000 rpm and, as on the Punto Evo, with an Abarth Blue&MeTM MAP satellite navigation system with telemetrics.
