Think you know your Fiat 500 Abarths? Test yourself and see..

Now pay attention folks, but not too much attention because we’re almost certain to have missed out one of the numerous 500 Abarth variants that have reached the market since Fiat’s pocket rocket was launched in 2008.

The Scorpion brand has really come of age since Fiat re-introduced it on the Grande Punto, but it’s the 500 Abarth that’s seen it flourish into so many special editions.

No doubt you’re as confused as we are, so here’s a handy list of the one’s we know about.

There’s a lot of them, isn’t there? Well as you can see there are two more variants including in the list, the 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione.

Both of these cars come as standard with the 157 bhp version of the turbocharged 1.4 T-Jet engine, which means they come with the Esseesse upgrade kit plus an enhanced standard specification. The Abarth 595’s will accelerate from 0-62mph sprint in 7.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 127mph.

Available exclusively to the 595 Tursimo is the Abarth special two tone paint available in Grigio Pista (Racing Grey) or Rosso Officina (Works Red). The detail continues on the outside with titanium grey finished detailing of the front and rear grilles.

The 595 Competizione features wrap around Sabelt seats, aluminium racing pedals, Abarth kick plates and an Abarth racing gear level.

The original Abarth 500 will remain as the entry-level model, though a new colour, and extra standard equipment has been added, while the on-the-road price has been reduced from £14,467 to £13,975. The Esseesse kit will continue to be available for the Abarth 500 and 500C as part of a dealer-fit upgrade.

All three versions will be available in manual form or with Abarth’s MTA (Manual Transmission Automated) semi-automatic gearbox for around £1,300 extra.

So there you have it, if anyone asks how many Fiat 500 Abarth’s there are, just say.. a lot, because no doubt we’ve missed a few.
