If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then surely value has come to the same. Take the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari, for example. It's based on the Fiat 500, one of the most affordable, yet stylish cars on the market.
The Tributo Ferrari edition was unveiled almost a year ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show. It features a powerful 180-horsepower 1.4-liter 16-valve turbocharged four-cylinder engine, sport suspension, performance wheels, upgraded brakes and a special paint scheme inspired by the Ferrari 430 Scuderia.
The special edition has just gone on sale in the UK, where it is commanding a hefty £29,600 – nearly $47,000 in equivalent US Dollars. That's a big chunk of cash for a car that, in base form, doesn't cost half that much. But then, with only 152 right-hand drive models being shipped to the UK, exclusivity does have its price.
