One of the bright stars of the 1963 Turin Motor Show was the Abarth 595, a pocket rocket based on the old Fiat 500. Fifty years later, at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show this month, Abarth is resurrecting the 595, derived of course from the modern 500. The Abarth 595 50th Anniversary Edition will be limited to a very exclusive 299 units.

The livery of the 595 will feature the original color, the original Abarth logos, and the original \"Fiat Abarth 595\" graphics, \"all handmade by the best customization artists at Officine Abarth in Turin.\"

The car is powered by a 180hp 1.4-liter T-Jet engine, which is mated to an \"Abarth Competizione\" gearbox. The wheels are 17-inch alloys with 695 Magnesio Gray design embellished by a red liner. New xenon headlights also replace the standard halogen headlamps.

Inside, the red leather sports seats have white inserts and red stitching, and the historical logo can be found on the black leather steering wheel and the brake pedal.

Looks good, right?
