Standard specification includes:-

  • Dark tinted windows

  • Blue&Me
  • Reverse parking sensors
  • Smoking kit

The factory options are as below:-

Available colours are listed as Gara White (£400), Officina Red (£400), the new Record Grey metallic (£400), plus the two Bicolour options of Scorpion Black/Gara White (£900) and Pista Grey/Campovolo Grey (£900). Campovolo Grey is now the no-cost option.

There’s an incredibly complex array of choices of colours for hood colour (Black or Titanium Grey), rear spoiler colour (Matt Black, Titanium Grey, or body-coloured), and interior trims (Black Sports Cloth, or leather in Black, Grey, or Tan).  Most choices are only available with certain paint colours (Pista/Campovolo Grey Bi-colour cars can only have Titanium Grey hoods and spoilers, for instance), and these are best discussed with your dealer.

Grande Punto Abarth price increased

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

The UK price of the Grande Punto Abarth will be increased on 4th August 2009. The new on-the-road price will be £13,800, an increase of nearly £600.

As well as the price increase, there are a few revisions to the standard spec and the factory options.

The Interscope hi-fi system is no longer standard, nor is the 12v power socket in the boot, although both now become cost options at £250 and £35 respectively. The CD autochanger and the alternative 17″ alloy wheels appear to be missing from the options list, too, although we’re not sure if that means they’ve been deleted.

New options arrive in the shape of the front centre armrest that’s been available elsewhere in Europe since launch (£110), TPMS, the tyre pressure monitoring system (£250), and the Premium Pack which combines Climate Control and Interscope (£410).

The Sabelt seats also appear as a factory option, although in a move that I can only describe as misguided, they’ve been priced at the same level as in the accessory catalogue – an already eye-watering £2,250.

A new zero-cost option – 57X ‘Homologation Code’ – reduces the GPA’s emissions to 159 g/km (down from 162) when specified, and improves economy: 30.1 mpg urban (was 29.4), 54.3 mpg extra-urban (was 53.3), 42.2 mpg combined (was 40.9).

Option Code Price
Metallic paint (Black) 5CE £375
Sky Dome Electric sunroof 400 £725
Climate control 140 £270
Interscope Hi-fi system 4JF £250
Leather upholstery 732 £850
Front centre armrest (not with Sabelts) 132 £110
Abarth Corse Seats by Sabelt 4HV £2,250
Abarth Premium Pack (140+4JF) 5QH £410
Blue&Me Nav system 55Y £350
TPMS 365 £250
Red Stripes and mirrors (White cars only) 59A £160
12V Power point 823 £35
Smoker kit 989 £50
Homologation code 57X £0

500 Abarth UK prices confirmed

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

UK pricing for the new 500 Abarth has, apparently, been confirmed, although I’m still waiting to see a press release to this effect.  The base price of the car will be £13,600 on-the-road, and ordering for customer-spec cars officially opened this morning (21st January).

New 500 Abarth

Yes, that’s more than the bigger and more powerful Grande Punto Abarth.  To my mind, that indicates that the price of the GPA will soon be increased to match, probably citing fluctuations in the Euro exchange rate.

The launch date is currently pencilled in for Saturday 7th February, although again this hasn’t been officially announced.  My recommendation would still be to delay delivery until after March 1st for the new ’09’ plate, though.

Most dealers will have taken delivery of their demonstrators by now (two each – one normal production, one to potentially be converted to Esseesse spec).

While we’d been expecting the first 200 cars into the UK to all be the same spec (white, red leather, red stripe and mirror kit, upgraded 17″ alloy wheels, climate control), it seems that most customers have been keen on ordering their own spec. To counter that, a number of speculatively-built cars of varying colours and specs will be available in the first batch, from which customers can choose should they match their own preferences.

It was also previously understood that the prices of the various options would match those of the standard 500 – that obviously makes sense, since they’re the same components, assembled on the same production line.

However, the latest information does seem to have a few oddities:-

Code Option Price
140 Climate control £260
195 50/50 Split folding rear seat £150
732 Leather Sports Interior £800
400 Electric “Sky Dome” sunroof £550
59E Fixed glass sunroof £325
410 Auto-dimming rear view mirror £100
54K Preparation for Blue&Me Nav with telemetry £15
55Y Blue&Me Nav w/telemetry £240
55E Five-hole 17″ alloy wheels with 205/40R17 tyres £175
4AY Ten-spoke 17″ alloy wheels with 205/40R17 tyres £175
802 “Funk White” Pearl Paint finish £700
5CE “Crossover Black” Metallic Paint finish £375
5CJ “Pasadoble Red” Special Paint finish £250
5JQ “Campovola Grey” Special Paint finish £250
4RR Chrome finish door mirrors £70
5HP Red checked roof £135
5HQ White checked roof £135
5HR Black checked roof £135
5HS Red Scorpion bonnet decal £75
5HT White Scorpion bonnet decal £75
5HU Black Scorpion bonnet decal £75
5HI Red Abarth Stripe & Mirrors £160
5HM White Abarth Stripe & Mirrors £160
5HN Black Abarth Stripe & Mirrors £160
5JK Alloy gear knob £50

Those prices list climate control, the fixed glass roof, and the checked roof as higher than the standard 500 – not by much, admittedly.

Now, get ordering!
