The Abarth 695 was originally intended as a Fiat 500-based tribute to Ferrari. Hence the 695 Tributo Ferrari moniker. But this one looks more like a salute to McLaren.

Created by Japanese tuner Office-K and unveiled this week at the Tokyo Auto Salon, this special Abarth has had its Scuderia Red paint hidden under a full chrome vinyl wrap - similar to the one we reported on back in May - and capped with a tricolore racing stripe up the nose.

Otherwise, it's mechanically the same as the stock 695, which means a 1.4-liter turbo four driving 180 little prancing stallions through a five-speed manual to the front pair of 17-inch wheels with their Brembo brakes. It also means an interior with a chunky steering wheel, Sabelt racing buckets and Abarth's signature turbo boost gauge. Check it the chrome job in the video after the jump and the images in the gallery above.Continue reading Abarth 695 shines in Tokyo with full chrome job [w/video]

it looked good on that R8 that WCC did... this thing is funny. The rims look dirty because the rest of the car is so shiny. :fail:
Didnt know vinyl wrap came in chrome. I might have to do my car. haha.

I agree. The car should not be more chrome than the wheels. It just doesnt work.
hmm a chrome evoX would be something different.
