Fiat has announced two new concept cars based on its diminutive 500 that will debut at the 2013 North American International Auto Show. The new concept cars are based on the company's high-performance Fiat 500 Abarth and the Fiat 500 Turbo.

The first concept is the Fiat 500 Abarth Tenebra, the matte gray car you see above. The vehicle has black chrome exterior accents, gloss black headlamps, black tail lamps, and black parking light bezels. The car also has Abarth scorpion logo that takes up the entire roof.

The vehicle also has an exclusive interior with the same colors found on the outside of the vehicle. The concept car also has a flat bottom steering wheel and matte finished carbon fiber on the instrument panel. The second concept is that the Fiat 500 Cattiva.

This is the car you see in the second photograph above with special copper paint on the outside. The vehicle has black chrome exterior accents and certain parts of the outside of the vehicle are painted black for contrast. The car has special performance seats and the interior is covered in black leather with contrasting silver stitching. Fiat will also be showing off other vehicle models at the auto show including its new all electric 500e.
