The exterior also gets a Gloss Grigio roof-sized Abarth “Scorpion” logo. Inside the Tenebra concept gets front performance seats with racing-harness pass through that are finished in Nero leather with Grigio piping and accent stitching.

Carbon fiber with a matte finish also spans the width of the instrument panel, while Grigio accent stitching has been added to the shift knob and parking brake handle.
