Designed to enhance the driving experience, this shifter will shorten the throw on your FIAT 500 Abarth and change the way you feel about shifting. Every shift will feel more precise, and provide the positive feedback you were looking for when you bought a manual. It offers a 26% reduction in throw over the stock shifter which means quicker shifts, and more time sending power to the ground. Each kit is made in the USA from the highest quality materials we can find.

A Complete Package

Included with the shifter is our 3-piece weighted shift knob. To maximize results, we wanted to be sure we addressed the entire shifting mechanism between your hand and the shifter linkage. The knob has an acetal outer sleeve to save your hand from extreme climates, and a heavy stainless steel core to help smooth out your shifts.


This shifter was designed to fit the Fiat 500 Abarth and Turbo models. If you drive a Pop, Sport, or Lounge, check out our other model here.

Only The Best Will Do

Over the last decade, CravenSpeed has produced several short shifter kits for a wide range of vehicles. With our proven experience, we are able to choose only the highest quality, best performing materials for any of our products, and this shifter is no exception. Once again we chose stainless steel for the main shaft, and aluminum for the shifter arm, and pivot ball


The beauty of this shifter is that just about anyone can install it with simple tools. We have a complete set of instructions, and the entire job can be done without going under the car.

    You get what you pay for... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2018

    I made the mistake of using an aftermarket adapter to create a "short shift" in order to save a few dollars. The difference between stock components with adapter and the Cravenspeed full kit is astonishing. Shifts are noticeably smoother, more concise and direct. With over 5K in mods to my Abarth, I'm now going back and fixing my early errors. Do it right the first time. Install this and you will not be disappointed. Incidentally, add the shifter retaining clip to your order. Even if you don't destroy the stock piece getting it out the new retaining clip is worth the price for the solid feel.
