Abarth continues to expand the current 500 range with new special editions. The last one was unveiled this week, during Geneva Motor Show. The car was named 695 Biposto and created to combine power with excellent road holding.
In fact, with a weight of just 997 kg and the 1.4 T-Jet engine, brought to 190 hp for the first time on a road-going car, the Abarth ‘695 biposto’ is the car with the best weight-to-power ratio (5.2 kg/hp) and the best acceleration in the category. The little monster can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.9 sec. also being capable of reaching a top speed of 143 mph.
To keep the car on the road, Abarth used ABS, ESP and TTC, disc and clutch self-locking differential and the racing-derived Brembo braking system with front floating, ventilated and perforated discs (305×28 mm) and four-piston one-piece calipers (4×38 mm).
Abarth 695 biposto details
The exterior features Matt Grey colour with titanium finishes for the bonnet, fuel cap, door handles and tailgate rear handle. The mirror and post covers are made of carbon.
Carbon provides an aesthetic link between exterior and interior, characterised by dashboard fascia inserts, front and rear panels, flat as in race cars, central tunnel cover and handbrake made from carbon fiber. The interior also features aluminium for the brake, clutch and accelerator pedals.
The racing spirit is emphasized by rear titanium roll bar, installed in place of the missing rear seat. The driver and front passenger receive Abarth Corsa by Sabelt seats with carbon shell, with upholstery comprising electro-welded Alcantara and titanium-coloured leather with brand-new colours and finishes for an Abarth. The steering wheel is marked by the same colours.
