Fiat released the special edition 500 based Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari in right hand drive recently, confirming that the UK market will get 152 units of the 430 Scuderia inspired £29,600 baby hatch.
The Abarth 695 comes with a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine with 180 hp and 250 Nm, good for 0 to 100km/h in just 7 seconds and a top speed of 225 km/h. Fuel consumption is 5.4L/100 km so you can have your cake and eat it. The engine is mated to an electro-hydraulic Abarth Competizione transmission. Other goodies include sports tuned suspension and 284 mm multi-section discs with fixed four-piston calipers by Brembo. There’s a Sport button on the dash which activates a more racy setting for the gearbox, ECU and steering.
The most eye catching thing is the Scuderia Red paint scheme with white racing stripes along with carbon fibre caps, 17 inch Corsa Grey wheels covered in high performance tyres, additional air inlets and “Record Monza” variable back-pressure “dual mode” exhaust which comes to life at 3,000 rpm.
The yummy cabin features sports seats finished in black leather with the shell and seat base in carbon fibre, while the instrument panels feature Jaeger craftsmanship inspired by Ferrari. The steering gets red leather inserts and a tri-colour hub on which the gearshift paddles are mounted. The floors are given aluminium-like carpets along with Abarth emblazoned aluminium pedals.
This is one desirable small car that’s bound to be a collectible. Enjoy the high res pictures after the jump.
