Abarth is set to put on quite a display at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show displaying the new Abarth 124 Spider, Abarth 695 Biposto and the Abarth 595 Competizione.
Taking centre stage for Abarth is the heir of the roadster that drove Fiat to its first European Rally Championship in the 1970’s – the Abarth 124 Spider.
The new Abarth 124 Spider is a fun, unconventional car that aims to become an icon of driving enjoyment just like its sibling before. Typically Abarth, the new 124 Spider is designed for thrills and performance and has all the qualities to satisfy even the pickiest of drivers. Features for the model include R-wheel drive, sophisticated suspensions and a four-cylinder 1.4 MultiAir Turbo engine with 170 HP which is available with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic Sequenziale Sportivo gearbox with paddleshift.
Its styling and proportions express pure energy at its best thanks to its streamlined profile, stretched bonnet and two seats placed intentionally near the rear axle so you can really “feel” the road. The inside doesn’t disappoint either reflecting the performance-orientated care Abarth are famous for as well as being packed with safety and comfort equipment.
Sitting next to the Spider is the Abarth 695 Biposto Record, the model created to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of two acceleration records set by Carlo Abarth at the Monza Race Track in 1965.
You certainly can’t miss the 695 Biposto Record thanks to its lively ‘Modena Yellow’ coat with ‘Tar Cold Grey’ trim and enamelled ‘695 Record’ badge on the side.
Under the bonnet the new model is fitted with a 1.4-litre T-jet engine taken up to 190 HP for ultimate performance. This results in the best acceleration in its category accelerating to 62mph in a swift 5.9 seconds.
This special series comes with a number of technical features taken from racing cars and includes titanium rear light roll bar, 18-inch alloy wheels, oversized Brembo braking system, Akrapovič exhaust, adjustable hydraulic dampers and mechanical self-locking differential.
Abarth will also feature the 595 Competizione, a model that has been engineered from the experience obtained by Abarth engineers on the race track.It is powered by a 1.4-litre T-Jet 180 HP Euro 6 engine with Garrett turbo-charger and is available with either a five-speed manual or an Abarth sequential robotised transmission.
