THE NEW ABARTH 695 70th ANNIVERSARIO LAUNCHES AT 2019 ABARTH DAY

THE NEW ABARTH 695 70th ANNIVERSARIO LAUNCHES AT 2019 ABARTH DAY

The new Abarth 695 70th Anniversario special edition was launched recently in Milan to celebrate 70 years since Abarth & C. was founded by Carlo Abarth (1908 - 1979).  Only 1,949 units are being produced and the new limited edition was displayed for the first time at the 2019 Abarth Day, the largest European gathering of Abarth enthusiasts, hosted in the Milan Innovation District (MIND).

The new Abarth 695 70th Anniversario is equipped with the new “Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile” to deliver improved grip and stability at high speeds and increases overall performance. The spoiler is manually adjustable, just like in races of old where it was not uncommon to see the pit mechanics adjust the spoiler to allow the driver to change the set-up of the car according to the track. It can be adjusted in 12 different positions between zero and 60 degrees. In the maximum setting, the spoiler increases the aerodynamic load by up to 42kg at a speed of 124mph. This delivers improved vehicle dynamics and stability at high speeds.

The new “Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile" is a tribute to the founder's performance focus, which went beyond the quest for pure power, top speed and acceleration, focusing on the search and development of innovative technical solutions. It is precisely this continuous research that made him one of the pioneers and visionaries in the field of tuning.

The new Abarth 695 70th Anniversario was tested in the full-scale wind tunnel located in Orbassano, south of Turin, where Abarth tests all its vehicles. The facility was built in the seventies and has been continually updated to implement the latest technologies. This is the only wind tunnel in Italy, capable of allowing full-scale testing and high air speeds of up to 130mph.

Outside, the new Abarth 695 70th Anniversario features some iconic style cues from the past and present, including the new Monza 1958 green livery, a tribute to the colour of the first 500 Abarth that set six international records at Monza. Campovolo grey details, including the “Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile”, body kit, front and rear DAMs and mirror caps, scorpion decals on the bonnet and the chequered sticker on the roof complete the look.

The 17-inch SuperSport alloy wheels and red Brembo brake calipers are also standard. The Brembo brakes are fitted with four-piston aluminium calipers and 305mm discs at the front and 240mm discs at the rear, both self-ventilated. The Record Monza exhaust, limited slip differential and Xenon headlights all feature as standard.

Five exterior colours are available, including the exclusive new Monza 1958 green, Circuit Grey, Gara White, Scorpione Black and Podium Blue. The glorious racing past of the brand is also referenced by the badges on the body in heritage font, featuring the vintage Scorpion emblem.

Inside, the Abarth 695 70th Anniversario features exclusive "Sabelt Tricolore" seats, developed specifically for this special edition.  Each of the 1,949 units will have a numbered plaque, making the 695 70th Anniversario an authentic collectable.

The new 695 70th Anniversario is equipped with the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine which delivers 180hp and 250Nm of torque at 3,000rpm, with a top speed of 139mph (with spoiler set to zero degree position) while accelerating from zero to 62mph in just 6.7 seconds.

Uconnect™ 7-inch HD system with the DAB digital radio and navigation system, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Google Android AutoTM, are standard on the 695. The infotainment system has a high-definition screen and Abarth Telemetry, an integrated application created to measure performance. Completing the standard equipment are automatic climate control, daytime running lights, LED fog lights and specific mats.

The new Abarth 695 70th Anniversario is available to order now priced from £29,695 OTR. See our latest offer here
