Back in 1964, the Fiat Abarth 695 made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The car introduced then had a 700 CC engine good enough for 30 hp of max output and a top speed of 130 km/h. Now, after nearly 50 years, Abarth is back to the Geneva Motor Show and has unveiled the all new Fiat Abarth 695. The car is named Abarth 695 Biposto and is claimed to be the best one yet.
The 695 biposto is powered by a 1.4 liter T-Jet engine which produces a max of 190 hp. That impressive amount of power and a low weight of 997 kg imparts the car with a power-to-weight ratio of 5.2 kg/hp and 0 to 62 mph acceleration time of 5.9 seconds which happens to be best in its category. The Abarth 695 biposto can reach a top speed of 143 mph.
The 695 biposto is also the first street legal vehicle to come with an H-pattern gearbox featuring dog rings. The new transmission is offered as an alternative to the previous 5-speed manual unit and would be loved by expert drivers as the gear changes are very rapid.
The Abarth 695 biposto is a complete performance oriented machine and features a host of race-inspired parts. The list includes a race cars-inspired intercooler, a carbon finished aspiration filter casing by BMC, a dual stage exhaust system featuring titanium pipes by exhaust expert Akrapovic. As far as safety features are concerned, the car gets ESP, TTC, ABS, a self locking differential, and a Brembo braking system with perforated and ventilated 305 mm discs. The car rolls on lightweight 18 inch alloy rims manufactured by OZ and are wrapped in 215/35 R18 tires.
As for the styling, the 695 biposto features a matt Grey color, titanium finished door handles, bonnet trim, rear handle and tailgate, high quality plastic materials, carbon finished elements, Abarth Corsa seats, Alcantara and titanium-colored leather upholstery, and much more.
The Abarth 695 biposto is also available with three performance kits: Exterior Kit, Carbon Kit and Racing Kit, all of which come with unique features and components to enhance the performance of the car.
