From birth until today Abarth has been characterized by achieving the impossible possible. The Abarth 695 biposto adrenalítico is another example of how far the Turin craftsman when it comes to passion and creativity. Also it is the most powerful model series that has never lighting brand perfectly embraces the philosophy of: "On Sunday the circuit to work on Monday."
After its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show the smallest of the league of supercars combines virtues of a racing car with features for day to day. And for a starting price of 40900 euros which yes can easily exceed 60000 if you ride a series of optional kits.
Just as the 50th anniversary of the legendary model 695 Abarth met comes this new version. Half a century later has spent those 30 hp to 190 today coupled with a maximum torque of 250 Nm. Now reaches 230 km / h about 100 more than the original model.
The challenge for engineers was clear: to develop a car with the virtues of competition model of international standard Abarth 695 Assetto Corse but capable while rolling smoothly between normal traffic. Thus its turbo engine 1.4 T-JET yields 190 hp boasts 139 per liter setting a new record in this segment. The weight / power ratio is 5.2 kilos per hp.
The decision to take direct competition elements make this Abarth 695 biposto of proof in the most extreme variant that has never existed model. They draw attention cooler turbo exhaust Dual-Mode Abarth by Akrapovic the BMC air filter adjustable front sport chassis height of Etreme Shox the Brembo brake system light metal rims OZ 18 inches with optimized weight or tubular cross magnesium billed Poggipolini.
And all this integrated into a sexy body. Its design is powerful and unique combining aggressiveness with typical Italian elements. The front bumper is optimized to improve air intake and are now manufactured in carbon fiber. The big spoiler on the rear of the roof serves to generate more pressure on the rear axle.
The doors have just lining inside and only one pair of networks will serve as storage compartments. The door handles interior have been replaced by belts more than enough. The networks behind the seats not only serve to prevent luggage from moving; makes accommodation for helmets.
1.4 liter four-cylinder is exactly the same that were in the Formula 4 the Abarth 695 Assetto Corse and Monoposto. The specific power of 139 hp per liter is achieved through a thorough job on the intake system exhaust and turbo. But more surprising than the figures is the push that responds to every hint of the foot on the accelerator.
To test the Abarth 695 biposto we went to the circuit in Varano northern Italy. Since the early laps you realize that rather than their own skills behind the wheel here you can fully trust biposto 695 chassis. I also try for a mountain road cleared of cars but full of curves of all kinds. I assure you that with a car rally not circulate much faster. Engineers have been planted on a road car the true spirit of one race.
As a world first the Abarth 695 biposto can mount the shift five-speed competition. The management of the knob which is shaped like dog food and is therefore called Dog Rings is withering. No leading conventional synchronizer ring and that allows ultra inserts without the clutch. The grid aluminum shift lever is a little masterpiece which also inevitably reminiscent of competition. Of course retains the classic scheme shaped path H.
