The convertible Abarth 595c Competizione is a car of both style and substance, well-positioned to hold its own against rivals such as the Mini Cooper.
Based on the iconic Fiat 500 design, the Abarth 595c Competizione is enhanced by its 17-inch alloy wheels and anthracite-coloured side stripe. When you want to feel the wind in your hair you can lower the electric roof at the touch of a button. The 595c convertible features shock absorbers from Koni, while brakes are designed by racing experts Brembo and consist of a perforated disk and four-piston aluminium callipers for superior braking performance and durability. The Record Monza exhaust system has four tailpipes, giving a sporty appearance and that all-important performance sound.
Step inside and you immediately get that sportscar feel, with Sabelt Corsa seats upholstered in black fabric with an anthracite-coloured surround. You can choose to upgrade to a carbon shell with leather and Alcantara upholstery. Visibility is enhanced by the high driving position. Other features which remind you that this is a performance model include the aluminium pedals, footrest and gear knob. Sport mode can be selected at the touch of a button, instantly providing performance metrics on the infotainment system.
When it comes to performance, this car doesn’t disappoint. The Abarth 595c Competizione is fitted with a 1.4-litre 16 T-Jet valve turbo engine, producing power output of 158bhp and maximum torque of 250Nm at 3,000rpm. You can choose from a manual or robotised sequential gearbox, both five-speed. Moving from a standstill to 60mph takes just 6.7 seconds, and the car is capable of reaching up to 135mph.
You will find all the safety features you would expect from a car of this calibre, including airbags, ABS, electronic stability control and daytime running lights.
