With advanced technology borrowed from motor racing and aerospace engineering, the two-seater Abarth 695 Biposto brings you an unforgettable driving experience.
The Abarth 695 is leading the way in the use of pioneering materials in a road car. For example, the 695’s windows are made from polycarbonate, a strong but lightweight material designed for use in the aerospace industry. The Akrapovic exhaust system features titanium tail-pipe ends. Body-coloured wheel arch interiors sit above the Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres which are fitted as standard with 18-inch alloys.
The minimalist interior is designed to keep the car’s weight to a minimum, so there are no unnecessary gadgets here – this car focuses purely on performance. Get strapped into one of the Sabelt Corsa bucket seats, and you will feel ready for anything. The racing seats provide all the support you need as well as looking unbelievably stylish, upholstered in Alcantara and leather, with carbon surround an option. Even the aluminium pedals are special, with titanium trim for added grip. There is polished carbon fibre aplenty, while titanium is used for the pedals and tread plate. Additional options include four-point harnesses, a data tracker and even a fire extinguisher approved by the FIA
The car’s power is delivered by a re-designed edition of the 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol engine, with 187bhp at 5000rpm. The transmission options are a six-speed manual gearbox or a five-speed racing dog-ring gearbox adopted from the Assetto Corse racer, complete with aluminium gearstick. Weighing just 997kg and with a power-to-weight ratio at 188bhp per tonne, the 695 will take you from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds and can reach up to 143mph. The car is compliant with the Euro 6 emissions standard, with CO₂ emissions of 145g/km.
Infotainment is pared back in the 695 – but then you don’t buy this sort of car for its radio and speakers. This car is all about the drive, and you know you are in safe hands with the advanced technology which has been used in its design, from specialist MacPherson suspension to the Brembo braking system. For additional safety in ice and snow you can select the optional winter pack which includes Pirelli Snowcontrol tyres.
