2012 Abarth 695 Competizione news, pictures, specifications, and information

In line wîth the philosophy that has identified Abarth for fifty years - the transfer of racing experience to the on-road car market and making the world of racing accessible - the Abarth 695 Competizione is born, the first 'street legal' Scorpion racing car. This double-seat car best expresses a concept used to a great extent in the past, which connoted the Abarths as cars designed for the road but wîth the goal of being easily used on the track as well. It is for true sports car lovers as it has the track in its DNA and the road in its heart.

Inspired by the Abarth 500 Assetto Corsa, the exterior of the car flaunts an exclusive Grigio Competizione Opaco livery, embellished by a livery of racing appeal that however forgoes strong colour contrasts in favour of a refined tone-on-tone effect. But the main distinguishing element is inside. Like a real racing car, this is a two seater in which the rear seats are replaced by a roll bar the same Grigio Competizione Opaco shade as the bodywork. In this way the car acquires additional sporting character because the roll bar decreases its weight, making it even better performing. The space left empty by the seats sports a trim reminiscent of the almond of the racing cars, which continues into the boot. The Abarth 695 Competizione has 'Abarth Corsa by Sabelt' seats in black leather wîth Alcantara® red inserts and a carbon fibre shell and seat base. Red stitchings, '695' logo and 'competizione' graphics respectively embroidered on the headrest and backrest further enrich the seats.

The black leather §teering wheel is characterised by a tricolour hub and red inserts, and is fitted wîth 5-speed 'Abarth Competizione' gearshift paddles, while the instrument panel is specially made by Jaeger. The carbon dashboard contains the Abarth Blue&MeTM MAP satellite navigation unit wîth a telemetric function developed in conjunction wîth Magneti Marelli and, on the central console, the chrome plate wîth sequential numbering to demonstrate the exclusivity of the Limited Edition version.

Attention to detail has also been given to the racing pedals, which are personalised wîth the Scorpion logo. Finally, the interior is also embellished wîth the carbon running board wîth '695 Competizione' graphics in a satin aluminium finish.

This special series is also equipped wîth Xenon headlights wîth dipped and main beam functions for improved light emission and excellent efficiency under all weather conditions. The 17' rims whose design is borrowed from the 'Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari', matching the body, and Brembo brake calipers and hub cap, both red, complete the aesthetic features of the exterior.

In keeping wîth its racing vocation, the Abarth 695 Competizione is equipped wîth a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16v engine - tuned to develop more than 180 HP - combined wîth the 'Abarth Competizione' gearbox, an electromechanical gearbox wîth race-inspired §teering wheel controls that makes full use of the engine's performance by reducing gearshift times. In detail, this transmission has two operating modes: 'Street' wîth automatic gearbox and 'Track' where shifting is instead manual, in line wîth the car's vocation, 'Sunday on the track, Monday at the office'.

As on the 695 Tributo Ferrari, the suspension and braking systems have also been further strengthened to cope wîth the extra power: Brembo 305 mm disc brakes that can be dismantled wîth fixed four-piston caliper disc and special shock absorbers that guarantee performance in total safety. And of course there is a 'Record Monza' variable back-pressure 'dual mode' exhaust, designed to improve engine performance and sound over 3,000 rpm.
