2016 Abarth 695 Biposto Record news, pictures, specifications, and information
A new, limited edition version of Abarth's stunning 695 biposto, the Record, has just gone on sale, priced £36,610 OTR.

Just 133 examples of the striking 695 biposto Record will be built for worldwide distribution. An exclusive 'Modena Yellow' finish embellished wîth 'Tar Cold Grey' trims, enamelled '695 Record' badge on the side and aluminium bonnet are all standard features.

This small run of cars - 133 is the number of records held by the Scorpion brand - also feature 18-inch OZ alloy wheels, large Brembo brakes and a throaty Akrapovic exhaust. Inside, there is special instrument panel animation, Sabelt carbon shell seats, four point seatbelts, a cargo net and a unique numbered plate.

Based on the sporting, two-seat Abarth 695 biposto, the Record version is powered by the same 190hp 1.4 Turbo T-Jet 16-valve engine. Weighing in at only 997 kilograms, the car has the best weight-to-power ratio (5.2 kg/hp) and the best acceleration (from 0-62mph in 5.9 seconds) in its category. Top speed is 143mph. Peak power is delivered at 5500 rpm and top torque is 250 Nm at 3000 rpm.

The 139hp/litre specific power is remarkable and sets a new record in its class. Performance is secured by a mechanical self-locking differential combined wîth a manual synchromesh gearbox.

The Abarth 695 biposto Record celebrates the 50th anniversary of the day when, aged 57, Carlo Abarth broke a new acceleration record in a Class G car, at the Monza race track. Únable to find the right driver, he decided to lose 30 kilograms in weight to slip into the tight cockpit himself.

His efforts were rewarded in October 1965: Fiat Abarth '1000 Monoposto Record' Class G, 105 HP broke the acceleration record over a quarter of a mile and 500 metre distances.

'The stunning Modena Yellow colour is enough reason for anyone to want to own a 695 biposto Record,' says Gerry Southerington, brand manager, Abarth ÚK. 'Add in the awesome performance, the standard equipment, the history, and the fact that only 133 examples will be made, we are confident that the car represents a very desirable package that will strike a chord wîth the Abarth enthusiast.'
