2017 Abarth 595 Pista

Abarth 595 Pista, the new special series of the icon of the brand, will be debuting in the exhibition area. The model is available wîth two body types – sedan and convertible – and five body colours wîth contrasting details: Campovolo Grey, Gara White, Abarth Red, Record Grey and Scorpione Black.

It is equipped wîth a powerful 1.4 T-jet 160 HP (117 kW) engine, capable of delivering a specific power of 117 HP/litre and developing a torque of 230 Nm at 3000 rpm. The top speed is 216 km/h and the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.3': numbers like these demonstrate that the performance of this car is perfect for anyone lòòking for that racing adrenaline rush. Its racing personality is confirmed by its superior technical contents, such as perforated and ventilated brake discs (284x22 mm on the front and 240x11 mm on the rear), Koni rear suspension wîth FSD technology and high-performance Abarth Record Monza exhaust wîth Dual Mode and four tailpipes. As standard, the 1.4 T-jet 160 HP engine is paired wîth a mechanical five-speed transmission but it can be fitted wîth an Abarth robotised sequential transmission wîth shift paddles on demand. Standard are also the matt black 17' 'Formula' alloy rims wîth 205/45 tyres and fog lights.

In terms of appearance, the Abarth 595 Pista stands out for the possibility of choosing the colour of the front and rear bumper insert, of the rear-view mirror caps and of the brake callipers (black, red or yellow). Furthermore, the door handles and the specific '595 Pista' badge holder have an attractive titanium finish.

Standard on the convertible version, instead, is the electrically operated top and the rear parking sensors.

Optional equipment includes the aerial concealed under the 595 aluminium cap on the roof, Xenon headlights, tinted rear windows and 'Sky Dome' electric glass sunroof on the sedan version.

Height-adjustable, fabric or – on demand – leather Abarth sporty seats, instrument panel wîth 7' TFT colour display, matt grey dashboard fascia, manual climate control system and sporty leather §teering wheel wîth viewfinder complement the interiors. Automatic climate control and electrochromic rear-view mirror are available on demand.

Other equipment on Abarth 595 Pista includes the state-of-the-art Úconnect™ infotainment system wîth 7' HD touchscreen, DAB, six speakers, Bluetooth® wîth audio streaming, ÚSB/AÚX ports and Live services, which can be used to access a number of different applications. The system can be used to log into Facebook and Twitter directly, play over 35 million songs on Deezer and tune to 100,000 radio stations wîth Tuneln. Reuters News offers real time updates, while the TomTomLive services provide information on traffic, weather and speed cameras.

The name of the special series – Pista, Italian for track – makes clear reference to the racing vocation of the model and to the one-of-a-kind features of the Abarth Telemetry system. More in detail, the next-generation capabilities of the infotainment system include the possibility of loading some of the most famous racing circuits in the world, like Monza, Spa-Francorchamps or the Red Bull Ring to name a few, selecting them during track sessions, viewing detailed maps and receiving real-time tips to improve lap times. In this way, Abarth 595 Pista drivers can access their recorded sessions and analyse their performance at any time. There is more: the Routes function can be used to create customised courses, access previously created ones, record GPS traces for each course and analyse then later.

The Úconnect™ infotainment system includes integrated satellite navigator and Premium Beats sound system wîth 440 W of power, six speakers and one subwoofer.

On the Abarth 595 Pista, you can always keep an eye on your performance and share the results wîth friends: the new Úconnect™ system wîth 7' HD touchscreen combines §teering wheel controls wîth Bluetooth, 6 loudspeakers and the DAB system.

The Úconnect™ 7' HD LIVE system is compatible wîth Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™.

Moreover, wîth the Úconnect™ 7' HD LIVE system you can access apps on your Android device thanks to Android Auto, or those on your iPhone using Apple CarPlay. Apple CarPlay is the easiest and safest way to use an iPhone in the car, to acess Maps, Apple Music, to send message and more using Siri voice assistance and Úconnect technology.

This system allows you to drive without distractions, keeping your eyes on the road wîth all the controls close at hand. In addition, wîth the Abarth Telemetry System, you can test your skills on the main international tracks and custom routes.

The Pista version completes the new 595 Abarth line-up, which now includes two body types (sedan and convertible), three trim levels (595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione) and as many engine powers and tuning levels, designed to satisfy today's increasingly discerning and competent customers. The distinctive yet affordable 595 version, wîth its 145 HP of power, is the Abarth entry level model and offers all the standard equipment needed to ensure the typical enjoyment and driving pleasure expected from the brand. The 595 also makes the ideal base for those who want to tune up their car making over it unique. The 595 Turismo and the 595 Competizione express two more distinctive aspects of the Abarth identity. The former, wîth its 165 HP of power, expresses the typical values of an Italian GT, but in a compact size ideal for urban use. The latter, on the other hand, is more radical and adrenaline-packed. With its 180 HP and racing-derived contents, it is designed for motorists wîth a passion for performance and uncompromising sportiness. Both versions can be customised and tuned wîth a complete catalogue of kits and accessories.
