Designer Carlo Abarth -- whose astrological sign was the scorpion -- first began building small-displacement cars in 1949. Cars that struck fear into the big and mighty.
The 595 is based on the successful Fiat 500, making it a worthy continuation of the legacy. Carlo Abarth sold his company to Fiat in 1971. The scorpion logo has since adorned Fiat's most powerful models.
It's all due to the dual mode “Record Monza” exhaust system with 4 tailpipes. It's standard in every Fiat Abarth 595.
The turbo lets the 1-point-1 ton racer reach a maximum torque of 250 Newton meters.
Except for its rounded shape, the Fiat Abarth 595 doesn't have much in common with the standard Fiat 500. The 595 comes with air intakes, seventeen-inch rims...
...and Brembo brakes.
The 595 Competizione bucket seats were specially designed together with sport seat specialist Sabelt.
The one-point-four turbo-charged gasoline engine produces 132 kilowatts of power and accelerates to one hundred kph in six-point-nine seconds. The manufacturer's fuel consumption rating is five-point-eight liters per 100 kilometers.
To heed customer wishes, Fiat will be equipping its next model with Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
