Abarth 695 Biposto Record: An Impressively Strong Car With A Complicated Name
|   Wednesday, December 16, 2015
Abarth 695 Biposto is the street's sportiest variant of the Fiat 500 and it arrives in a limited edition. The Italians decided to build only 133 units worldwide, so it's a model that will be less common, just like a supercar from Ferrari. The name is deserved because we are talking about a car equipped with a turbo engine displacing 1.4 liters which develops 190 hp, and weighing only 997 kilograms. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h (0 to 60 miles) is achieved in just 5.
seconds, while top speed is 230 km / h (143 miles per hour), more than enough for the most sporting variant of the town car with the retro design conceived by Fiat.

Each of the 133 Abarth 695 Biposto Record units sold globally will be painted in the color called Modena Yellow and will have Tar Cold Grey accents. In addition to increased power compared to the standard version, the cars will have a selection of special parts. From a mechanical limited slip differential and special manual transmission, up to carbon-fiber seats and Akrapovic sport exhaust. In addition, the Abarth 695 Biposto Record has 18-inch OZ wheels, a set of board clocks with a new design, seatbelts fastened in four points and a luggage rack.

The engraved Brembo braking system, the exhaust system, bearing the signature of specialists from Akrapovic, and trim carbon for both front and rear spoilers and side skirts, completes the exterior package, while the inner pack greets us with Sabelt seats and harness belt.

Those from Abarth have decided to launch this edition with the suffix Record not to bring down a record itself, but to celebrate half a century since setting a record on the Monza circuit.

We are talking about Carlo Abarth's record which set a record for Class G accelerating on board an Abarth 1000 Monoposto Record, rated at 105 hp.
The famous Carlo Abarth managed to set this record at the age of 57, he lost 30 kilograms to easily slip into the cockpit and improve power to weight ratio of the vehicle. Carlo Abarth's record was on the quarter mile acceleration, the pilot set the time of 13.62 seconds, starting from a standstill on a 402 meters distance. If you need an explanation on why they will build just 133 units, you should know that the founder of the Abarth brand has managed to establish 133 records throughout his life.

"The stunning Modena Yellow color is enough reason for anyone to want to own a 695 Biposto Record. 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 with the Abarth enthusiast" said Gerry Southerington, Abarth UK brand manager.

The new Abarth 695 Biposto Record offers 190 hp at 997 kg and costs more than a BMW M235i.
In the end, the new Abarth 695 Biposto Record announced a price to match. UK customers will have to pay no more, no less than 36,610 pounds. This happens in the conditions in which a BMW M235i Coupe starts at 35,075 pounds.
