Take a look at the All-New limited edition Abarth 695 XSR Yamaha!

So you’re looking for something sporty, but also the perfect sized car to get you round the city and any trips you may have planned? Take an Abarth 695 and inject into it a bit of Grand Prix motorcycle racing style and you get the All-New Abarth 695 XSR Yamaha.

The Abarth 695 XSR Yamaha is a result of a 10-year partnership between Abarth and Yamaha. The new model has a sporty feel about it both on the exterior and under the bonnet. The 1.4 T-Jet engine is capable of delivering 165bhp with the exterior of the car boasting sleek grey paintwork, with scarlet red accents throughout. The car is finished with 17” matt black alloy wheels, and carbon fibre trim including carbon fibre tipped tailpipes. Don’t forget the world-class Akrapovic exhaust, highlighting the true Abarth racing spirit!

Inside you’ll find super stylish leather sports seats, complete with red stitching, TFT instrument cluster and a 7-inch U-connect infotainment system which includes Live Services as well as being equipped with Abarth Telemetry; an integrated system which allows keen drivers to test their driving ability on top international circuit tracks, providing tips and timings to improve your future track driving experience. The car comes with everything you’ll need to make your car journey all about the classic Abarth power and performance.

This specific model is limited edition only, with only 695 hatchbacks and 695 convertibles manufactured. We’d recommend getting in there quick if you want to get your hands on one!
