New Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition

Posted on:

Recently a new special edition of the Abarth 595 has been launched to celebrate the brand becoming the official sponsorship and car supplier of the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP team.

The Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition was designed in partnership with Yamaha and world racing champions Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi.

Yamaha has an incredibly successful automotive history in the motorcycle division and has built engines for a number of performance vehicles over the years – most recently revealing the Yamaha Sports Ride Concept at Tokyo’s motor show. Fiat and Yamaha are completely different and yet they have worked well together on several projects in the past, especially when it comes to MotoGP. In September 2015 three Abarth 695 Biposto special editions were handed over to Movistar Yamaha during a ceremony at Abarth’s headquarters in Turin, Italy. These 695’s are not going to be sold to the public however the latest 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition is expected to be stocked in dealerships in small quantities.

Racy Character

This new design comes with oodles of perky features and performance upgrades. The model can be produced in seven different colours with an array of unique eye-catching features such as 17” matt black alloy wheels, painted brake callipers, darkened windows, flat-bottom leather steering wheel and aluminium pedals. There is also a special 'Yamaha Factory Racing' badge proudly displayed on the tailgate of the 595. 

If that is not racy for you there is a long list of optional extras which includes matching Abarth side stripes and mirror covers, xenon headlamps, leather interior and dual-zone air conditioning.

Performance Upgrades

Guaranteed to make you want to take this 595 on track days, it boasts Abarth’s own Koni suspension package with new shock absorbers of lowered springs from Eibach. This will make a dramatic improvement to the handling and drivability of the special edition 595. At the rear of the car you’ll be amazed by the Record Monza exhaust system with four outlet valves and its powerful sound projection.

In relation to Abarth’s 1.4-litre T-jet petrol engine, the power output has been increased from 138 to 160bhp propelling the car from 0-62mph in just 7.4 seconds with a top speed of 130mph. Fuel economy figures for the five-speed manual model are 47.1mpg with CO2 emissions of 139g/km. The 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition is currently available to order at a selling price of £17,420.
