New Abarth 695 Biposto

The most impressive upgrade is the gearbox specifically known as the ‘dog box’. This describes the H-pattern gearbox which allows seamless clutch-less gear shifts giving the driver the exhilarating feel of race car-like acceleration. The special ‘dog box’ gear lever is surrounded by quality leather and sits slightly lower than the standard gear-box.

Choosing the Track Kit optional extra for your Abarth will give you racing carbon-fibre-shelled Sabelt seats with four-point seatbelts, so strap yourself in and embrace the nimble Biposto. The Carbon Kit extra includes carbon-fibre door cards and dashboard that are a great addition to the extreme look of the car.

If you’re not a track day enthusiast and don’t wish to spend much on the optional extras, the standard Abarth 695 Biposto can still give you an exciting ride. A three-bar roll cage and Akrapovic sports exhaust come as standard giving you the touring car feel without compromising on the day-to-day comforts.

The similar 1.4-litre turbo engine found in the original Abarth 500 has been fine tuned to boost the power output from 133bhp to an amazing 187bhp! This amount of power integrated into a superlight-weight chassis at just 997kg is ideal for unleashing on a good track day. Don’t let the compact size fool you, this rocket of a car can do 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds and reach an impressive 140mph top speed.
