Abarth has taken the wraps off the new 595 OT.

Designed to compete in the Italian Tourism Championship and the Abarth Selenia Trophy, the model is being billed as a "highly competitive car" that has been tuned by the Abarth Racing Team.

The company was coy on details but confirmed the model has a new 1.4-liter T-Jet engine that produces 190 horsepower.  It is connected to a six-speed transmission which sends power to the front wheels.

Buyers looking for something more powerful can order a new performance kit which includes a racing exhaust system that promises to make the car even faster.   The package also includes 12-inch floating front brake discs.

Abarth was tight-lipped about additional information but the car features lightweight OZ racing wheels with Michelins.  The model has also been equipped with sport seats, a roll cage, and a front tow hook.

Abarth is currently accepting orders for the model and current 500 Assetto Corse owners can have their car converted into a 595 OT.  Pricing remains unconfirmed but Abarth hinted the model will be affordable as the company said the "joy and excitement of wheel-to-wheel racing will remain accessible to another generation of enthusiasts."
