The Abarth 695 Biposto had its world premiere during the Geneva Motor Show, marking the 50th anniversary of the Abarth 695. The little car is billed as the 'fastest street legal Abarth ever'.
The pocket rocket features a front intercooler, an Akrapovic exhaust system, Extreme Shox adjustable shock absorbers, an MXL digital data logger, Sabelt seats with 4-point seat belts, a Brembo braking system, lightened 18-inch OZ rims and a rear titanium roll bar by Poggipolini.
According to Abarth, with a 190HP, 997kg 1.4 T-Jet engine, the 695 Biposto offers the best weight-to-power ratio in its category (5.2kg/HP) as well as the best acceleration from 0 to 100km/h (5.9 seconds). Maximum speed reaches 143 miles per hour (230 km/h).
The 695 Biposto offers only two seats and could be considered a true sports car - it has fixed front windows with polycarbonate sliding panels and specific styling kit - bumpers, side skirts, wheel arches and spoilers with carbon inserts produced by Zender.
Despite this, it is still a safe vehicle as it is available with ABS, ESP and TTC and a self-locking clutch-plate differential.
The Abarth 695 Biposto will be offered with three customisation kits - the 124 Speciale Kit, the Carbon Kit and the Pista Kit, with each one of them providing a specific exterior look and different racing features.
