Abarth 595 50th Anniversary Edition

Abarth returns to the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show to celebrate the Scorpion brand through one of its greatest icons: the 595. The stand will host two exclusive cars: a historic model of the 595 presented to the public in 1963 and an Abarth 595 '50th Anniversary', the new Limited Series inspired precisely by the brand's icon.

Abarth 595 '50th Anniversary': the most powerful Abarth 595 ever. A history of records is revived today in an exclusive limited edition of 299 units. The car has a perfect synthesis of technology and performance, craftsmanship and attention to details. Equipped with exciting performance given by the 180 HP 1.4 T-Jet engine combined with the "Abarth Competizione" gearbox. The exterior features the historical logo on the bonnet and original handmade "Fiat Abarth 595" graphics.

Abarth confirms its Global Brand position: the sales increasingly concentrated outside Italy (76%) and those outside Europe (21%) with an increase of 3% over last year's results confirm the growth of the brand internationally. A clear indication of this openness to foreign markets is that as many as 99 of the 299 Abarth 595 '50th Anniversary' cars will be sent to the Asian markets - and Japan in particular - and to Australia, of strategic importance for the brand's success.
