Fastest ever Abarth 695 launched

It’s Geneva. So, there’s a few announcements of 500s. The 104bhp Twin-Air mentioned previously is showcased (it’s not on the Fiat website yet by the way), and also a super-quick, class leading Abarth.

Launched in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Fiat 500 association with Carlo Abarth with the original 695, the 2014 model year 695 Biposto is under one-tonne in kerb weight (997 kilos), and 187 bhp from the 1.4 litre turbo engine.

With polycarbonate windows, and a titanium roll cage, it’s looking good, and with an impressive price tag to match, at over £30,000.
