Little Monster: Fiat Abarth 595 Special EditionsAugust 31, 2020
Abarth has introduced two new versions of the 595 hot hatch. The 595 Monster Energy Yamaha celebrates five years of strategic partnership between the two brands, and the 595 Scorpioneoro turns to history to recall the historic Autobianchi A112 Abart Targa Oro.
Both “Abart” have the same technical stuffing. This is a 1.4-liter “turbo four” T-Jet, developing 165 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque, a standard five-speed manual or an optional robotized gearbox with paddle shifters. Spurt to 100 kilometers per hour in a tiny three-door with a manual gearbox takes 7.3 seconds. The differences between the two machines are in decor, equipment and color.
The Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha hatchback is distinguished by a two-tone blue-black body in the style of the YZR-M1 Monster Energy Yamaha motorcycle for the MotoGP championship (you can also order the car in a completely black version), the logo of the energy engineer of the same name on the hood, gray painted door handles, mirrors, a splitter and a diffuser. In the cabin there are sports seats with the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP logos, a steering wheel with a zero mark, a plate indicating a limited edition (2,000 copies) and a Uconnect audio system with a seven-inch display and built-in telemetry collection software.
Finally, the Monster is fitted with a Record Monza active exhaust, Koni FSD rear shock absorbers and heavy duty brakes.
The Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro hot hatch, like its inspiration for the exclusive 1979 Autobianchi A112 Abart Targa Oro, is finished in black with gold accents. Mandatory attributes are gold wheels, a scorpion on the bonnet and a checkered flag roof, plus leather-upholstered Scorpionflage seats, Scorpion Black décor with matte details, a gold plaque on the center tunnel, and a 480-watt BeatsAudio eight-speaker audio system. In addition to each 595 Scorpioneoro, there is a limited edition Breil chronograph with a scorpion on the dial.
Last fall, Abarth released a collector’s edition of the 695 hot hatch called 70 Anniversario. The three-door is a “charged” modification of the Fiat 500 and is distinguished by the body color, as well as an adjustable spoiler with mechanical adjustment, like on racing cars. It has 12 positions that allow you to tilt from zero to 60 degrees. In the maximum position, the declared aerodynamic load on the rear axle at 200 kilometers per hour is 42 kilograms.
