Fiat 695 Abarth 70th Anniversario: Guilty Pleasure

Fiat just launched a new limited edition model at the 2019 Abarth Day, the Fiat 695 Abarth 70th Anniversario. Production will be limited to 1,949 units.

As tough as the Fiat 500’s run in North America has been, this small two-door has a totally different reputation in Europe. Especially when unique variants carrying the name Abarth are unveiled.

Fiat was founded 70 years ago by Carlo Abarth. And to celebrate this milestone, Fiat unveiled the boldest – and quirkiest 500 we’ve ever seen, the 695 70th Anniversario edition.

Limited to 1,949 units, this special model will be powered by the same engine than the 695 Abarth model, which is the 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with 180 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. However, it does get a throaty Record Monza exhaust, a limited-slip differential, bright-red Brembo brake calipers and unique 17-inch alloy wheels.

Outside, you can probably see that the body kit has contrasting paint color, along with a checkered flag roof. If that’s not flashy enough, this version of the 695 Abarth sports a wind tunnel-testes manually adjustable spoiler, named “Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile.” This contraption offers 12 different settings, varying from 0 degrees to 60 degrees with the ability to provide 92.6 pounds of downforce at 200 km/h, with a 0-100 km/h sprint is covered in 6.7 seconds!
