Abarth's range of high-performance cars on display at the 2016 Bologna Motor Show includes the Abarth 124 Spider, Abarth 595 and Abarth 695 Biposto. Here are their live images from the show.
Abarth 124 Spider
Originally introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the EMEA-spec Abarth 124 Spider is powered by the 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo petrol engine that produces 170 hp and 250 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission or the 6-speed Sequenziale Sportivo automatic transmission. The Abarth 124 Spider can reach 0-100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and go further to claim a top speed of 230 km/h.
Abarth 595 Competizione
The Abarth 595 is available in three models: 595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione, all powered by the 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol engine. This turbocharged mill produces 145 cv (145 hp) and 206 Nm of torque in the 595 (standard), 165 cv (165 hp) and 230 Nm of torque in the 595 Turismo and 180 cv (180 hp) and 250 Nm of torque in the 595 Competizione. All three are front-wheel drive versions, with power being channeled via a 5-speed manual transmission.
0-100 km/h can be reached in 7.8 seconds in the 595 (standard), 7.3 seconds in the 595 Turismo and 6.7 seconds in the Competizione. In the same order, the top speeds are 210 km/h, 218 km/h and 225 km/h respectively.
Abarth 695 Biposto YFR Special Edition
The Abarth 695 Biposto, also referred to as the 'smallest supercar', also sports the 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol engine. For this variant, the turbocharged engine has been tuned to churn out 190 hp at 5,500 rpm and 250 Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm, and these figures are for a car weighing just 997 kg.
A 5-speed manual transmission is standard, but for a little extra money, 695 Biposto customers can specify a dog ring to explore the car's full ferocity.
0-100 km/h is clocked in just 5.9 seconds, and a top speed of 230 km/h can be achieved.
