Abarth 695 XSR is a special series created for those who want to pursue more ambitious goals. The ultralight Akrapovič exhaust system with carbon fibre tips enhances its personality, sound and performance. The Alcantara® and Carbon steering wheel, with carbon fibre details and the carbon wing mirror covers also have clear racing origins. Finished with an XSR badge on the tailgate.
The Abarth 695 XSR is available in limited numbers. The uniqueness of each car is certified by a sequentially numbered badge: 695 hatchbacks and 695 convertibles are available.
The Pista version packs a 1.4-liter turbo four rated at 160 horsepower, propelling it to 62 in 7.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 134 mph – roughly the same specs as the US-spec Fiat 500 Abarth. What sets it apart is the rest of the spec sheet.
It features cross-drilled brakes, Koni rear suspension, 17-inch alloys, Abarth Record Monza exhaust, on-board telemetry system… the works, in short, to give it more performance appeal. Buyers can specify the colors of the brake calipers as well as the front and rear bumper inserts, and choose between manual or sequential transmissions.
