The protagonists of the event are the Abarth 124 spider and the new range of the iconic Abarth 595, developed in the name of its double soul that embodies performance and style. Standard on the new 595 Competizione and 595 Pista a new version of the legendary Record Monza exhaust, which gives the engine a new sound, even more engaging, which underlines its “performance” soul. The rumble that contributes to the sports legend Abarth was the soundtrack of a day with a high rate of adrenaline.
The program, really rich, has provided in fact laps on the track, test drive on the road and on the track, contest and parades, in addition to the performance of the famous motocross champion and freestyler Vanni Oddera.
In addition, to experience the extreme performance of Abarth it was possible to dress as co-driver and turn with professional drivers to drive the gritty Abarth. An event that allowed Abarth fans to vent their adrenaline on the track and to share the passion for the Scorpio brand. Passion that can also be shared within the increasingly numerous community “The Scorpionship”, with its approximately 100,000 fans, to which you can register for free through the site ( scorpionship.abarth.com ).
The success of the Abarth 2018 accompanies that of a brand able to grow on the Italian market by 15 percent compared to 2017, an exploit shared by the main European markets: the increase in Spain is 40 percent, and is around 30 in France and the United Kingdom. The Scorpio, always, is a brand capable of arousing enthusiasm among the public passionate about competition: not surprisingly, a large crowd has accompanied the debut of the new Abarth 595 range recently occurred during the Targa Florio, the legendary “cursa” inextricably linked to the Abarth myth. The decision to present the new 595 to the 2018 edition was also a tribute to the 110th anniversary of the founder’s birth, as well as being a link with the brand’s history and its typical sportiness values.
The new range of the brand’s icon expresses the two souls of Abarth. The 595 Competizione is more “radical” and intended for lovers of performance and sportiness without compromise, the 595 Turismo is linked to the values of style and comfort typical of Italian touring, with great attention to detail, leather interior and Urban Package. The offer is completed with the 595, 595 Pista and 695 Rivale versions: at the following link the press kit of the new Abarth 595 range.
