Petrol power is set to continue, at least this year, for the hot hatch performance car brand Abarth, with the unveiling of their 132kW 695 Competizione variant. It will be available in both manual and automatic, and priced from $37,900 plus on-roads.
Set to arrive here in November, it will feature a new vertically stacked Record Monza exhaust tip, and will be offered in nine colour combinations, including Racing Orange. Other choices include Gara White, Racing Red, Record Grey and Scorpione Black.
You can also choose to add a Scorpione Black roof to any of the other colours in the range. Groovy paint choices aside, Abarth’s Scorpion is already also an EV, with the 500e even featuring a soundscape of engine noises.
Other highlights include 17-inch Montecarlo alloys, yellow Brembo brake callipers, front and rear KONI suspension, a hidden antenna, privacy glass, and 695 and Competizione badging. It’s powered by a 1.4-litre turbo engine.
Inside you’ll find a 7.0-inch TFT digital instrument cluster, and a similarly sized infotainment system with DAB+ digital radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s Abarth black fabric seats with a check design too.
An Alcantara wrapped steering wheel with carbon fibre look details features, along with a new matte black dash, with optional extras including a Beats premium audio system. The Dualogic auto adds $2,000 to the base price (again plus on-roads).
