Abarth unveils 595 Pista in Geneva
The star of the Abarth stand at this week’s Geneva Motor Show will be the new Pista version of the iconic Abarth 595.
Abarth is returning to the Geneva stage this week to present its entire line-up.
On the stand will be the Abarth 124 spider together with the new Scorpione special series version, the Abarth 595 Pista and the Abarth 695 XSR Yamaha Limited Edition, which springs from the collaboration with Yamaha Motor Europe.
The Abarth 595 Pista is a new special series of the icon of the brand available with two body types – sedan and convertible.
It is equipped with a powerful 1.4 T-jet 160 hp engine, with a top speed of 216 km/h and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds.
Its racing personality is confirmed by its superior technical contents, such as perforated and ventilated brake discs (284×22 mm on the front and 240×11 mm on the rear), Koni rear suspension with FSD technology and high-performance Abarth Record Monza exhaust with Dual Mode and four tailpipes.
As standard, the 1.4 T-jet engine is paired with a mechanical five-speed transmission but it can be fitted with an Abarth robotized sequential transmission with shift paddles on demand.
In terms of appearance, the Abarth 595 Pista stands out for the possibility of choosing the colour of the front and rear bumper insert, of the rear-view mirror caps and of the brake calipers (black, red or yellow). Furthermore, the door handles and the specific “595 Pista” badge holder have an attractive titanium finish.
