The new Abarth 695 70° Anniversario special edition was recently presented in Milan to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Abarth & C. brand and to pay homage to the ingenuity of its founder Carlo Abarth (1908 - 1979), who was the first to understand the potential of tuning and technical upgrading on standard production cars.
Produced in just 1949 units, which was the year the company was founded, the new limited edition is the most important of the sequence of tributes presented during this year’s celebrations.
The looks of the new model pick up some iconic style cues both past and present, such as the Record Monza active exhaust for an unmistakable sound, the new Monza 1958 green livery (a tribute to the colour of the first 500 Abarth that set six international records at Monza that year), the many Campovolo grey details, including the “Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile”, the Body Kit, the front and rear DAMs and the mirror caps.
The same colour is used for the Scorpion stickers on the bonnet and the chequered sticker on the roof to reassert its sporty look.
The new model will be available in the Middle East in early 2020.
