The readers of “Sport Auto” have decided: their favourite is the #abarth 695 biposto. In the “Sport #auto AWARD 2017” competition, they chose the most extreme and powerful standard #abarth ever in the imported “standard small cars” category. With a turbocharged 190-hp engine and plenty of racing equipment, the #abarth 695 biposto took the second place in the overall rating of its category, beating many German competitors.

“In the sports car segment, the #abarth 695 biposto held its own against very strong competitors. Wining in this segment is further confirmation of our strategy to make racing sports technology available in standard production cars. 'Born on the racetrack, for life on the road' is more than just a slogan for us,” said Harald Koch, Brand Manager #abarth at the award ceremony in Stuttgart.

Not by chance, the #abarth 695 biposto comes closer to the “street-legal racing car” claim than any other model in the history of the brand with the Scorpion badge. The 1.4-litre turbo engine delivers 190 hp at 5750 rpm. The two-seater Italian weighs just 997 kilos, can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 5.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 230 km/h.
