The Abarth 131 Rally, the vehicle which captured the imagination of an entire generation of car enthusiasts, can be seen once again on roads around the world with a new look. On the fortieth anniversary of its last race, the Scorpion brand is paying homage to it with the Abarth 695 Tributo 131 Rally special series. This limited edition will be available in just 695 units throughout the globe. The latest version of this top-of-the-range model is a tribute to Abarth’s racing history. In fact, competitions have always been part of its DNA and, thanks to the technological "transfer", the most innovative solutions - tested on the track to increase performance and reliability - are adopted on normal production cars, ensuring an adrenaline-filled driving experience. Therefore, the new Abarth special edition is an authentic concentration of technology under the banner of the brand's founding values: Performance and Style. The Abarth 695 Tributo 131 Rally is equipped with a 1.4 T-jet engine which supplies 180 HP and 250 Nm of torque at 3,000 rpm. The maximum speed is 225 km/h and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes place in just 6.7 seconds. It also contains Koni FSD shock absorbers on both axles and a dedicated braking system which includes aluminum Brembo calipers and 4 pistons on the front and 305 mm and 240 mm ventilated discs on the rear.

Direct from the racetracks of Europe comes the roar of the new Abarth F595, the new special series – fitted with an F.4 engine – dedicated to the youngest fans of the Scorpion brand. “Champing at the bit” under the bonnet are the 165 horsepower of the high-performance 1.4-liter Euro 6D-Final-compliant T-jet engine, the basis for the engine in the Tatuus single-seaters used in the Italian and German “F.4 Championships Powered by Abarth Certified by FIA”. The “F” in the name is intended as a tribute to Formula 4, for which Abarth is the exclusive engine supplier and acts as the Title Sponsor. A successful format created as a training ground for young drivers, talents from karting and the professionals of the future, inspired by the legendary “Formula Italia”, established in 1971 with the same philosophy: to provide young drivers with low-cost access to the world of open-wheeled single-seater cars.
