The limited edition Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari, which is a tribute to Ferrari obviously, will also go on sale in United Kingdom as a Right Hand Drive version. Only 152 units of this car are allocated for the British market each priced from 35,500Euros or £29,600. Apart form its Scuderia-inspired paint job and carbon accessories , the car gets a 180 hp 1.4 liter turbocharged engine.

The car features a comprehensive list of equipment which includes:

  • five airbags

Mounted behind the steering wheel are the paddles for the electro-hydraulic Abarth Competizione gearbox which has manual and auto modes. Pressing the Sport button on the dashboard activates a more racy setting for the gearbox, engine control unit and steering for an even more responsive drive.

The original Abarth 695 was introduced in the mid-1960s. The pinnacle of this series was a 38hp engine – though fine-tuning could raise this to over 50hp.

“Abarth and Ferrari are both iconic names in Italian automotive history,” says Ivan Gibson, head of Abarth in the UK. “Their passion and dedication helped to create a reputation for sporting excellence in Italian cars around the world, and this new Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari upholds that tradition with some style.”
