Body & Paintwork
Only available in exclusive ‘Modena Yellow’ with ‘Tar Cold Grey’ trims.
The Record Edition also came equipped with a carbon fibre diffuser at the rear, carbon fibre lower spoiler at the front & carbon fibre inserts within the side skirts.
This example also sports some extra carbon fibre trims to the ‘A’ & ‘B’ pillar trims & also wing mirror caps, all of which are of very nice quality & tie in very well.
The carbon fibre, mixed with the yellow paintwork, grey trims, the lightweight 18″ O.Z alloy wheels & the titanium Akrapovic exhaust all makes for a great combination, really letting people know from the outset, that this is no ordinary Abarth.
This example presents beautifully as of course you would fully expect.
No damage to the bodywork & that includes the carbon fibre trims, the enamelled ‘695 Record’ badges, all glass, trims & wheels, having been freshly detailed/machine polished as part of our preparation – The car looks showroom fresh.
Interior & Trim
The interior of this car, much like the rest of the car, is superb.
Being the Record Edition, this car comes equipped with carbon fibre backed, leather & alcantara Sabelt seats which look absolutely stunning & are of course in fantastic condition.
No rear seats are fitted to this model, instead they have a titanium 3 bar ‘roll cage’ with cargo net which looks great.
This example also has a Carbon fibre dash panel fitted, which ties in very nicely with the Carbon fibre backed seats.
The aluminium pedals & footwell protectors are all in superb condition, as is the leather steering wheel & the lightweight internal door panels.
Limited edition number plaque is positioned in the centre console, stating number 31 of just 133 examples.
The 1.4L turbo charged T Jet engine.
190bhp in a hot hatch weighing only 997kg (unladen) makes for a fantastic little pocket rocket!
Mix that in with a reduction in unsprung weight over a standard Abarth, using lightweight O.Z alloy wheels, along with Brembo 4 piston calipers, & two piece floating discs, plus then add a mechanical limited slip differential, Extreme Shox coilover suspension & you have a go kart that is not to be underestimated on track or indeed on a twisty road!
0-62 mph in a claimed 5.9 seconds & a claimed 143mph top speed mean it must also not be underestimated in a straight line either!
The engine bay presents very well as it should do, still displaying the original carbon fibre cover, BMC intake & Abarth caps.
With only 5,259 miles, the underside looks superb, with even many original labels still in place.
The car drives exactly as it should do, brakes are great, gearbox feels fantastic & the mechanical diff operates very well.
