It has been a while since Abarth gave us the 595 Competizione, which means the model was in line for a refreshment. As a result, the pocket-rocket gains extra verve and new equipment.

Let's take everything one step at a time, therefore, let's talk power. The Abarth 595 Competizione was granted an extra boost of 20 HP, which means that under the hood, things just got hotter to 180 HP and 250 Nm ( lb-ft) of torque at 2500 rpm.

Translated to on-the-road performance, the technical improvement offers 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of just 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h). Since we're discussing such chilli-hot details, maybe you'll want to know what the standard specs list for the model has to offer. In this case, hear us out.

As standard equipment, clients get 'a throaty' Record Monza exhaust system, 17-inch alloy wheels with titanium finish, Brembo brake system, red brake callipers, leather sports steering wheel, Sabelt sports seats, Xenon headlamps, rear parking sensors and aluminium pedals.

While we take a deep breath, here's what you can have as optional equipment: leather sports seats, electric glass sunroof, Interscope audio system plus several alloy wheel designs and stripe kit choices.

"Abarth's constant striving for enhanced performance has allowed us to introduce this more powerful version of our popular 595 Competizione, which I am sure customers will be delighted with," says Gerry Southerington, head of Abarth UK.

Well, you also have to bear in mind that enhanced performance comes with a price tag. In this case, the Abarth 595 Competizione can be had for a starting sticker of £19,890 ($31,110, 27,857 euro at current exchange rates) for the hatchback and £21,890 ($34,238, 30,663 euro at current exchange rates) for the cabriolet.
