Abarth Will Fight for Goodwood Attention with 695 Tributo Ferrari

Abarth, the high performance arm of Fiat Group, returns to the Goodwood Festival of Speed for a second year – and the star of the show will be the stunning Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari. The event also marks the first UK public appearance of the new Abarth 500C with manual transmission and the Abarth Punto Evo esseesse. Up until now the 500C version was only available with Abarth’s ‘Competizione’ paddle-shift gearbox.

We’ll remind you that the Tributo Ferrari is already available in Britain in right-hand drive for the price of GBP29,600 and just 152 units will reportedly be sold here. Inspired by the models featuring the Prancing Horse badge, the Abarth 695 Tributo Ferrari features a striking red body finish with two silver stripes. The car also features a redesigned front bumper with new air intakes, carbon wing mirrors and 17-inch Corsa Grey double spoke design alloy wheels.

Standard features also include the electronic stability programme (ESP), torque transfer control (TTC), a Sport button, Xenon headlights, the Blue & Me infotainment system, Abarth's leather wrapped steering wheel, sports seats and a new ‘Record Monza’ dual-mode exhaust.

Thanks to its 1,368cc turbocharged engine, producing 180 bhp at 5,500 rpm and 250 Nm torque at 3,000 rpm, the 695 Tributo Ferrari can accelerate from 0-62 mph in seven seconds and has a top speed of 140mph. However, the frugal engine can return 43.3 mpg on the UK combined cycle.

There will be a limited number of chances for test drives of all the Abarth cars during the festival’s Moving Motor Show.

“Abarth is delighted to be back at Goodwood,”
says Ivan Gibson, head of Abarth in the UK. “It’s one of the leading events on the motoring calendar and is a wonderful opportunity for the public to see and, for a lucky few, to sample the range of Abarth products.”
