Fresh Photos of the Abarth 595 50th Anniversary

Is the Abarth a hot hatch? Well, it's a hatch and it's hot, but we think it's more like a European version of the Mopar experience. You have different customization options, from the exhaust to interior bits and pieces.

Our favorite has to be the 595 50th Anniversary, not only because it celebrates the original 595 from 1963, but also because it's perfect from top to bottom.

As the model was shown at the 2013 EICMA motorcycle show in Italy, we have fresh press photos of this Scorpion. Its most distinctive feature is the satin white paintjob that pops out thanks to red striping. This is also the most powerful 595 model ever, with 180 hp sqeezed from the 1.4 T-Jet engine. The 225 km/h top speed is accompanied by standard sprint times of under 7 seconds. It really is the perfect toy.

"Engines, cars, races, a passion for cars and a passion for speed is the disease, the beautiful disease that made us love what is always the fastest, always the pinnacle of mechanical perfection," Carlo Abarth once said. This hold true to this day in the wonderful new special edition.
