Abarth consistently trimmed 695 Biposto on racing

For extreme performance counts, as its name suggests, the pure two-seater layout. The rear seat unit flew out, a titanium cage holding tray. Xenon headlamps, fog lamps, climate control, electric windows or the radio system was also sacrificed for the power to weight ratio. Driver and front passenger sit on carbon racing seats and are held in place by four-point belts. The front side windows are now set and carry sliding surfaces made of polycarbonate. For even more potent appearance a new body kit with new bumpers, side skirts, wheel arches and spoilers with carbon inserts ensures.

In the wheel housings to 18-inch wheels rotate with sports tires measuring 215/35. Behind a Brembo brake system with sports 305er discs with four-piston calipers work. The chassis Abarth puts on full inbound and height-adjustable shock absorbers.

PS 190 and any amount of titanium on board

but the heart of Abart 695 Biposto is sure to be 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which brings it here to 190 hp and 250 Nm, which hit only 997 kg weight. In order for the Abarth sprints in 5.9 seconds from zero to 100 km / h and reaches a top speed of 230 km / h. is manually shifted by five courses, plus an optional derived from racing speed manual gearbox can be had. A limited slip differential is always on board.

The optimized charge air cooler is located behind the front bumper, the exhaust gases escape a titanium double pipe exhaust with valve control by the specialist Akrapovic.

Titan was also the choice of material for hood holders in the front, the door handles, the wheel bolts, water, oil and fuel cap. The bonnet with its two humps is made of aluminum, as are the pedals. Exterior mirror housings, door sills and numerous interior trim produced from carbon.

And who wants to take the driving experience on the way to the office or the turn on the runway to take home, to support an electronic data recording.
