Abarth 695 Tributo 131 Rally Pays Homage To Iconic Race Car

Abarth is making just 695 hatches.

In 2019, Fiat pulled the 500 from the US market. The brand never made much of an impact in this market, leaving only the Fiat 500X as its lone vehicle. The Fiat 500, on the other hand, will be available in 695 special-edition Abarth 695 Tributo 131 Rally cars, which pay homage to the famous Abarth 131 Rally from 40 years ago.

The most powerful version of the 1.4-liter, 16-valve T-Jet engine powers the hot hatch. In the Abarth, it generates 180 horsepower (134 kilowatts) and 184 pound-feet (250 Newton-meters) of torque. It can hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in a respectable 6.7 seconds with a maximum speed of 140 mph (225 kph).

Abarth adds Koni FSD shock absorbers to the front and rear suspension. Brembo four-piston brake callipers are also included, as are black diamond-cut 17-inch alloy wheels. The Record Monza Sovrapposto exhaust system, an extension of Abarth’s Record Monza arrangement, also boosts the car’s sound.

The adjustable variable trim spoiler hanging from the roof is one of the Abarth’s most thrilling features. It’s not new, but it has 12 settings that range from 0 to 60 degrees and can aid the car’s cornering stability. When the spoiler is angled at 60 degrees and the automobile is going at 124 mph, it provides up to 92 pounds (42 kilogrammes) of downforce (200 kph).

The two-tone triple-layer Blue Rally and Scorpion Black bodywork of the Abarth 695 Tributo 131 Rally stands out. Record Gray and Blue Rally liveries are also available. Sebelt fabric seats with blue inlays are found on the inside. The silhouette of the 131 Rally is engraved throughout the car on the Alcantara dashboard, the headrests, and the lower part of the door, among other Easter eggs.

The Abarth 695 Tributo 131 Rally pays homage to the Abarth 131 Rally, which first appeared in 1976. In just six years in the World Rally Championship, it won 18 International Rallies, three World Constructors’ Champions, two FIA Cup for Rally Drivers crowns, and a World Drivers’ Championships title.
