Just 133 units of the new Abarth 500 Biposto called "Record" has been recently introduced. The potent hot hatch will be available exclusively in Modena Yellow complete with Tar Cold Grey accents and a selection of custom components.
A 1.4-litre turbocharged 16-valve, four-cylinder engine with an impressive 190 hp on tap at 5500 rpm powers the Abarth 500 Biposto Record. When combined with an overall weight of just 997 kg, a mechanical self-locking differential and a manual gearbox, the 500 Biposto Record accelerates to 100 km/h in a brisk 5.9 seconds while the top speed sits at 230 km/h.
The Abarth 500 Biposto Record has been produced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Carlo Abarth setting a ‘Class G’ acceleration record at Monza. Managers of the British marque hope that the stunning Modena Yellow colour will be enough reason for anyone to want to own a 695 biposto Record. Add in the awesome performance, the standard equipment, the history, and the fact that only 133 examples will be made, they are confident that the car represents a very desirable package that will strike a chord with the Abarth enthusiast.
