Abarth started life in 1949 as a race and tuning specialist and is currently Fiat's dedicated high performance arm (think AMG or M). Today Abarth will sell you brake, suspension and exhaust kits for your Fiat or you could simply buy a ready car like the Abarth 500 and its many iterations. The 595 though is the name that the higher output versions (160PS vs the standard 140) get while the range topping 190PS version is called 695 Biposto. To wit, there are two versions of the Abarth 595 - the Touring and the Competizione. We have the latter that gets sportier wheels and seats as well as a shoutier exhaust. Look out for a full review in our upcoming February issue. Scroll down to catch glimpses from the corresponding photo shoot.

_MG_1584Abarth has done a fantastic job with the exterior, the cheery facade remains but the low bumpers with the bigger air dams convey the sportier intention

_MG_1389Abarth scorpions replace Fiat badges on the front and rear and there's also a delicious 595 badge on the rear quarter panel

The Abarth's engine displaces the same 1368cc as Linea T0jet but it feels vastly different on the road.The Abarth's engine displaces the same 1368cc as the Linea T-Jet but it feels vastly different on the road

_MG_1421Sporty seats from Sabelt look great and are very supportive but have no height adjust

_MG_1574Fiat quotes a 7.6 second 0-100kmph run but the best we could muster was 8.8s

_MG_1348The 595 is an unashamedly single minded machine and we loved it for that - it wants to be driven hard and it will reward you immensely given the right conditions

The Competizione also gets wgat Abarth calls a Record Monza exhaust which essentially reduces back pressure and produces a sweeter note.The Competizione also gets what Abarth calls a Record Monza exhaust which essentially reduces back pressure and produces a sweeter note
