Abarth 695 Esseesse: the lure of collectors

FineAuto

The hatchback Abarth 595 Esseesse is considered a top-end package, while the Abarth 695 Esseesse is called a new Collector’s Edition, reminiscent of the model of the same name in 1964. For greater importance, the circulation is limited to 1390 units (695? 2). Prices and sales date have not been released. Looking ahead, we note that Esseesse is not much different from variant 70Anniversario (2019).

This one differs from other reincarnations of the gasoline Fiat 500 with its embossed aluminum hood, rear spoiler and decor. Half of the edition is painted in Scorpion Black, the other half in Campovolo Gray. Red Brembo calipers show through the 17-inch discs.

The Italians are promoting the special edition as “the fastest in the lineup.” They say that the new aluminum hood is 25% lighter and, in combination with the Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, reduces the weight of the five-door by 10 kg. In turn, the adjustable rear spoiler increases downforce to 42 kg. As a result, a quarter mile (402 m) climbs one-tenth faster (15.1 seconds).

Technically, Esseesse echoes 70Anniversario verbatim, right down to Koni FSD shocks on both axles. The 1.4 petrol turbo four (180 hp, 250 Nm) on the “mechanics” allows you to change a hundred in 6.7 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 225 km / h. The spoiler tilt angle (0-60) is set manually.

The archaic interior returns not in 1964, but in 2007. The front panel is wrapped in Alcantara with the word “695 Esseesse”. Bucket seats are embossed with one in 695 embossing. The contrast stitching varies depending on the body color, but the seat belts will be red anyway.

Yes, I have been using it for a long time Yes, but I decided not to use it I will definitely subscribe – https:t.me/infocarua

The manufacturer claims that the Abarth 695 Esseesse is “the perfect synthesis of exclusivity and sportiness”, which serves as the “entry point into a super-exclusive world” of high style and “extraordinary emotions”. Version 70Anniversario now “starts” at 35,200 euros, which means that the circulation of 1949 copies in two years is not sold out. The “collector” and “fastest” edition will ask for even more.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
