Back after 50 years, and in a hurry.
The legendary 1964 Fiat Abarth 695 has been resurrected in Geneva, with this 500 Bispoto breaking cover and dropping jaws on the Swiss floor in true Italian fashion. Cramming a 190 horsepower, 1.4-liter T-Jet engine into its lightweight 997 kg body, the Bispoto races from 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds. Fiat says this is the “perfect fusion of street and race car”, and is the only in its category to be equipped with an H-pattern gearbox.
With a top speed of 199mph, the 695 Bispoto will come with an assortment of customization packages to add to its standard styling kit. As opposed to the slower, less-powerful Abarth which we already know, the Bispoto comes with only two seats, something which would make an even clearer statement of no intention of ever driving children in it were it to someday hit US showrooms.
