Abarth

Hot hatches are getting expensive.

It’s been a busy week for Fiat with the reveal of the 124,but the Italian automaker's tuning company isn’t done revealing small, two-seaters. Welcome tothe extremely limited Abarth 695 Biposto Record, which has been made tocelebrate the 50th anniversary of the hottest variant of the Fiat500. Only 133 units of the 695 Biposto Record will be made and all of them willbe finished in Modena Yellow and Tar Cold grey on the inside. The hatchbackswill also come with a numbered plaque on the outside and inside of the vehicle.

Besides getting a flashy paintjob, the 695 Biposto Record utilizesthe same 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the 695 Biposto thatproduces 190 hp. Thanks to carbon bucket seats with four-point harnesses upfront and the removal of the rear seats, along with other weight-reduction measures,the 695 Biposto Record weighs just 2,198 lbs. With its light weight and powerfulengine, it can sprint to 62 mph from a standstill in 5.9seconds and has a top speed of 142 mph. Just like the standard 695 Biposto, wedon’t expect to see the 695 Biposto Record in the US. That may be a good thing,because the hot hatch will cost Britons the equivalent of $56K, which isn’t cheap.
