The Abarth 595 goes back to the iconic urban sports line. The denomination esseesse has already been present in the history of the brand and goes back to its origins. This is a real nod to the Scorpion’s past when the transformation kits to improve the performance of the series production vehicles of the sixties made the fortune of Carlo Abarth. The first time the Abarth 595 esseesse was introduced was around the year 1964. It was prepared with the help of a Solex 34 PBIC carburetor and a special intake manifold. This allowed him to increase his power to 32 hp. Aesthetically it was quickly recognizable thanks to several distinguishing features. In 2009 this formula was repeated with the original ‘esseesse’ transformation kit for the new Abarth 500 introduced in the year 2008. Again a specific image and a regulation of the mechanical and technical part. After a decade the name ‘esseesse’ returns to the Abarth line. The new Abarth 595 elite comes on the scene to captivate the high-performing enthusiast crowd. It will be equipped with the gasoline engine with 180 hp, the most powerful of the line. Among the new features are the Abarth by Akrapovic exhaust system, a high-performance Brembo brake system and a specific ‘by BMC’ air filter. All this is completed with the rear suspension Koni FSD. Aesthetically you will quickly catch your eye thanks to the 17-inch Supersport alloy wheels with a new White Racing finish. It also shows some side strips, external rearview mirror housings, front and rear spoiler in the same white tonality. The new Abarth 595 is ‘certified’ by the specific ‘esseesse’ name on its body and still displaying the ’70th Anniversary’ logo.

As for the standard equipment, we find the Uconnect system browser with 7.0-inch HD touch screen with Abarth Telemetry and compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Nor do they overlook the Sabelt 70 sports seats with carbon rear structure and pedals made of the same material. Regarding the mechanical part, as noted above, the new Abarth 595 esseesse will be propelled by a 1.4-liter 180-hp petrol engine and 250 Nm of maximum torque, arising coupled to a five-speed manual transmission and a traction system forward. Thanks to this mechanics will be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 7 seconds and exceed 200 km / h of maximum speed. The 2019 Geneva Motor Show will be the first event where the Abarth 595 will be present. It is one of the news that Abarth has prepared for this important European automobile event.


The Italian brand is present at the Geneva Motor Show 2019 with a revolutionary model, but for the time being it comes in the form of a conceptual work. It is the Fiat Centoventi Concept, a car that just as its name implies, can be customized with a total of up to 120 different possibilities, but that go a step beyond the simple choice of colors and trims. Fiat proposes a revolution in customization, as Centoventi offers a number of options that completely change its appearance, a kind of basic car on which users can create a unique design features. It is an urban vehicle with a length of 3,680 mm, which has a modular construction system that facilitates the assembly of various elements that allow you to change your physiognomy only by removing and placing certain parts of the body and the interior. The user can do much of this work in a simple way, since most of these elements can be removed and placed very simply, although for some more complex elements, such as the ceiling, they should go to a dealer. The Fiat Centoventi will allow you to choose between 4 types of exterior cladding, 4 different types of roof, including an open-pit shape, as well as 4 types of wheel arches and an equal number of formats for the bumpers, as well as the panel and of the infotainment system.

With a very simple mechanical configuration and with the promise of an affordable price, this Fiat electric looks like a perfect substitute for the current Fiat Panda and according to the brand itself, the ideal candidate to be used by carsharing companies or destined to the business fleets.
