Great news as it’s been confirmed to MotorMartin that the Abarth Pista now joins the 595 range adding a new Garrett turbocharger which delivers 165hp. It is equipped with the Record Monza Active exhaust and Koni rear suspension, with Frequency Selective Damping which offers greater road-hold, handling and stability.
The 595 Pista, Abarth say, is packed with standard equipment including a racing steering wheel with flat bottom and centring mark, the “Sport” button which adjusts peak torque output, power steering settings and the throttle response for an even more thrilling drive. The braking system is also enhanced with ventilated 284mm discs on the front and 240mm discs on the rear.
The new, oversized Garrett turbocharger, with geometric compression ratio reduced from 9.8:1 to 9:1, optimises temperature in the combustion chamber at equal pressure. This allows peak torque of 230Nm to be achieved at just 2,250rpm.
Fortunately the Abarth 595 Pista is available to order now priced from £19,135. Until the end of September, the 595 Pista is available from just £189 per month on PCH with £3,780 initial rental with Leasys.
