This tiny terror maybe small but what the Abarth 595 Turismo lacks in size it more than makes up for in speed and pin-sharp performance. It’s ideally suited to the smooth surface of a race track.

Abarth 595 Turismo
Feel the sting of Abarth’s scorpion badge with a day behind the wheel of their fantastically fast 595 Turismo model. Fiat’s racing arm have made their already stylish supermini into a little racing machine, tuned for performance but with unmistakable Italian flair both inside and out. Don’t be fooled by its diminutive size, the 595 conceals a 1.4 litre 16V engine, turbocharged to 163 bhp, with a top speed of 136 mph.
Hit the throttle and achieve 0-60 in 7.3 seconds. Then enjoy the rapid ride of this modern mini racer, which has great handling and beautiful balance making it adept at fast cornering and giving a confident drive.
Abarth’s famous scorpio badge, born from founder Carlo Abarth’s zodiac sign more than six decades ago, has become a marker of the brand’s strong and defiant nature. Their mantra is small, agile cars with mean little engines and the 595 Turismo is, indeed, a tiny terror that just loves the smooth surface of the track, as you will discover during your Abarth 595 Turismo Driving Experience.
