The Abarth brand has announced two new special editions of Abarth 595 models for Europe – the exclusive Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro and the adrenaline-packed Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha.
The Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro is a limited edition of just 2,000 models that pays homage to the exclusive A112 Abarth “Gold Ring”, better known to fans as the A112 Abarth “Targa Oro”. A truly exclusive car, only 150 models of which were produced in 1979, all featuring a black livery, golden details, sophisticated interiors and a wide range of equipment as standard, in line with the Italian tradition of “GranTurismo” cars.
The second special Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha edition is the perfect expression of the Scorpion and Yamaha brands’ shared values, rooted in performance, racing, technology, and fun. This partnership started in 2015, is still going strong, based on its ability to overcome sporting and racing barriers by “going down into the streets” with many adrenaline-packed special editions – the Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition (2015), the two-seater Abarth 695 BiPosto Yamaha Factory Racing Edition (2015), and finally, the Limited Edition Abarth 695 XSR Yamaha (2017).
Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro:
The exclusive Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro represents the perfect blend of lifestyle and performance. Designed for those who want comfort in their daily use of the car, sophisticated details, and do not want to forego performance. Under its bonnet, 165 horsepower “paw the ground”, delivering a power-to-weight ratio of 6.5 kg/horsepower and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in a staggering 7.3 seconds. Its 1.4-liter turbo engine is paired with mechanical transmission, but it can be fitted with an Abarth robotized sequential transmission with shift paddles on demand. Its adrenaline-packed performance seamlessly combined with a distinctive and unique look is a tribute to the exclusive 1979 A112 Abarth “Gold Ring”, more widely known as the A112 Abarth “Targa Oro”, characterized by its black livery, a decorative gold lining around its bodywork, and the glossy gold-painted alloy wheels. The rare models that remain are highly sought-after by collectors.
The special Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro edition is just as impressive and is a genuine “collector’s item”, produced as it is in a limited edition and bearing a prestigious numbered plate in its cockpit. The new special edition features exclusive details. From the outside, it is recognizable by its black scorpion livery – available on request in Podium Blue, Racing White, and Record Gray – and the matt black chessboard roof perfectly matches the “tar cold gray” finish of the handles, mirror caps, and the front and rear air dam. To emphasize its coolness even further, this new special edition includes golden details, such as the scorpion on the bonnet, the lining around its bodywork, and the 17-inch “Golden” aluminum wheels or, on request, 17-inch “Black” aluminum wheels with the golden scorpion on the hubcap.
Inside, the new Abarth “Scorpionflage” sports seats with black leather upholstery and back seat in technical material to better contain the body during the sportiest driving. On the front seat head restraints, embroidered “Scorpioneoro” lettering alongside the Italian flag, and Abarth embroidery. The new seats combine with the Scorpion Black dashboard with matt black details, and with the gold plate on the central tunnel and personalized mats.
To top everything off, the Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro offers one of the best infotainment currently available – the 7-inch UconnectTM system fitted with Apple CarPlay and Google Android AutoTM, the fast platform with high definition monitor, GPS, and DAB digital radio as well as the sophisticated BeatsAudio™ system with an overall output of 480-watt and an 8-channel digital speaker including a cutting-edge equalization algorithm capable of reproducing the full sonic spectrum of a recording studio. Last but not least, a special limited-edition chronograph watch has been created by Breil, dedicated to the new special Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro edition, which includes an incision of the golden Scorpion logo.
Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha:
The new Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha special edition is designed especially for young customers and motorsport fans, with a thrilling while exclusive product, as well as the ultra-high performance of any Abarth.
Produced in a limited edition of 2,000 units, the new special edition celebrates the partnership between the two brands, which has now lasted since 2015. A bond based on shared values – performance, racing, technology, and fun.
Aesthetically inspired by the livery of the 2020 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’s YZR-M1, the exterior of the new special edition features a dual-color blue and black livery – also available in all black on request, bearing the “Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP” logo on its lower side, just above the “595” logo. The special edition is finished off with the Monster “claw” on the bonnet, a sign of the new collaboration between the Scorpion and the renowned energy drink, an “energy boost” for the image of the new special edition. The dark colors are contrasted with the “tar cold gray” finishes, as seen in the door handles and the front and rear air dam.
Inside, the model features the special new Abarth sports seats with blue finishes and the “Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP” logo on the head restraints. The blue lining stands out from the black dashboard. Thus mirroring the dual-color livery, while the numbered plate is placed on the central tunnel.
The Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha is equipped with a 1.4-liter turbo engine, with a manual transmission, but it can be fitted with an Abarth robotized sequential transmission with shift paddles on-demand, delivering 165 horsepower.
As standard, it includes a racecar inspired flat-bottom steering wheel and centering stripe on the top part of the steering wheel rim, particularly useful for sports car driving. The “Sport” button controls the maximum torque delivery, power steering system calibration, and throttle response, last but not least followed by the rumble of the Record Monza exhaust with active valve. The braking system – designed ad hoc for Abarth – provides maximum safety when decelerating via the 284-mm front and 240-mm rear ventilating discs. Also as standard is the Koni rear suspension, with Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) technology to increase road holding, handling, and stability, making it a unique driving experience.
The 7-inch Uconnect™, complete with Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto™, i.e. the best smartphone-mirroring solutions for Apple iOS and Android, is also included aboard the Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha as standard. This one-of-a-kind platform comes with the Abarth Telemetry system built-in, allowing drivers to measure their performance. Last but not least, this special edition includes a dedicated splash screen, displaying the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP logo on the screen at start-up.
