Limited Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition for UK customers

A new limited edition Abarth 595 has gone on sale in the UK.

Only 250 examples of the Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition will be available on our shores, priced from £15,150 OTR. The 595 Trofeo Edition adds up to £1,275 worth of extra equipment not normally available at this level in the range - but is priced at £540 more than a standard Abarth 595.

Offered in a choice of three colours (Record Grey, Scorpione Black or Officina Red) the additional features include colour-coded brake callipers with matching wheel centre caps, a carbon-effect Abarth decal set, 17-inch 'Formula' alloy wheels, dark-tinted rear quarter windows and specific 'Trofeo Edition' badges.

Powered by a 140hp, 1.4-litre turbo-charged petrol engine, the 595 Trofeo Edition is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds and has a top speed of 127 mph, whilst returning fuel economy of up to 43.5mpg on the combined cycle.

Sebastiano Fedrigo, Country Manager of Abarth brand, commented: "The Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition is a very special model for the Abarth brand because Carlo Abarth was a racer first and foremost and to this day the Trofeo Abarth Selenia Europe race series remains at the very heart of the brand. Trofeo Edition brings a little bit of that magic to just 250 enthusiasts in the UK which makes it an exclusive and even more desirable package."

The Abarth 595 range starts at £14,610 OTR for the 1.4 T-Jet 140hp hatchback, rising to £23,190 OTR for the Competizione Convertible 180hp MTA (manual transmission automatic).

The Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition is on sale now.
