Abarth 695 Rivale limited edition unveiled

Following last year's Fiat 500 Riva, it's now Abarth's turn to launch a special model inspired by the Italian boat builder.

The 695 Rivale, which is being offered in both hatchback and cabriolet guises, features Sera Blue and Shark Grey two-tone paintwork. Also adding to the look are Aquamarine stripes, satin chrome details and gloss grey 17” Supersport alloy wheels.

Inside, the specification includes blue leather upholstery, plus customers can choose either carbon fibre or mahogany cabin trim.

If a regular 695 Rivale isn't exclusive enough, then there's the 695 Rivale 175 Anniversary. As that moniker suggests, this version celebrates Riva's 175th birthday.

Among the distinguishing elements are blue and black hand-stitched leather, different wheels and some unique badges. Fittingly, just 175 hatchbacks and 175 cabriolets are going to be produced.

Power for the 695 Rivale and 695 Rivale 175 Anniversary comes from a 1.4 litre turbocharged engine. With 177 bhp (132 kW / 180 PS) and 250 Nm (184 lb/ft) of peak torque, the result is a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 6.7 seconds and a 140 mph (225 km/h) top speed.
