Presenting The All New Abarth 695 Rivale

Abarth has revealed a new special edition of the 695 called the Rivale, celebrating the Italian carmaker's partnership with yacht company Riva.

Described as 'the most sophisticated Abarth ever', the 695 Rivale will be available as a coupe or a cabriolet and will feature a two-tone paint scheme of Riva Sera Blue and Shark Grey.

An aquamarine double stripe surrounds the car, which also has a satin chrome finish on the door handles and tailgate. There are a number of other aesthetic features, such as 17-inch Supersport alloy wheels and assorted badges.

The 695 Rivale is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine, which produces 177bhp and 250Nm of torque. This means the Abarth makes the 0-60mph sprint in 6.5 seconds and carries on to a top speed of 140mph.

Abarth also revealed another special edition, called the 695 Rivale 175 Anniversary, which has been built in order to celebrate 175 years of the Riva brand. Only 350 units will be made – 175 coupes and 175 cabriolets.

It will feature 17-inch alloy wheels with a more intricate pattern, a celebratory exterior badge and various other aesthetic tweaks.
