Title: Exact car model
Post by: whizzo944 on April 10, 2021, 04:43:58 pm
Hello All, I have just bought a 2015 Abarth 595 and I'm not sure exactly what spec I have.   The plate in the boot
says   Motore Engine 312A3000  and   Version  312AXF1A 16      The version number doesn't exactly match any model in the handbook and the Engine type can be either 140hp  or 180hp, but I assume that because the car is not a Competizione then it will be 140hp?   Anyone with any knowledge of these numbers and types?

TIA

Dave.

There should be a sticker by the o/s door catch with the power figure.

Have a look at the turbo. If its IHI then likely 145bhp or 160 if turismo. If garret turbo then 180hp.
Hope this helps :wave:

Hello, Shadyracer, no, no sticker in door jamb :-(,  124Abarthreplica, think it's an IHI turbo, so 140hp then?
Don't know if the model year matters but it's 2015
Thanks for your help people.
Dave.
