2013 Model Range
« on: April 13, 2012, 11:29:35 am »
Sourced from a French site, the revised Abarth Range - still no word on the 595 prices:

"The major new product this year 2012 will arrive in June with a brand new Abarth range, which will be presented in preview at the Abarth Day on April 21. Thus, the offer is extended and Abarth 500 is structured along three axes: "Accessibility" to attract young fans (Abarth 500 base), "Grand Touring" for comfort, exclusivity (595/595c Turismo ) and "Sportsmanship" (595/595c Competizione).

Thus the basic Abarth 500 is silent on some equipment available today in series to make it even more accessible and always (between 17000 and 18000 € prices are not yet determined but will be soon). Equipped with the 1.4l 140hp T-Jet in manual transmission, the Xenon will therefore now available as an option, but standard equipment is still full with 16'' JA, radar setbacks, manual air conditioning ... A new shade body is born: Azure blue.

Then come the Abarth 595 Turismo Competizione and the philosophy quite different, although both of the proposed 1.4 T-Jet 160 hp with the robotized gearbox (manual option): the first oriented GT, the second sport and affirmed .

The Punto will also see its range is expanding with SuperSport version of 180hp, aggressive style of marriage and racy and a very attractive price (€ 21,990) - and the version Scorpione (€ 25,000), limited edition of only 10 copies for France, a concentrated expertise Abarth."

    Dont worry too much about the translation, the spec for English cars will not necassarily match the spec for other countries in Europe.

    Sounds like the base Abarth 500 may be being despecced slightly but has a slight power increase at 140 hp. I'm not sure if it gets a price drop in France but it possibly reads that way.

    Light blue seems to be a new colour option and on the 500 it has matching blue stripes on the seats.

    The 595 is going to come in two versions - sporty and luxury. It looks like the 595 is a permanent model in its own right and will have 160 hp.

    There seems to be a lot of talk about the flappy pedal gearbox for the 595 - I hope manual is still going to be an option.

    I'm less interested in the Punto  :whistle:

    All of this has been talked about in the other thread that I cant be bothered to go and find. :wave:
    There is no new info in there and the 595 will be a stand alone model and will have the option of both manual and flappy paddle box.
    We know the base 500 is losing some spec, the extent we are not yet 100% about and a price re-alignment is on the cards.
    The only thing we are waiting for is confirmation of price.

    Does this essentially mean that the A500 SS is no more?

    If so that is a shame!

    As far as I know there will still be Esseesse kits, so you can retro fit this to NP 500s.

    The current kits will still be available for NP 500, they will not change.
    There will also be kits available for 595 but the contents of them is still TBC.
