    Whilst we were all aware of the 595 I'm not sure that we all understood that it was a full production model rather than a limited edition.  In effect it is taking over, to an extent, from the original 500 SS.

    Will this mean that it will be possible to have a 160 hp car which will have a less onerous servicing schedule (the same as a regular 500 Abarth) or will it be in line with the original SS models?

    Also with the increased power (140 hp) of the revised regular 500, does this indicate a new multiair engine or a simple boost to the original engine?

    not a new engine, no idea about the servicing, lick your finger and stick it in the air for a good guess

    Definately not multiair.
    The servicing schedule will remain the same and the esse esse kit will still be available for the NP A500 which will continue to be sold with some spec and price re-alignment.

    Sorry I may have missed something, but for the 595 is that the same servicing schedule as a 500 or a 500 with SS kit?

    595 will be SS specification, so it will be maintained like a SS, only logical conclusion I would say :D ;D

    I was hoping they might take this opportunity to have a servicing/oil changing schedule in line with the 21st century rather than something in line with the 20th century.

    Maybe its all a part of the retro appeal

    Sell 500, buy German and have the car set for variable servicing, all service timing problems solved  :whistle:

    Trouble is the two Volkswagens I have owned have also been the most unreliable cars I have owned

    The three latest Fiats (incl 1 Abarth) have been the most reliable

    Baby Blue - swoon !!!!!!!

    But I cannot understand why oh why the Multi-Air is not being offered (as well as 6 speed box).   Frankly it is an awesome bit of kit & a definite UPS and real point of difference .......we nearly went for a MA in the Giulietta , it had more character that the TBi TBH (But I wanted the QV more)

    I'm surprised Australia isn't getting US spec as most Aussies i know say the country is more aligned to the US than Europe.  Either way I'd love someone who represents the brand to justify the difference between Europe/US.

    Maybe it's because a multiair A500 would threaten APE sales.  Is the APE available in Australia?  I don't think it's available in the US.  The dealers seem reluctant to say anything and all I've had from Abarth UK is:-

    ".. we can confirm the New Abarth 500 and 595 models will arrive later in 2012, with a launch anticipated for the second quarter of the year (by the summer period)..."

    Will the 595's be offered in all colours or only the Turismo and Competizione colours in the press photos?

    There will be no multiair in 595.
    Colours are to be confirmed but it is believed to be available in most colours including the bi-colours.
    Details will be confirmed when Abarth U.K. confirm the exact specs to the dealer body.
