Abarth 595 Trofeo Detail Specs and Price. Abarth recently expands its lineup in the UK by launching Abarth 595 Trofeo. Just in case you haven’t heard about this Italian automaker yet, Abarth is actually owned by Fiat Chrysler that builds both road and racing car. Due to its relation to Fiat Chrysler, you shouldn’t be surprised to see that this new car is highly similar with the iconic Fiat 500.
Abarth 595 Trofeo Specifications
Judging from its name, you maybe will suspect that 595 Trofeo has something to do with 595 Pista. Yes, it is true. The new car is based on 595 Pista that was just unveiled at last month’s Geneva Motor Show. The 595 Pista itself is based on a concept that was introduced locally two years ago.
In terms of design, we definitely cannot ignore the resemblance between Trofeo and Fiat 500. As a matter of fact, the new car looks exactly like Fiat 500 but with different badging, at least at first glance. But if you take a look closer at the recently launched Abarth, you will notice that it comes with some elements that distinguish it from Fiat 500. At the front, it is clear that the Trofeo has the different bumper and the grille is also modified. Meanwhile, at the back, the mini lip spoiler becomes the most noteworthy part.
Furthermore, the car is also available with five choices of body paint that is available from the get go—Abarth Red, GaraWhite, Campovolo Grey, Record Grey, and Scorpione Black. In addition to the various exterior colors, the car also comes with fresh 17” Formula alloy wheels in matte black finish, front and rear dam inserts as well as side mirror caps with the red, black or yellow finish.
Inside, the car is equipped with 7” Connect infotainment system that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and also comes with Abarth Telemetry. Speaking of the telemetry system, it is capable of loading various race tracks all around Europe, and according to the automaker, they will work hard to add even more tracks in the near future.
Besides displaying detailed maps on the screen, the telemetry system also can display tips to improve lap times as well as enabling the drivers to access his recorded tracking sessions, making it easy for them to analyze their past performances.

According to Gerry Southerington, brand manager of Abarth UK, adding the telemetry system to the list of 595 Trofeo’s equipment is an excellent way to attract customers who “want to test their car’s performance on a racetrack.”
Abarth 595 Trofeo is only available with one engine that is a 1.4 L TJet petrol engine that churns out 160 bhp. This is enough to send the car sprinting to 62 mph from a standstill in 7.3 seconds before reaching a top speed 134 mph. The engine will be paired to a manual gearbox, and the car will also work with Record Monza exhaust system.
