Pocket Rocket are to pleased to offer for sale a hand selected 2016 Abarth 695 Biposto Record.
This Abarth 695 Biposto Record is an exceptionally rare special edition, with thrilling performance and the perfect dimensions to double up as a fun city car. Under the bonnet is a 187bhp 1.4-litre turbocharged inline-four, vocalised by a character Akrapovic exhaust system, and coupled to a five-speed manual transmission. The odometer shows just 8,556 miles from new.
With a claimed kerb weight of just 997kg, the 695 Biposto Record is a genuinely quick car, capable of accelerating from zero to 62mph in 5.9 seconds, and on to a top speed of 143mph. It rides on remote-reservoir Extreme Shox shock absorbers, lightweight OZ alloy wheels, and is stopped by high-performance Brembo brakes.
One of only 133 built in total, and one of only 39 planned deliveries to the UK market, this Abarth was first registered on 30 December 2016. There are two previous keepers on the V5C.
Its bodywork and paint are in virtually as-new condition, and it certainly presents superbly in the gallery below. The carbon-fibre front spoiler, side skirts, and rear diffuser are also in great shape, with no cracks or chips in the lacquer. All of the body trims are present and correct, and the car’s lightweight OZ alloys have just one small stone chip on a rear wheel, but are otherwise pristine.
Inside, this Abarth looks every inch the miniature racing car, with lightweight door cards and red fabric pull straps, as well as carbon-shelled Sabelt bucket seats. The seats are upholstered in a combination of leather, textured fabric, and synthetic suede, and they remain in excellent order, commensurate with the low mileage.
The last routine service was in December 2019 at 3,648 miles, with Neil Murray Motors carrying out a three-year service with renewed oil and filters. Prior to this, it also had an oil service in November 2018 at 2,095 miles, and its first service in December 2017 at 296 miles.
Accompanying the car is the original book pack, including the owner’s manual and the stamped service record.
This Abarth 695 Biposto Record is an exciting ‘pocket rocket’ that is equipped with a raft of performance upgrades as standard, supplied by leading OEMs. As one of only 133 cars worldwide, this particular Abarth will likely remain collectible over the coming years, but it is best enjoyed on twisting B-roads with the turbocharged engine at full chat, and with the riotous Akrapovic exhaust providing the soundtrack.
