At this month's Bologna Motor Show the Scorpion brand took centre stage, showcasing its production range in the halls while out in the motor sports arena the Trofeo Abarth 500 racers entertained the crowds.
Arbarth at 2010 Bologna Motor Show
Arbarth stand on Press Day at the 2010 Bologna Motor Show, Italy.
The most powerful cars, the most engaging music and the most dynamic young
people: these are the ingredients of the most important motoring event in
Italy which is, by tradition, the Bologna Motor Show. A kaleidoscope of
trends and new features capable of drawing thousands of visitors,
especially young people who find the answer to their expectations and
desires here. A continuously bustling context where Abarth is playing a
leading role. For this reason the brand has decided to take part in the
Bologna show with a stunning stand where major world débuts mingle with
tried and tested models to underscore - yet again - the brand's unique
position on the international motoring stage.
The Abarth 695 "Tributo Ferrari" is also in the spotlight - on display for
the first time with Modena Yellow livery - the fastest and highest
performing road-going 500 ever, arising out of joint venture between Abarth
and Ferrari, based on shared values that include a passion for performance,
a racing soul, attention to detail and Italian style. This numbered and
limited special series has been marketed since July and has already notched
up more than 600 orders; more than half of which are from countries such as
United Kingdom, France and Germany.
There is also space for a Aci-Csai-Abarth Formula model that this year took
part in a championship reserved for this single-seater made by Tatuus on a
carbon fibre body, an FTP Racing 1.4 Fire turbo engine developing 180 HP based on the engine
used in the Abarth 500 Trophy and Sadev transmission with a sequential
six-speed gearbox. This Aci Csai and Abarth single seater trainer is
destined to hone the skills of talented young drivers until 2014, serving
as their career launch pad towards the higher formulas. It is the heir to
the Formula Azzurra category that introduced the Csai "Young Drivers
Project" in 2005. In this sector too, Abarth boasts a long tradition,
dating back to the 1970s and 1980s, with the Italia and Fiat Abarth
formulas that made it possible for drivers of the calibre of Michele
Alboreto, Riccardo Patrese and Alessandro Nannini to make their names.
Bolstered by the success of the recent conversion kits (one Abarth 500 out
of three is converted using the official kit), Abarth presented the new
"esseesse" kits for the Abarth 500C and Abarth Punto Evo at the Bologna
Motor Show. These are designed to improve their performance, handling and
safety without having to renounce the car's low emission and fuel
consumption level. At the stand the public can admire a Punto Evo
"esseesse" and an Abarth 500C "esseesse" that perfectly illustrate the
spirit of Abarth tuning, encapsulating practical elements and unassuming
good looks: in accordance with brand tradition and market requirements,
Abarth cars are a mix of sporty yet elegant looks and safe driving
experience yet always with sporty performance levels.
The Punto Evo "esseesse" is in fact capable of 180 HP with truly thrilling
performance levels: maximum torque of 270 Nm at 3000 rpm in sport mode, top
speed of 216 km/h and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds. On
the other hand, the "esseesse" kit for the 500C turns the Scorpion-branded
convertible into a genuine open-topped sports car: 160 HP, maximum torque
of 230 Nm in sport mode, top speed of 209 km/h and acceleration from 0-100
km/h in just 7.6 seconds.
The Abarth Punto Evo "esseesse" is exhibited with a Campovolo Grey body,
named after the airport, still operational today, that is located opposite
the company's historic headquarters in Corso Marche, Turin. This was where
the young Karl Abarth used to buy paint for his cars, the very same
Campovolo grey shade used for aircraft. In detail, the Abarth Punto Evo on
show combines this particular colour with an Abarth band in the body shade
and 18'' alloys in a special white "esseesse" design. Inside, the car
features "Abarth Corse by Sabelt" seats in black leather with a distinctly
sporty design and an Abarth Blue&MeTM MAP satellite navigation system
complete with telemetrics developed with Magneti Marelli.
